Pumpkin Pancakes

Oh boy.  These were the fluffiest, most pie-like pancakes I have ever eaten.  Yum-o!  I saw these on Pinterest one night and wanted to try them, so the very next morning I did!  They were quite easy, very "autumn", and so delicious.  Topped with butter and maple syrup and they were pretty much divine.

Pumpkin Pancakes

1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
2 T. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. skim milk (I used 1%)
1 c. pumpkin puree
4 large eggs, separated
4 T. unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract

In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.  In a separate bowl, combine the milk, pumpkin puree, egg yolks, melted butter, and vanilla until smooth.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing with a spatula until just combined.

In a separate bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff.  Gently fold into the batter, mixing until smooth.

Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over medium heat.  Lightly spray with cooking spray and, in 1/4-cup increments, cook each pancake until lightly browned on each side, about 1 minute per side.

Top with your favorite toppings/syrup and enjoy!
