Pumpkin Pancakes

pumpkinDid you know that a single 1/2 cup serving of pumpkin has 300% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin A? It also has 20% of your daily fiber and some vitamin C and E, as well as calcium.  Obviously this a great vegetable to be eating. But how to get more pumpkin into your diet other than by eating pumpkin pie?  Pumpkin Pancakes of course.

This recipe comes from my wife and if you like pumpkin, this is a great breakfast or brunch item. Heck, it’s good enough to have for dinner.
