Silver Dollar Pumpkin Pancakes

My grandpa always made silver dollar pancakes and bacon on Saturday mornings. I have some great memories of all the grandkids sitting around the kitchen table mopping up syrup with his delicious little pancakes. I have kept the silver dollar cakes in the family and now my kids love them too except my, silver dollar pancakes are now Paleo friendly.
