INGREDIENTS

FOR COMPOTE:

2 cups fresh mixed berries, divided use

¼ cup water

2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup

1 pinch sea salt (or Himalayan salt)

1 tsp. cornstarch + 1 tsp. water (combine to make a slurry)


FOR PANCAKES:

1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder, gluten-free

¼ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)

1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese

¾ cup low-fat (1%) buttermilk

2 large eggs

2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract


INSTRUCTIONS

1. Combine 1 cup berries, water, maple syrup, and salt in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for 10 minutes, or until boiling. Reduce to a gentle boil and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, or until berries have broken down.

2. While berries are cooking, combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together cheese, buttermilk, eggs, maple syrup, and extract. Pour dry mixture into wet; mix until a smooth batter forms. Set aside.

3. When the berries have finished cooking, stir in remaining 1 cup berries and cornstarch slurry. Simmer for 30 seconds, or until thickened; set aside.

4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; lightly coat with spray.

5. Add ¾ cup batter to pan, cook for 3 minutes, or until golden brown on bottom; flip and cook for 3 minutes more, or until golden brown on both sides. Transfer pancake to plate. Repeat with remaining batter to make 4 pancakes.

6. Serve each pancake topped with ¼ cup berry compote, or store refrigerated in separate airtight containers for up to 5 days.
