One of the most common frustrations for people on a low carb diet is trying to find breakfasts that aren't centered around eggs!  And while this recipe does you eggs as a binder, it's packed with flavor and a great alternative to the traditional egg breakfast for many low carb dieters.  The recipe using ricotta cheese and flaxseed as the base and then is jazzed up with blueberries and lemon zest.  The pancakes aren't as fluffy as traditional pancakes, but are packed with protein and fiber and in my opinion taste pretty darn good.
