Blueberry-Ricotta Pancakes http://www.unclematts.com/blueberry-ricotta-pancakes/ Sat, 10 Jun 2017 21:32:55 +0000 http://www.unclematts.com/?p=2612 more]]> Serve these light pancakes with organic honey. Sprinkling Uncle Matt’s organic blueberries on top of the cooking pancakes ensures even distribution. Keep finished pancakes warm in a 200°F oven, if desired, while cooking the rest.

4 servings, 2 pancakes each | Active Time: 40 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

1/2 cup organic whole-wheat pastry flour (see Source)
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose organic flour
1 teaspoon organic sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
3/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1 large organic egg
1 large egg white
1/2 cup nonfat buttermilk (see Tip)
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon organic lemon juice
2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
3/4 cup fresh organic Uncle Matt’s Florida blueberries

Preparation

Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg in a small bowl. Whisk ricotta, egg, egg white, buttermilk, lemon zest and juice in a large bowl until smooth. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.
Brush a large nonstick skillet with 1/2 teaspoon oil and place over medium heat until hot. Using a generous 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, pour the batter for 2 pancakes into the pan, sprinkle blueberries on each pancake and cook until the edges are dry and bubbles begin to form, about 2 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining oil, batter and berries, adjusting the heat as necessary to prevent burning.

Orange Cranberry Muffins http://www.unclematts.com/orange-cranberry-muffins/ Sat, 21 Mar 2015 21:38:06 +0000 http://www.unclematts.com/?p=2615 more]]> Fluffy, mouthwatering and absolutely scrumptious, these orange cranberry muffins are a real treat and can be part of a healthy breakfast or a perfect snack! Featuring Uncle Matt’s Organic Apple juice, they’re a great recipe to make with kids, too!

Ingredients

2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh Uncle Matt’s no-pulp organic orange juice
1/2 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons orange zest from Uncle Matt’s fresh organic orange
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries, roughly chopped
1 cup pecans or walnuts, roughly chopped (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly grease a muffin tin.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center and add canola oil, orange juice, zest and vanilla. Mix just until all wet ingredients are moistened. About 1/2 way through mixing add the cranberries and nuts.

Fill muffin tins 3/4 full and bake for 23 to 27 minutes, until lightly browned on top and a toothpick or knife inserted through the center comes out clean. When cool enough to handle, transfer to cooling racks to cool completely.
