True Lemon Ricotta Waffles


Rich and tender on the inside, and crisp on the outside. Just the way waffles should be! Recipe submitted By Alene Zangli.


For the waffles:
2 cups pancake mix (gluten-free mix, if desired)
1 cup milk
1/2 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
1 large egg, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable, or coconut oil
2 packets True Lemon
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
Butter flavored non-stick cooking spray

For the lemon-blueberry sauce:
1 cup fresh blueberries (can use frozen, but thaw first)
1/2 cup sugar
2-4 packets True Lemon

  1. For the waffles: whisk milk, ricotta, and egg until smooth, then add remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  2. Heat waffle maker, and spray each side with butter non-stick spray.
  3. Pour batter into the center of the waffle maker, careful not to overfill. Close lid and press for about 5-mins until steaming subsides, or light switches off. Carefully remove the waffle, then continue until batter is all used. Keep oven warm on low in the oven.
  4. For the sauce: combine blueberries and sugar in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the sugar melts, and blueberries begin to break down (about 5-10 minutes).
  5. Add 2 packets of True Lemon, adding additional packets if desired.
  6. Remove from heat, and serve on top of the waffles.
