Trans-fat Free, Low Sodium


6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
½ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon sugar
or honey
¾ cup ricotta cheese
2 large eggs
or you can 1 large egg and 1 large egg white
½ cup buttermilk
or non-fat
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
freshly grated
2 teaspoons olive oil
divided, or canola oil
¾ cup blueberries
fresh or frozen, not thawed


Sift all-purpose flour, wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg in a small bowl.

Mix well ricotta, egg, buttermilk, lemon juice and zest in a large bowl until smooth.

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.

Brush a large nonstick skillet with ½ teaspoon oil or coated with cooking spray and place over medium heat until hot.

Cook 2 pancakes at one time, using a generous ¼ cup of batter for each pancake, pour the batter for 2 pancakes into the pan, sprinkle blueberries on each pancake and cook until the edges are dry and bubbles begin to form, about 2 minutes.

Flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes more.

Repeat with the remaining oil, batter and berries, adjusting the heat as necessary to prevent burning.

Serve these light pancakes with Chunky Blueberry Sauce, maple syrup or honey.

Sprinkling the berries on top of the cooking pancakes ensures even distribution.

Keep finished pancakes warm in a 200°F oven, if desired, while cooking the rest.
