Love the addition of pumpkin for extra fiber and taste! FYI, there is no such thing as sugar free maple syrup. Maple syrup = sugar. She is probably referring to pancake syrup, which is synthetic.

This is a delicious recipe. Quick and easy, too. Not to mention... healthy. I found that with the syrup that I did not need the Splenda, and will probably leave it out next time. Some chopped nuts, or dried fruit would just take this over the top! Thanks for a great recipe.
