Healthy Lemon Ricotta Pancakes
Not to sound *cheesy*, but these Healthy Lemon Ricotta Pancakes will make your heart skip a beat! They are super fluffy, light, and delicious. Plus, they are super easy to make!
If you are weary about adding Ricotta Cheese to pancakes, trust me when I say you cannot taste it! It simply adds moisture and fluff, and a bit of a butter-y flavor. The rest of the flavor in these pancakes comes from the fresh lemon zest and juice.
Another great thing about these healthy Lemon Ricotta Pancakes is that you can make them in one bowl! Add all the dry ingredients first, then add the wet ones and whisk, whisk, whisk. Make sure you let the batter thicken up for a few minutes before cooking, too. This step is important so you don’t have lame, flat pancakes!!!

These Healthy Lemon Ricotta Pancakes are sweetened with only a touch of honey, making them completely refined sugar free. I like to top mine with maple syrup and fruit, making them a sweeter dish. But, you could totally get away with topping them with some more Ricotta or even Goat Cheese and opt for a more savory breakfast plate! You could even omit the honey if you are going for something more savory.
The base of these pancakes is Oat Flour, which is simply ground up rolled oats. You can purchase Oat Flour pre-made (like this), or buy Rolled Oats (like these) and grind them yourself in a blender or food processor!
