Ricotta Cheese & Protein Powder Pancakes: 21 Day Fix Approved Recipe
1/2 cup light Ricotta Cheese
2 tablespoons vanilla whey (I use Jay Robb's Vanilla Whey Protein Powder)
2.5 Tablespoon almond meal
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
Whisk all ingredients in a bowl until batter is smooth.
Brush non-stick pan with extra virgin coconut oil or ghee; drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 2 to 4 minutes. Flip, and cook until browned on the other side, 1 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter
Variations: you can add cinnamon, nutmeg, or any other spice of your choice in place of vanilla. Sub different flavored protein powders for different flavors! You may omit the maple syrup and use it as a topping if desired.
21 Day Fix container count for entire recipe:
2 red (1 for eggs and 1 for the ricotta cheese + whey powder)
1/2 blue (for the almond meal)
1 tsp for coconut oil
