Sharing is caring!

These Lemon Ricotta Silver Dollar Pancakes are topped with fresh blueberries which add a delicious fresh taste.  Fresh lemon zest gives them the subtle lemon flavor we love, while the protein from the ricotta cheese will kick up your energy to help jump-start your day.  

Perfect to make on Father’s Day! 

We love these lemon ricotta silver dollar pancakes.  They are smaller pancakes in size but will yield about 10 to 12 silver dollar pancakes. 

Plus, they are just as easy to make as our apple cinnamon pancakes, and our lemon blueberry crumble bars. 

Another bonus feature – these pancakes are similar to a cheese “blintz” but with only half the calories.

Serve them with fresh blueberries or raspberries and some maple syrup for a scrumptious breakfast to satisfy your special dad! 

If you have some extra time, you can whip up the egg whites with the sugar until they double in volume and form stiff peaks.  Then fold the egg whites into the mixture. 

This will make these pancakes light and flurry with a golden crust.  YUM!

How to Make these Lemon Ricotta Silver Dollar Pancakes:

4.  Spray a large griddle or non-stick skillet, with cooking spray and over medium heat.  Using a 1/4-cup measure or large spoon, drop the batter onto the hot pan.  Drop as many as you can, and make them into silver dollar pancakes, about 3-inches in width.

5.  Cook for 2 minutes or more until lightly golden brown and turn them over, and cook for additional 1 to 2 minutes until cooked through.
