Age: 6 months and up
Yield: 12-14 small pancakes
Served With: I served these pancakes with a side of pear puree and sliced raspberries.
Storage: store in an air-tight container in the fridge for 5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months. 
Note on Flour: you can use whole wheat, white whole wheat, all-purpose or gluten-free flour in this recipe.
Note on Milk and Pumpkin Puree: you can use homemade or store-bought pumpkin puree. If puree is too thick, you will need that extra added milk. I was using the Trader Joes pumpkin puree and it was super thick, so I ended up adding 3 tablespoons of milk to my batter. You can use any milk you prefer - regular, oat, almond, soy, etc.
