Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes

I have extra pumpkin puree in the fridge and I don't want to waste it so I decided to make some pancakes. 
This is the link to the recipe:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes

serves 4

1 large egg

1 cup whole wheat flour

3/4 cup skim milk

2 tbsp light brown sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1 tbsp canola oil

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup chocolate chips

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the egg until thick and frothy. Add the flour, milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, oil, baking powder, pumpkin puree and salt. Beat until just smooth. Add the chocolate chips and beat on high for 15 seconds.

Heat a large skillet over just below medium heat. Drop the batter into circles (I like to use an ice cream scoop) and spread out a bit. The batter will be thick. Cook until golden on both sides.
