  • 1/3 cup cacao powder (unsweetened, 34 g/ 1.2 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup erythritol (unsweetened, 34 g/ 1.2 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (unsweetened, 34 g/ 1.2 oz)
  • 4 large eggs (unsweetened, 34 g/ 1.2 oz)
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese (unsweetened, 34 g/ 1.2 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (unsweetened, 34 g/ 1.2 oz)
  • sugar free syrup
  • 4 tablespoons yogurt (unsweetened, 34 g/ 1.2 oz)
  • 4 tablespoons coconut milk (unsweetened, 34 g/ 1.2 oz)
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream
  • 3/4 cup berries
  • 2 tablespoons strawberries (unsweetened, 34 g/ 1.2 oz)


  • Mix the dry ingredients: cacao powder, Erythritol, cream of tartar, baking soda and vanilla powder (or cinnamon).
  • Note: Cream of tartar and baking soda act as leavening agents.
  • This is how it works: To get 2 teaspoons of gluten-free baking powder, you need 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar.
  • Instead of this mixture, you can also use gluten and aluminum free baking powder.
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the ricotta cheese, and beat using a hand whisk.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Grease a pan with some ghee or coconut oil and once hot, using a spoon or ladle, create small pancakes.
  • You can use pancake molds like these to create perfect shapes.
  • Cook on low-medium heat for about 5 minutes until the top of the pancake starts to firm up and you see bubbles forming on top.
  • Then, remove the pancake mold (if used), and flip on the other side.
  • Cook for another minute just to crisp up.
  • Repeat for the remaining pancakes and grease the pan as needed.
  • Enjoy with your preferred toppings or let them cool down and place in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days - or freeze for up to 3 months.
  • You can optionally serve the pancakes with full-fat yogurt, sour cream, berries and sugar-free syrup.
  • Apart from sugar-free maple syrup, you can make any flavours you like.
  • I made cherry syrup using Sukrin Clear syrup and cherry extract.
