Chocolate Chip Ricotta Pancakes

These fluffy Chocolate Chip Ricotta Pancakes are an easy, delicious breakfast that is sure to be a hit with the whole family!

Pancakes are always a great breakfast and one we enjoy on lazy weekend mornings at home. There is nothing better than a cozy morning at home, sipping on coffee and nibbling on a fluffy pancake in your pjs! Its what weekends were made for and I, for one, live for these kinds of mornings.

After making these for my husband the other day, he has raved about them since and asked if I can make them and freeze them so he can have them any time of the week. In case you are wondering, yes, you can freeze these and reheat them easily! We have ricotta leftover in the fridge that needs to be used up soon so he may get his wish!

If you have baked with ricotta before, you know just how much moisture and deliciousness it adds to baked goods. It does the same for these pancakes! If you have not tried using ricotta in a sweet dish before but are here cause you are curious about it, I HIGHLY recommend you do it soon! Since ricotta is often used in savoury dishes, I understand how it can seem strange to add it to something sweet, but it works so well and is not strange it all! Its amazing in cannolis and just as great in baked goods!

Did I mention how easy these pancakes are to make? I whip these up in one bowl, making for an easier clean up, cause who wants to be washing extra dishes when its not necessary?

How to make Chocolate Chip Ricotta Pancakes

To make these pancakes, you will need:

  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2-3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips

In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Add the ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup milk, egg, and vanilla extract and mix to form the batter. If the batter is thick, add the remaining milk or as much as needed to reach the right consistency for pancakes (how much milk you need will depend on how much moisture is in the ricotta cheese). Stir in the chocolate chips.


Heat a pat of butter in a frying pan or griddle over medium heat and scoop 1/3 cup pancake batter (or as much as desired). Cook for a couple of minutes and then flip to cook the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.

That’s it! I love to top these with a pat of butter and maple syrup. So much yumminess, you guys!

I hope you enjoy these pancakes as much as I do!
