When it comes to getting a smooth pancake batter with low carb ingredients, your blender is your friend. It helps break up any lumps and clumps that might otherwise mar your perfect pancakes. For these lemon ricotta pancakes, I originally envisioned a raspberry syrup but discovered that someone in my house had eaten all the frozen raspberries. So mixed berries it was! You could do all one berry variety if you prefer. Blueberry syrup would be lovely!

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Ingredients

    Mixed Berry Syrup:
  • 1 cup mixed frozen berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Sugar equivalent to 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • Pancakes:
  • 3/4 cup ricotta
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • Sweetener equivalent to 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Butter or oil for the pan

Instructions

    Syrup:
  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine berries, water and sweetener.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until berries are soft enough to be mashed with a fork.
  3. Sprinkle with xanthan gum and whisk vigorously to combine. Set aside to thicken.
  4. Pancakes:
  5. In a blender, combine ricotta, eggs, lemon juice, water and lemon zest. Blend until well mixed, about 10 seconds.
  6. Add almond flour, sweetener, coconut flour, baking powder and salt and blend until mixture is smooth (if using a coarser almond meal, you will need to blend it for 30 seconds to a minute).
  7. Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat and add butter or oil. Once pan is hot, spoon about 3 tbsp of batter into 4 inch circles and let cook until edges look dry, a few small bubbles appear on the top, and the underside is golden brown. Flip carefully and continue to cook until second side is golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  8. Remove and keep pancakes warm while repeating with remaining batter. You should get about 12 pancakes.
  9. Serve pancakes with butter and mixed berry syrup.

These were awful. The pancakes burned on the outer edges but weren’t cooked enough toward the center to warrant a good flip. I wish I would’ve read the comments first. I would’ve saved myself the trouble with this disgusting recipe. Two thumbs down ? ?

They completely fell apart .. listen I make pancakes perfectly .. coming from a professional .. these pancakes are horrible. Without adding weird thickeners this recipe should be removed. Might as well go out and buy the Keto premixed pancakes you can find at whole foods ..HORRIBLE.

Same problem as other posters. Pancakes never firmed up enough to flip. Bottom burned. I ended up with a pile of wet clumps and burned bits. Loved the concept and the potential flavor. Something must be wrong for virtually all the posters to have the same problem. Hopefully Carolyn will address at some point.

I really wish I would have read the comments first… I usually do. I had exactly the same problem with mine. Burned on medium heat, when I went to flip, they crumbled and made a huge mess. I followed the recipe exactly. What a huge bummer. Also the fact that the author hasn’t addressed any of these issues in the comments or taken the recipe down is disappointing.

Most people just add 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum and it holds together just great

Also goopy – couldn’t flip at all. Even at very low heat they ended up burning before I could flip them. What is the secret to getting these to work? Also are these supposed to make 6 servings (12 pancakes at 2 pancakes each per serving) or 3 servings (6 pancakes at 2 each per serving)? Confused by the phrasing of the serving size.

In addition.. I loved the berry syrup, really nice. The flavor of the dough is good but just very unpancake like more like stayed the consistency of dough.
