Rainbow Caterpillar Pancakes

I posted a picture of these on Facebook and got multiple requests for the recipe, so here it is. I used Swedish Pancake batter because it is a bit thinner and easier to "form" into the caterpillars. The pumpkin puree is optional or you could use another veggie puree. You also don't have to use any whole wheat flour--that is just important to me (for those of you new to the blog that don't already know that.)

4 eggs
4 egg whites
2 cups milk
1 tsp. salt
2 TBSP vanilla
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup white flour
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
food coloring

Mix eggs, milk, salt, vanilla and pumpkin puree with an electric mixer. Add the sugar and flour. Mix well. Divide batter into multiple bowls and add food coloring to make as many colors as you want. Carefully pour batter onto electric skillet making the pancakes touch. Flip very carefully when bubbles form.
