Happy, happy morning bloggers and particularly those of you who have gone ahead and made my favorite Skinny Ricotta Pancakes on earth! I don’t know about you, but somedays I wake up craving thick, scrumptious, melt-in-your-mouth pancakes. Mmmmm! Most likely, that’s why you’re here. So, today I whipped together some healthy pancakes, only 305 calories for the entire batch! I can’t explain how right on these pancakes are. Picture Matthew McConaughey’s gritty voice saying, “Right on, right on, right on.” What is it about MM? I want to be his niece or something. I bet he’s the coolest guy around Thanksgiving/Christmas. I bet he totally appreciates good food and friends and family and God, and I bet he’s just, ya know, super down to earth. I bet he drinks beer and eats pancakes and . . . oh, right, not the purpose of this post.
Here’s what you’ll need if you plan on making my Skinny Ricotta Pancakes anytime soon:
Pancake Batter Dispenser I Blue and Gold Apron I Polka Dot Flatware I Copper Mixing Bowl I Cupcake Measuring Cups I Measuring Spoons I Flat Spatula I Vintage Whisk I Crepe Maker I Mini Pancake Pan I Oven Mitts I Nonstick Griddle I Waffle Stick Pan
Favorites? Who doesn’t want a pancake batter dispenser to make amazing designs with? Also, if I can’t have those copper mixing bowls, I don’t even want pancakes. Psych! But seriously, I love them. And lastly, count me in for that nonstick griddle. It. IS. Awesome.
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (about 150 calories)
- 1/2 cup fat-free ricotta cheese (about 90 calories)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (about 12 calories)
- 6 tablespoons liquid egg-whites (50 calories)
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (1.5 calories)
- In a medium-sized bowl, mix together all ingredients until combined. Make sure to whip through clumps of oats.
- Drop 1/3 of the mixture into a heated pan (lightly brushed or sprayed with coconut oil). All to heat for about 1 minute 15 seconds on the first side and 45 seconds on the reverse, or until cooked through. Repeat twice.
- Afterward, feel free to top with my low-calorie whipped cream recipe (post to follow) and/or Joseph's low-calorie maple syrup. Enjoy!
