Perfect for hibernating on a cold winter Sunday morning, these Blood Orange Whole Wheat Ricotta Pancakes are deliciously fluffy and rich and indulgent tasting. I grew up on pancake mix. And I must tell you my grandmother made some pretty darn delicious pancakes out of that mix. They were always fluffy but brown and crispy on the edges. I never felt slighted in any way that we didn’t make homemade pancakes growing up, because … well, that was all I knew. But once I started making pancakes from scratch, I quickly learned it was well worth the extra effort.Like this recipe for Blood Orange Whole-Wheat Ricotta Pancakes. It’s perfect for the winter months when citrus is in season. The blood orange adds a hint of refreshing, sweet and tart citrus, and of course a beautiful, bold color.
Plus, the ricotta not only adds an extra protein punch, but lends a fluffy, rich and indulgent consistency. For my full recipe, head on over to Food Network’s Healthy Eats Blog.
