Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes - Gluten Free, Egg Free

Is it possible to make it through October without eating massive amounts of pumpkin foods? I don't think so. So, I bring you today.....Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes! Because it's October. :) This recipe is gluten free, egg free, and easily dairy free as well. 

Happy Autumn!
