Healthy Apple Cinnamon Ricotta Pancakes


Healthy Apple Cinnamon Ricotta Pancakes are packed with fresh apples and ricotta cheese making these a perfect breakfast treat.

I’ve been in my new apartment for a month now and I still have yet to set off the smoke alarms. Yay. Looking back on making these pancakes, I still can’t believe I made it through the morning without waking up my neighbors. I’m an oven pro but when it comes to the stove, I’m known for burning things but these apple pancakes have no burn marks in sight!

I bought two giant bags of apples last weekend and I’ve been brainstorming apple treats all week. I woke up this morning and immediately wanted pancakes. So of course I took my craving as an opportunity to use up some of my gala apples.

I have a hard time getting enough protein into my diet so I added a scoop of PEScience Snickerdoodle protein powder into these pancakes. You can get 30% off all PEScience products on their website when you use my code PBCHOCO at checkout.
