Pumpkin Ginger Pancakes with Granola

Have you every wondered why we don't make holiday "themed" foods other times of the year?  Why should you wait until fall to make pumpkin pancakes?  Well, I don't think you should have to, but if you are going to wait, these pancakes are worth it. Richly spiced and full of pumpkin flavor they are a great weekend morning treat. Enjoy!

1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
3/4 cup milk (soy works just fine)
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons butter or butter substitute, melted
Pumpkin Spice Granola (optional)
Maple syrup for serving

In a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. In another bowl, mix egg, milk, pumpkin, and butter until well blended. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture just until evenly moistened.

Place a nonstick griddle or a 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium heat (350°); when hot, coat lightly with butter/oil. Spoon batter in 1/3-cup portions onto griddle. Sprinkle with granola. Cook until pancakes are browned on the bottom and edges begin to look dry, 2 to 3 minutes; turn with a wide spatula and brown other side, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
