Millet and Oat Spiced Pancakes

My attempt to make pumpkin pancakes did not quite make it this time. Although, after a few test rounds, I ended up with a nice light batter, fluffy, filling and pumpkin-spiced. Pretty simple to make, now that I got the ingredients set! The millet gives them a sweet vanilla flavour, and is a source of magnesium and B vitamins. These are a great alternative compared to the traditional flapjacks that can be loaded with sugar and refinded white flour. I still have a full ziplock bag full of pumpkin wedges, pumpkin curry anyone?
