Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2


  1. 1 large egg
  2. 1 c. ricotta cheese
  3. 1 T. vegetable oil
  4. 1 t. pure vanilla extract
  5. 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
  6. 2 T. sugar
  7. 1/4 t. salt
  8. 2-3 T. honey, for serving
  9. Sour cream, for serving
  10. Fresh berries or fruit of choice, for serving


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, ricotta, vegetable oil, and vanilla. The mixture will look curdled and that is normal and what it should look like.
  2. Gently fold in the flour, sugar, and salt until a thick mixture forms. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, preheat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly brush with vegetable oil.
  4. Divide the pancake mixture into 6 equal pieces and, using your hands, form round-shaped pancakes.
  5. Cook the pancakes in batches of 3, until deeply golden-brown on both sides, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.
  6. Serve topped with a dollop of sour cream, fresh fruit, and a drizzle of honey.

With each forkful, experience a harmonious blend of textures and tastes. Functional medicine Studio City wants you to enjoy it!
