Recipe

About once I month, my friends and I go on a beautiful hike somewhere in Southern California followed by an indulgent brunch, almost always accompanied by bacon of some sort and at least one mimosa. I always try to fit in extra exercise that week and save up my flex points for the special occasion. Recently, we tried out a restaurant that had the most delicious Lemon Blueberry Ricotta pancakes, and I just had to find a way to make them at home. I started from a Giada de Laurentis recipe and adjusted it to be more weight watchers friendly and incorporate the lemon. I think next time I make them I will make a bigger batch and then freeze them for a quick breakfast during the week.

Directions

  1. Whisk together the pancake mix, sugar, nutmeg to remove any large lumps. In a smaller bowl, mix together the milk, egg, egg white, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and lemon zest.
  2. Mix together the dry and wet ingredients until mostly mixed together. Fold in the ricotta cheese until everything is mixed well. It will be slightly lumpy. You could fold in the blueberries at this point, but I like to add them to the batter as it cooks.
  3. Warm a griddle or pan over medium heat and spray with non fat cooking spray. Pour in a 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and sprinkle blueberries onto the pancake.
  4. Once the batter begins to bubble and cook around the edges, about 3-5 minutes, flip over and let cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  5. Serve with sugar free syrup, powdered sugar, low sugar jam, or lemon curd. Delish!
