Yummy Pumpkin Pancakes

There's nothing like the smell of delicious pancakes on a lazy saturday morning.  I usually make them with this recipe I found on big oven, but today I wanted something new!  While looking through the cabinet to gather the ingredients I realized I had a big, ol' can of Libby's Pumpkin Pie Mix.  And the idea of pumpkin pancakes were born.  I instantly grabbed my phone and searched for a recipe on my Big Oven app.  To my surprise there were some and more than one! I clicked the first one I found and went at it.

This recipe calls for just pumpkin, but I went ahead and used the pumpkin pie mix.  I was thinking that  by doing so I might be able to avoid using the cinnamon, but I found I still needed as much as is in the recipe.  Also, the oil goes into the batter.  She lists to mix everything but the oil.  I cooked them on medium heat.

The recipe was absolutely delicious.  I think they'd be even better with chopped roasted pecans or walnuts in them.  They'd also be great with a cinnamon cream cheese mixture!
