Beat together pumpkin, milk, eggs, oil and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients into the bowl and stir together to form a batter. Fold in the quinoa if desired.
Heat a skillet over medium low heat and grease with nonstick cooking spray. When harmed, scoop 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot skillet and cook for 2 - 3 minutes until bubbles begin to form and the bottom of the pancake has started to brown. Flip and cook 1 - 2 minutes more. Repeat until no batter remains.
Serve with a pat of butter (dairy-free for me!) and pure maple syrup.
