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.

Stir together the ricotta cheese, eggs, and vanilla extract.
Add the nutmeg, lemon juice, lemon zest, flaxseed meal, baking powder, and blueberries.
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.
Once the batter begins to bubble and is really cooking through, about 3-5 minutes, flip over and let cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Serve with sugar free syrup or low sugar jam.
