Ricotta pancakes with blueberries sauce
I am always striving to cook delicious and nutritious food and this recipe makes the fluffiest pancakes while avoiding the calories, carbs and sugars overload. The egg whites is what makes these pancakes so light, the ricotta and milk add proteins, and the blueberries sauce gives it sweetness without adding all the sugar in maple syrup (although you're welcome to add some if you'd like!)
