1. Whisk flour, together with baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and spices together in a medium bowl. 

2. Make a well in center of the flour mixture. Add egg and egg whites, milk, pumpkin and vanilla. Mix all ingredients together using a wire whisk or a blender, until smooth and set aside.

3. Preheat a non-stick or stick resistant frying pan or griddle sprayed lightly with 99% residue free cooking spray over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes.  Pan is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on surface dance and evaporate quickly.

4. Pour ½ cup batter onto hot surface for each pancake. Cook on first side until bubbles form and begin to burst and edges of pancake begin to dry out. Turn pancake over with a spatula and cook until second side is lightly golden brown. Remove from pan and serve or transfer to warm covered plate until ready to serve. Serve pancakes with warm maple syrup.
