Pumpkin Pancakes

I made these this morning and they are really good!  I have a great recipe for cottage cheese pancakes that we all really like.  I just substituted pumpkin for part of the cottage cheese.  If you add a little brown sugar to the batter, you can just butter them and forgo the syrup.

Pumpkin Pancakes

1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (canned pumpkin)
2 eggs
3 tablespoons whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons almond meal **
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tablespoon honey or brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped nuts

Blend the cottage cheese and eggs in a blender until smooth.  Add all remaining ingredients and blend again until smooth.  Add chopped nuts, if using, after all is blended.  Cook on hot griddle like regular pancakes.
Pour yourself some coffee and enjoy!
**If you don't have almond meal, you can replace it with the same amount of flour or any other meal.  Do not try to replace the flour though.  The batter will be too thin and make a pancake that is very hard to turn with out falling apart.
