Pumpkin Peanut Butter Quinoa Pancakes

These were so amazing that I contemplated crying when they were over. I love the combination of pumpkin and peanut butter. Plus the pumpkin keeps the pancakes moist. The cauliflower sounds weird, but trust me! You can't taste it, and it makes your pancakes thick and cake-like.
