Raspberry, Coconut and Choc Chip Ricotta Pancakes

Raspberry, choc chip and ricotta pancakesHappy Labour long weekend to all my Melbourne friends!

Oh my Pancakes! I can’t believe it is March already. I am still reporting from our hotel room, we are here for another week then we move into my sister’s spare bedroom for a couple of weeks. The good news is that we are finally moving ahead with our repairs and we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hooray!

I have tried to re-use ingredients to minimise waste, its been working really well. So when I was feeling a little peckish, I scoured the cupboards to see what I had to whip up a quick snack. I found some leftover ricotta in the fridge and decided to try my hand at making ricotta pancakes.

Raspberry, choc chip and ricotta pancakes

This quick breakfast/snack uses basic pantry staples and you can pretty much add any topping that you might like. It is easy to whip these yummy pancakes up in a bowl with a whisk and a bit of elbow grease but seeing I recently injured my mixing arm (el’ right), the Thermomix was a handy ally in my cooking endeavours.

I had some raspberries, desiccated coconut and chocolate chips handy too, so I threw those in. The pancakes centre is super creamy with that hint of tartness that you get from the raspberries – it makes me think that summer hasn’t truly really left us just yet.

Are you embracing autumn recipes yet or like me, are you still holding on to summer?

    I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the web will
    be much more useful than ever before.

    I’m bursting into summer as I live in the northern hemisphere…but I’m always happy to see a comforting pancake recipe, winter or summer! I love your stack of pancakes and their bumpy edges…exactly the same way I would make them 🙂

      Summer always comes and goes too quickly for my liking. It is so weird because when summer is here, all I want is soup, pies and comfort food and when winter is here, I crave citrus salads, smoothies and light meals. I am so weird like that haha. I don’t bother trying to make my pancakes look perfect, the bumps are where all the good stuff is. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. I am loving your blog. xx
