Perfect Pumpkin Pancakes

Perfect Pumpkin Pancakes 
 
 
My daughter is always having friends over on the weekend, so I like to make something fun for them.  These wheat free and dairy free pancakes are certainly kid approved, and they always ask for more.  In fact, most moms call me later for the recipe.  What is it about kids and they will try something different at a friend's house? 
 
 
 
You could also add cocoa powder to make them chocolate, or a few chocolate chips.  I like cocoa powder because it doesn't add any extra sugar, and who doesn't love chocolate for breakfast?
 
1 1/4 cups spelt flour
2 tbsp raw cane sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger, nutmeg and cloves
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup pumpkin purée 
2 tbsp melted butter or oil (coconut is good)
1 egg
2 tbsp ground flax 
 
Mix together and cook on a griddle.  When the pancakes start to bubble it is almost time to flip them.  I always double this batch and then freeze between sheets of wax paper so they don't stick together.  Just pop them in the toaster for a minute and drizzle a little maple syrup over top and enjoy.
