Unbleached white flour ½ cup
Baking powder 1 teaspoon
Salt ½ teaspoon
Pinch fresh grated nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon

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.
