BREAKFAST

Protein-Packed Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

  • 2 cups frozen wild blueberries

  • 1⁄2 cup water

  • 1⁄4 cup sugar

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt

  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese or

  • ricotta

  • 3 eggs

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour (we like King Arthur's, but these can be just as easily made with white flour—you'll just sacrifice a few grams of fiber.)

  • 1⁄2 tsp baking soda

  • Pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS

1. Mix the blueberries, water, and sugar in a saucepan.

2. Cook over low heat, stirring often, for 10 minutes or until the blueberries begin to break apart.

3. Whisk together the yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs, and lemon juice in a bowl.

4. Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in another bowl. Add the flour to the yogurt mixture and stir just until blended.

5. Heat a large skillet or sauté pan over medium-low heat.

6. Coat with nonstick cooking spray and add batter in large spoonfuls (about 1⁄4 cup each).

7. Flip the pancakes when the tops begin to bubble, 3 to 5 minutes, and cook the second side until browned. Serve with the warm blueberries.
