Blackberry Oatmeal Ricotta Pancakes

Blackberry Oatmeal Ricotta Pancakes | Hard Parade
What's your favorite meal of the day? I can say without a doubt that for me, it's breakfast - no matter when I'm eating it. I'm sure my devotion to all things breakfast has come up at least once or twice on Hard Parade. There's nothing better, in my opinion. To quote Leslie Knope of Parks & Rec, "Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?" I don't know, Les.

While I'm not a huge pancake fan, they're Dan's absolute favorite so I recently whipped these up as a weekend morning treat. We had some leftover ricotta in the fridge so I figured I would incorporate it into the mixture and add to the already indulgent pancakes. (Needless to say, I didn't track any Points that day...) 

Along with our pancakes, we had great coffee from our brand new Keurig 2.0. It's a new coffee machine that just arrived in stores and it brews not only a cup but...wait for entire CARAFE of coffee. WHAT?! The carafe K-Cups are a little bit larger and you have the option of brewing 2-3 cups, 3-4 cups, or 4-5 cups (we picked 4-5, of course). With a touch screen and easy to follow instructions, the Keurig 2.0 is 100% the way of the future. I just wish the carafe was a little larger - we go through alot of coffee on the weekends. Check out how cool this thing is:

  • Preheat the oven to 200f to keep made pancakes warm while finishing off the batter
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
  • In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients - ricotta, milk, butter, and eggs
  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry, stirring to combine until just moistened throughout
  • Add blackberries and gently mix in
  • Coat a griddle or non-stick pan with cooking spray. Scoop batter onto pan and cook until browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook an additional 1-2 minutes. Keep made pancakes in the oven so they stay warm
  • Top with maple syrup, butter, and powdered sugar!
