Directions

1. Combine the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, salt and sugar in a medium bowl.

2. In a large bowl, whisk the pumpkin puree, ricotta, eggs and milk until smooth.

3. Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture, and stir until combined. Then stir in the chocolate chips.

4. Lightly coat a large skillet with cooking spray, and heat it over medium-low heat. For each pancake, pour ¼ cup batter into the skillet. Cook until bubbles form on top, about 3 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side, about 2 more minutes. Serve with maple syrup and extra chocolate chips sprinkled on top.
