A New Spin on Keto Pancakes!
Most pancake recipes boast that they’re the fluffiest recipe on the planet. Well, if they’re not using ricotta cheese, they might fall short in that regard.
Those of us in the keto world know the magic that is cream cheese low carb pancakes. Two main ingredients (cream cheese and eggs) will get you a lightning-quick breakfast that you can dress up any way you like. The cream cheese in that basic recipe can be switched out to other similar, mild-tasting cheeses. One of which is ricotta!
Ricotta is an interesting cheese – it’s crumbly but sticky, so it works in this low carb pancake batter. Make sure to use whole milk ricotta. You don’t want the low-fat stuff. Ever.
Other than ricotta and eggs, we added just a few choice ingredients to add to the pancake eating experience. You can’t forget cinnamon and a bit of baking powder. Make sure to peep at the fun chemical reaction when the baking powder is mixed with the lemon juice!
The lemon glaze is optional. We thought it’d be the perfect way to add a bit more sweetness and lemon flavor, but you can just as easily use Walden Farms Pancake Syrup or Walden Farms Blueberry Syrup. Both are great, based on our extensive testing 🙂
