A stack of pancakes a day keeps a bad mood away. So if you’re a sweet breakfast lover, why not try your hand (quite literally) at these creamy banana and ricotta hotcakes? In addition to its smooth and creamy taste, ricotta also has a whole host of other benefits, particularly on the health front. It’s high in calcium, rich in Omega 3 and is a complete protein as it contains all of the essential amino acids.
Whoever said pancakes are just for weekends, has clearly never tried these delicious and nutritious Banana and Ricotta Hotcakes.
