Lemon Ricotta Pancakes: Hawaii Market Favorite

Lemon ricotta pancakes: Hawaii market favorite. This little recipe was inspired from a little restaurant called the Living Foods Market on the island of Kauai.  You may be thinking anything is good when you can eat it on the beach, right? But in all honesty and fairness this recipe is good anywhere.  The pancake just melts in your mouth and then the blueberries and coconut syrup and did I mention uncured bacon? I still have dreams about this one!  Enjoy and Aloha!

3/4 C flour my favorite is oat or almond
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoon organic cane sugar or raw honey
1 cup ricotta cheese (make sure you use partial skim or full fat or there isn’t enough fluff if your pancake)
3 large eggs
The juice and zest of a lemon and 2 drops of doTERRA lemon essential oil.

Combine flour, baking powder, nutmeg, vanilla, salt and sugar/honey in a small bowl. In a larger bowl whisk together cheese, eggs, milk, lemon juice and zest. Then add dry ingredients into wet ingredients till combined.

Cook on large griddle.

For blueberry compote You can use 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries. Cook on medium heat with just a squeeze of raw honey till blueberries start to break down and become juicy. You can also add a squeeze of fresh lemon and 1 drop of lemon essential oil as well. You can also just use fresh fruit if you don’t want to pull out another sauce pan!

coconut buttermilk syrup

I made my own buttermilk using
1 Cup whole milk (you can also use almond milk)
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Mix and let stand for about 5 minutes till milk thickens.

You’ll also need:
3/4 C cooking coconut oil
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup sugar

In a medium sauce pan combine coconut oil, butter, homemade buttermilk and sugar. Melt and stir until it comes to a boil and then let boil for a couple of minutes. In another small bowl combine baking soda and vanilla. Pour mixture into coconut oil mixture and stir. It will rise quite a bit.

Pull off heat and let stand for a few minutes and drizzle a little over your fruit and pancakes. A little goes a long way and again something a little extra special for a special occasion.
