Happy National Pancake Day! I love using ricotta when baking because it provides a cheesecake-like texture, and in this recipe it adds a richness while making the pancakes light and fluffy at the same time. These low carb pancakes are perfect for Sunday brunch – I like to top them with fresh blackberries and lemon zest, but your favorite sugar-free syrup (I like ChocZero) also works well! They’re also delicious with a simple whipped cream! Make sure to use full-fat ricotta to get your fat macros in. With only 5g of net carbs and a whopping 15g of protein per serving, these pancakes will become a regular beyond today’s “holiday”!
