• 1 egg
  • ½ cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 ¾ cups low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions:

1. Combine eggs, pumpkin, milk and oil in large mixing bowl.

2. Add flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt to egg mixture. Stir gently.

3. Lightly coat a griddle or skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium.

4. Using a ¼ cup measure, pour batter on hot griddle. Cook until bubbles begin to burst, flip over, then cook until golden brown.

Optional: Put a face on the jack-o-lantern, using raisins for eyes and teeth (drop in batter while it cooks).

Tips:

Replace the vegetable oil with applesauce to cut calories, and use whole-wheat flour instead of white flour to add fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
