This hearty breakfast is the perfect start on a cold, frosty morning. Cinnamon in the pumpkin pie spice helps stimulate peripheral circulation, which warms up cold hands and feet, and helps lower blood sugar and triglyceride levels. The addition of pumpkin gives the pancakes a healthy dose of vitamin C, soluble fiber, and beta-carotene.

Blend well with a rubber spatula and transfer to a small serving bowl.
