Pumpkin Pancakes

I have a new obsession with everything pumpkin. So far this year, I have added pumpkin to yogurt and oatmeal along with making pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, and pumpkin pancakes. Admittedly it is a little over the top.

However, the pumpkin pancakes were awesome! And with this weekend being Halloween, I thought this was a timely recipe. Enjoy!!

2 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp groun all spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 Tbsp vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)

Combine wet ingredients in large bowl. In separate bowl combine dry ingredients. Add to wet ingredients and mix until just combined.

Heat lightly oiled griddle or frying pan. Use approximately 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. Cook until golden brown on both sides.

(The first time I made these, I added some chocolate chips. They were heaven! We are having company this weekend--my best friend just moved home from Europe!!--and I can't wait to make these again for Halloween brunch! Also, the last time I made them I had leftovers and just put them in the fridge and had them for breakfast a couple of mornings after microwaving them for a few seconds.)
