Pumpkin pancakes!!

Can you tell I'm on a pumpkin kick? I've been looking forward to working with pumpkin for months so now I'm experimenting!  I really enjoyed these pumpkin pancakes, and although they were pretty low-calorie as well!

I used:

1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbspn sugar (You could sub your own sweetener to lower cals if you like)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp nutmeg
1 egg
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup 3.25% Milk (That was all I had, so you could sub skim, almond or soy milk as well)

First I mixed up all the dry ingredients, then I whisked in all the moist ingredients.

Then I fried them up in a non-stick pan with a tiny bit of cooking spray on medium heat.  I had to cook them slightly longer than normal pancakes because the pumpkin makes them pretty moist.

I actually ate these without syrup and they tasted great!

Calories per pancake were :89cal.  I ate 3 for 267calories and I'm stuffed!

Also, NSV, this morning I shared this pic with my Facebook friends.  It's a 1x shirt that I bought over 5 years ago. Today is the first day I have been able to wear it comfortably!  Losing weight = awesome!
