Pancakes with Strawberry Compote
- 1 cup flour we used white whole-wheat
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 cup milk low-fat
- 1 egg large
- 2 cups strawberries fresh, sliced - optional frozen and thawed strawberries
- 1/2 cup ricotta cheese low-fat, plus 1 tablespoon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- mint leaves fresh, for garnish (optional)
- Over medium heat, in a medium saucepan, combine 2 cups of the strawberries, and 1 tablespoon coconut sugar. Cook just until the sugar dissolves and strawberries are heated through. Allow compote to cool while preparing batter.
- In a small bowl, mix the ricotta, 1 tablespoon sugar, and vanilla. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes.
- In the meantime, in a medium bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, 1 tablespoon sugar, salt, milk, and egg until smooth. Over medium-low heat, in a small saucepan, lightly oil a griddle or skillet.
- Ladle the batter onto a griddle or skillet and cook both sides of the pancakes until golden.
- Serve the pancakes with the ricotta mixture and strawberry compote on top. Garnish with mint if using.
