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!

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt).
  2. Make a well/hole in the middle of the dry ingredients and add in all the wet ingredients. Whisk to combine, starting by whisking all the wet ingredients in the middle and slowly incorporating the oat flour.
  3. Let the mixture sit for about 5 - 10 minutes to thicken up. You want to make sure you are not pouring runny batter onto your pan/skillet!
  4. Heat a pan over medium high heat. Add some oil/butter and spoon 1/4 C batter onto the pan. Wait until the edges start to bubble and lose their shine, then flip! Cook about 1 more minute and then plate and serve immediately. Serve with some fresh fruit, maple syrup, or more ricotta cheese!
Recipe Notes

These pancakes freeze well. Make a big batch and freeze for later use for up to a month!
