    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Winter squash sampler, mashed and cooked 2 cups
    Brown sugar 2 tablespoons
    Fat free milk 1 cup
    Egg substitute ½ cup
    Unbleached white flour ½ cup
    Baking powder 1 teaspoon
    Salt ½ teaspoon
    Pinch fresh grated nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon
    Chopped chives 2 tablespoons
    Cooking spray 3 sprays
    Directions
    1. Beat the squash with the brown sugar, milk and egg substitute until smooth.
    2. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Stir the dry ingredients into the squash mixture just until combined. Fold in the chives.
    3. Heat a griddle or heavy skillet lightly sprayed with cooking spray over medium heat.
    4. Preheat the oven to 250°F.
    5. Drop the batter onto the hot skillet by heaping tablespoonfuls. Lightly oil a spatula and flatten the pancakes. When they are golden brown on the bottom, flip them.
    6. As they brown on the other side, transfer them to a baking sheet and keep them warm in the oven while you cook the rest of the batter.
