Protein Packed Pancakes Recipe
These pancakes are an excellent source of high-quality protein. Serve with your favorite syrup, preserves, fresh fruit or nuts.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. melted butter or vegetable oil
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
BEAT eggs, cheese, flour, oil, baking powder, salt and vanilla in large bowl until blended.
HEAT lightly greased large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat until hot. SPOON 1/4 cup portion of batter (1 Tbsp. for silver dollar size) into skillet; COOK until golden brown, turning once.
Always pre-heat skillet or griddle before cooking pancakes. Pan is hot when drops of water sizzle and dance on surface.
Cook pancakes in batches. Serve immediately or keep warm on a plate in a low (200°F) oven until all batter is used.
Make your own freezer pancakes, ready to pop in the toaster on those hurried weekday mornings.
To freeze: Cool pancakes on wire racks. Return to baking sheets; freeze in single layer 1 to 2 hours. Wrap well, individually or stacked; freeze up to 1 month.
