Pumpkin Pancakes

In an effort to get my kids to consume more veggies in their daily diet, I made Pumpkin Pancakes for breakfast. I didn't tell them that there was pumpkin in them (since they don't handle change very well) and thought I'd just see if they noticed anything different. Tys thought they were SO GOOD.... Katie whined for just a second that her pancakes "were dirty" but, once I got her to actually try a bite she loved them! I also put some mini-chocolate chips in them :) I was proud of myself for getting a veggie other than broccoli, carrots or corn into them! Pumpkin Pancakes:
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cinnamon
2 egg yokes
1 cup milk
1/2 cup canned or cooked, pureed pumpkin (I used pureed for mine)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Mix the eggs, milk, pumpkin and oil together in bowl. Add dry ingredients and stir together.
