Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So it is important we enjoy every bite of it. What better way to start the day than eating your favorite pancakes, right? What caught my attention and what made me decide to give this recipe a try is a fact that it has pumpkin in it. I mean, how awesome is that? My kids love pancakes so I made sure that not only did they eat what they like but also it has to be healthy as well. It has a unique taste that you will not find on other recipes of pancakes. It is sweet and mushy. I love how the pumpkin compliments well with the rest of the ingredients. Give this a try and thank me later. Enjoy!
