Pumpkin Pancakes
Add 1 cup of pumpkin and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie seasoning to regular pancake batter made with 1 cup flour or pancake mix. Adds vitamin A.

Animal Shapes
Pour batter into oiled animal-shaped metal cookie cutters on the griddle. When edges are set, remove cookie cutters and flip pancakes.

Surprise Pancakes**

Prepare regular pancake batter from 1 cup of flour or mix, then stir in any one of the following ingredients and cook as usual:

Monkey’s Uncle
Add 1 cup mashed banana and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon.

Berry Delicious
Add 1 cup fresh or frozen fruit.
Add blueberries after the batter has been poured onto the griddle — the pancakes won’t turn blue this way.

Jack Rabbit Flapjacks
Add 1 cup grated carrots and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon.

Awesome Cheddar
Add 1 cup cheddar or American cheese.
