Helen's High-Protein Low-Carb Pancakes

15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
5 ingredients
4 servings
My mom invented this recipe a few years ago for our low carb lifestyle. It makes a nice break from eggs. We have often served these pancakes to guests not on a diet and they enjoy them too. It's a great way to get your omega-3's from flax. The recipe is very flexible, and you don't even need to measure the ingredients--just eyeball the proportions, or vary it to suit yourself after you've gotten the idea. I have used sour cream or cottage cheese instead of ricotta, and it works just as well (plain yogurt would be good, too). Cottage cheese makes a very tender, flavorful pancake, but omit the salt because cottage cheese is quite salty compared to the others.
