ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour (see Source)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 cup nonfat buttermilk (see Tip)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frounceen (not thawed) blueberries
  • Tip: 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.

directions

Whisk the whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg in a small bowl. Whisk the 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.

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.
