I came up with this recipe when I was experimenting with my new seed grinder. I also had ricotta cheese in my fridge that I was trying to decide what to do with....thus the ROF pancakes were born. If you can afford to add the extra fat you can use butter in your pan, but I just used a good non-stick one and it worked fine.

  • 2 c. oats, whole, dry, organic
  • 1 c. flax seeds, ground or meal, organic
  • 1 c. cheese, ricotta, raw, grass-fed or pastured, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder, organic, gluten & aluminum-free
  • 1 c. yogurt, greek, plain, full-fat, plain, organic
  • 4 egg, omega-3, cage-free, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, ground, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1/4 water, purified

In a Medium bowl wisk together oats, ground flax seed, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. In a small bowl mix together yogurt, eggs and ricotta cheese. Combine wet and dry ingredients. If you feel like your batter is to thick add water a Tbsp. at a time until it's like a slightly runny cake batter. Heat up your non-stick pan and cook away. I used about 1/4 c. of batter for each of my pancakes. They didn't really bubble so I just kept checking them to see when they needed to be turned. I'm guessing it was about 2-3 min. a side. I topped mine with a small drizzle of honey and a spoonful of greek yogurt. But I bet dried fruit, bananas or nuts would be good too. Enjoy
