While on my quest for pumpkin this month, I thought I’d try my hand at pumpkin pancakes.  Dab on a little bit of cinnamon butter and drizzle some authentic maple syrup.  If you like candied pecans or walnuts, add some of those as well.  Many of our bakeries make a pancake mix from scratch made from fresh ground whole wheat flour, rolled oats, and brown sugar just to name a few ingredients.
