Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup dairy or unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons canola or grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 medium ripe banana, diced

Instructions

  • Heat your griddle over medium-high heat.
  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients - the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, white or brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients - the eggs, ricotta cheese, milk, oil, and vanilla extract., Fold the diced banana into the wet ingredients.
  • Spray the griddle with cooking spray and turn the heat to medium. Measure out a ⅛-¼ cup of batter and pour onto the hot griddle. Cook pancakes until bubbles start to form on top and the pancakes start to rise - about 2-4 minutes, and then flip. Cook until the second side is lightly browned. Continue the process until all batter is gone.
  • If you have leftover pancakes, stick them in the freezer on a parchment-lined baking sheet for about an hour. Once frozen, place in a (or a few) Ziplock freezer bag (get rid of excess air) or freezer-safe airtight container. Separate the pancakes with parchment or wax paper to keep them from sticking together. They should keep in the freezer for 1-2 months. When you’re ready to enjoy them, thaw them in the fridge for a couple hours prior to reheating. After they’re thawed, microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, or until warmed through.
