⅜ cup 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
½ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
¾ cup part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 large egg white
1 large egg
½ cup nonfat buttermilk (see Tip)
1 tsp freshly grated lemon zest
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp canola oil, divided
¾ cup fresh or frozen (not thawed) blueberry
1. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg in a small bowl. Whisk ricotta, egg, egg white, buttermilk, lemon zest and juice in a large bowl until smooth. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.
2. Brush a large nonstick skillet with 1/2 teaspoon oil and place over medium heat until hot. Using a generous 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, pour the batter for 2 pancakes into the pan, sprinkle blueberries on each pancake and cook until the edges are dry and bubbles begin to form, about 2 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining oil, batter and berries, adjusting the heat as necessary to prevent burning.
Source: Look for whole-wheat pastry flour in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets and natural-foods stores.
Tip: No buttermilk? Mix 1 tablespoon lemon juice into 1 cup milk.
