Blueberry-Ricotta Pancakes

Serve these light pancakes with organic honey. Sprinkling Uncle Matt’s organic blueberries on top of the cooking pancakes ensures even distribution. Keep finished pancakes warm in a 200°F oven, if desired, while cooking the rest.

4 servings, 2 pancakes each | Active Time: 40 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup organic whole-wheat pastry flour (see Source)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose organic flour
  • 1 teaspoon organic sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 large organic egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 cup nonfat buttermilk (see Tip)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon organic lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 3/4 cup fresh organic Uncle Matt’s Florida blueberries

Preparation

  1. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg in a small bowl. Whisk ricotta, egg, egg white, buttermilk, lemon zest and juice in a large bowl until smooth. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.
  2. Brush a large nonstick skillet with 1/2 teaspoon oil and place over medium heat until hot. Using a generous 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, pour the batter for 2 pancakes into the pan, sprinkle blueberries on each pancake and cook until the edges are dry and bubbles begin to form, about 2 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining oil, batter and berries, adjusting the heat as necessary to prevent burning.

Rave Reviews

I have been eating organic for years and just recently picked up your organic orange juice and have to say that I have never tasted such great juice! My only problem is that I have to keep going back for more because I have been drinking so much of it! — Ann M., Houston, TX
