Pumpkin Pancakes

Fall vegetables are starting to mature. In our garden most of them are winter squash of one type or another.  So far we have harvested 3 crates of butternut squash that have been moved to the basement to age, a create of delicata squash that I am look for some new ways to prepare and a fair amount of pie pumpkins. Last week I made pumpkin zucchini spice bread, pumpkin spice cinnamon buns and pumpkin mac and cheese. This morning I made some delicious pumpkin oatmeal pancakes. I hope that you enjoy them as much as we did.
