Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, pumpkin, ricotta, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Add flour and baking powder and mix just to combine, do not overmix.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk egg whites until foamy (about 1 minute), add sugar and continue whisking until firm (or “medium”) peaks form. Gently fold half the egg whites into the pumpkin mixture to loosely combine. Fold the remaining half in to combine.
  3. Heat a griddle over medium-low heat and spray with cooking spray. Drop scant ¼ cup portions of the pancake mix onto the griddle and cook until the edges are firm and the bottom is golden. Flip and cook until golden on the other side.
  4. Mix the yogurt, maple extract, and cinnamon together.
  5. Serve 3 pancakes with 1/3 cup of yogurt topping. Sprinkle pecans over top too if desired.
