About this recipe:These fluffy American style pancakes make a special breakfast on cool autumn mornings. My boys loved to help me cook a batch for a 'breakfast for supper' night around Halloween. Use any and all decorations you like to make jack-o-lantern faces on the pancakes. Try broken chocolate bar pieces, banana slices, raisins, dried cranberries or chopped nuts.

Stir together flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves and salt in a large bowl. In a separate large bowl, lightly beat together the milk, egg, pumpkin and oil. Stir flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture, blending just until moistened.
Heat a lightly greased flat griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.
Pour batter, 5 tablespoons at a time, onto the prepared griddle pan. Make a jack-o-lantern face in each pancake with the chocolate chips. Cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
