gluten free Lemon Ricotta Protein Pancakes

It has come to my attention that it is National Pancake Day and I feel it is my obligation as a pancake-loving fanatic to share one of my favorite pancake recipes with you!

Let me just clarify that pancakes are appropriate and encouraged on all days... not just National Pancake Day ;)

We love these ones because they are packed with protein and free of refined sugars! Also gluten free for those of you adhering to a gluten free diet.
