Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Brown Butter Syrup

Adapted from Taste of Home October/November 2010
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons packed Splenda blend brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup Egg Beaters
1-1/3 cups fat free milk
1 cup pureed pumpkin
1/2 cup cinnamon goat cheese

In a small heavy saucepan, cook butter over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add the maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg. Remove from the heat; stir in pecans.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, Splenda blend brown sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk the Egg Beaters, milk, pumpkin and goat cheese. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top. Cook until the second side is golden brown. Serve with brown butter.
