Calories: 280
Total Fat: 20 grams
Net Carbs: 9 grams
Protein: 12 grams

Fierce Foods Facts: This flavorful and fun breakfast is loaded with Vitamins A and C - important for a strong immune system and good skin. It also comes with a nice profile of minerals, including magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, and selenium, important for proper thyroid, bone, and heart function.

Directions:

Using a large bowl and spoon, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, flaxseed, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and granulated sweetener. Lightly toss in 1/4 cup of the blueberries and gently mix with flour mixture until blueberries are "floured."

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk of choice, ricotta cheese, lemon juice, lemon rind, and vanilla. For a thicker pancake, use just 1/4 cup of the milk. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry, folding gently. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Preheat a large non-stick pan over low-medium heat, using butter or avocado oil to grease the pan. Once hot, pour 1/4 cup portions of the batter onto the pan and cover immediately. Allow pancakes to cook for 4-6 minutes until the edges brown and bubbles burst on the top of the cake. Flip gently, cook the other side for 2-3 minutes until evenly browned on both sides.

Serve immediately. May top with Monk fruit-sweetened maple syrup and remaining 1/2 cup fresh blueberries.

Kids Can Cook Tips: Kids will have fun measuring all of the ingredients as well as learning how to whisk the eggs. Use a larger bowl with younger kids to help avoid spilling the ingredients. Rubber-bottomed bowls are helpful for that as well.
