Units Scale
  • Avocado Oil
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour
  • 3/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 8 oz container Kite Hill Ricotta Alternative, softened
  • 1/3 cup The Original Oatly Oat Milk (No dairy, no nuts, no gluten), or milk of choice
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Beeyond The Hive Raw Wildflower Honey
  • 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Lemons, zested
  • 1 pint Fresh Blueberries, washed and dried
  • Organic Maple Syrup, for serving
  • Kite Hill Plant-Based European Style Butter, for serving


  1. Prep: To a small bowl, add the ricotta and set aside to soften.
  2. Mix: In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. Blend: To the ricotta, add the milk, eggs, honey, vanilla and lemon zest. With a hand mixer, on low speed, mix until nicely incorporated. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  4. Assemble: Preheat a griddle or skillet to medium-low heat. Add the oil to coat the surface. Scoop about 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto the preheated skillet. Add blueberries to taste.
  5. Cook: Cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the pancakes to a platter and continue with the remaining batter.
  6. Serve: Enjoy with warm maple syrup, butter and extra blueberries.


  • Ricotta: Let it come to room temperature before using. This way, the mixture will be much easier to mix.
