Yummy Tummy Organic Ricotta Cheese Pancakes with Blueberries

Organic Ricotta Cheese Pancakes - MinnesotaFromScratch.wordpress.com

 

I’ve always read that protein is the MOST important part of breakfast, but with kids it’s not always so easy to come up with a protein-packed breakfast that they will eat.  This recipe has been a much favored staple in our breakfast diet since my son was first turned to solids.  I don’t remember where I found the recipe years ago, but it’s easy enough to whip up on a weekday and the left overs can easily be reheated in the toaster for an even quicker breakfast the next morning!

Ingredients (makes 4 pancakes):pancakeingre
I use all organic ingredients.

3 T. Whole Wheat Flour

1 Heaping tsp. sugar

1 tsp. Baking Powder

1 Egg (beaten up a bit)

1/2 Ricotta Cheese

1/4 C. frozen berries  – I typically use blueberries or raspberries or both!

Butter for the griddle

Directions:

Mix the dry ingredients together, add the egg and cheese, stir until mixed, fold in the berries.  On a well heated, buttered griddle (med-high) plop 4 balls of mix and let cook untiil they are ready to flip.  Flip and then mash down with the back of spatula.  Flip again and mash a little again.  Keep going until they look delicious and enjoy!

We serve these with maple syrup or honey (depending on the request of the day).

Enjoy!

    I wonder why I didn’t get a invite for breakfast this morning. HHMM?
    Do you think buckwheat flour would work?
