These healthy pumpkin pancakes are a family favorite- especially in the Fall! By using pumpkin to replace most of the oil you save tons of fat and calories. The pumpkin also adds a nice rich slightly nutty flavor. The pumpkin is rich in beta -carotene, and keeps these cakes light and fluffy! This recipe is also vegan.
