Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    3 eggs (large) separated
    1 whole egg
    1 cup ricotta (part skim)
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon of salt
    1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon or apple or pumpkin pie spice
    1 tablespoon Splenda (optional)
    1/4 cup of whole wheat (or regular) flour
    1 cup of grated apple (approximately 1 large apple)
    (optional scoop of protein powder to give a protein kick)

Directions

Separate three eggs, beating the egg whites until stiff, set aside

Combine yolks, whole egg, ricotta, vanilla, baking soda, salt, cinnamon (or other as desired), flour, splenda together and when done fold in the egg whites.

Using a heated non-stick skillet, cooking spray if needed, drop about 1/3 cup batter and cook until golden brown, turning once.

Eat as is or serve with apple sauce or such other toppings that would compliment this.

Each pancake is roughly 105 calories, with almost 6 grams of protein and 10 carbs, so figuring that two of these are filling, that is roughly 210 calories, low fat. A healthy alternative to the regular pancake.
