Almond Lemon Ricotta Pancakes | Nutrition Stripped

Looking for a new pancake recipe to try? Try these fresh, light, and simple to make Almond Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.

You may have noticed already, but we here at Nutrition Stripped have been on a bit of an Almond Ricotta kick. It all began when we were deciding what to batch cook for the weekend, and I was leafing through the Nutrition Stripped Cookbook and I stumbled upon a recipe for Almond Ricotta Lasagna.

Ever since then, I have been completely obsessed with the versatility of almond ricotta and if you’re anything like me, these Lemon Ricotta Pancakes are going to be your jam!

Healthy Pancakes

The inspiration for these Lemon Ricotta Pancakes was to create a much healthier option that tasted just as good but uses more health-conscious ingredients.

By using almond flour, coconut sugar, and of course almond ricotta, these pancakes are an excellent way to have a healthy breakfast option that still suits your sweet tooth, all while giving a nice boost of protein. Add some of your favorite fresh fruit on top and you’re all set!

Pancake mix hack

Here’s a fun little hack, you can make extra batches of the dry ingredients and store them in your pantry for quick, impromptu pancakes. If stored in an airtight container your pancake mix will stay fresh for about 10 days!

There really is no wrong answer when it comes to how you top your pancakes, but here are a couple of our favorites…

  • Fresh peaches
  • Maple syrup
  • Chopped mint and honey
  • Walnuts, pecans, or macadamia nuts, just pick your favorite!



A vitamin C rich low sugar fruit that adds zing to your meals with both its flavor and vitamin C boost! Try squeezing fresh lemon on greens, in smoothies, on pasta, and on fish/shrimp/chicken/etc. to help increase the absorption of iron, especially non-heme iron from plant-based proteins and plant foods.


Almonds are a good source of B vitamins, vitamin E, manganese, copper, phosphorus, magnesium, molybdenum, monounsaturated fats, fiber, and plant-based protein. In a nutshell (food pun intended), is the nutrient breakdown of about 1 cup of almonds, which is roughly 4 servings:

  • 125% DV of Vitamin E
  • 109% DV of manganese
  • 64% DV of magnesium
  • 57% DV of riboflavin (vitamin B2)
  • 47% DV of copper
  • 46% DV of phosphorus
  • 25% DV of calcium
  • 20% DV of iron
  • 20g protein
  • 11g fiber
  • 47g total fat, which breaks down to about 29g monounsaturated fat, 11g polyunsaturated fat, 3g saturated fat, and total omega-3 fatty acids 5.7 mg (omega-6 is 11462 mg)

Is vaping good for teenagers?

How did vaping become so popular for teenagers?

Vaping is a national thing. Many teenagers love to vape, you can’t get mad at them or judge them for choosing to do this. If they can afford to buy the product then they have the every right to use it. I see vaping teenagers vaping everywhere I go pretty much it has truly taken the world by storm. I am just here to tell teenagers the precautions of why vaping is bad for them, now it is totally up to you guys on how you decide to live your lives. I am just here to help! 

To Vape or Not To Vape?

Seventy-five percent of teenagers today vape. Teenagers see vaping as a safer and less dangerous alternative to smoking cigarettes. Because there have been commercials about how cigarettes are so bad and deadly, e-cigarettes were invented, which are battery powered devices which allow anyone to smoke. Some people say vape and e-cigarettes are bad for you, but others say they are not harmful. Vaping can hurt teenagers in ways that they might not even know, vaping causes many health problems, and contains addicting traits.

How easily teenagers can get vapes.

Firstly, vaping can hurt people and is an alternative version of a real cigarette. Many teenagers have the advantage in today’s society, which is the internet, that I like to call easy access. Many teenagers are able to purchase vapes online just by ordering them but only if they are eighteen years or older. It allows you access to vapes without any further questions so you can easily pretend to be an older age and that allows you to buy whatever vape product you want. Kids, even at the early age of seven, have been caught vaping by their parents. If teenagers can have this amount of easy access in today’s society, imagine what they can get in the future. The internet needs better security with age limits.

How teenagers can become addicted to vaping.

Furthermore, many of the vapes contain addicting traits. Vaping causes many people to get addicted to nicotine (webmd.com). Because they use it so much. They cost less money so you are able to use them more. They also contain substances like nicotine in them, which cause people to become addicted. They also have many options and flavors to choose from. Which can lead to people becoming addicted. Vaping is the new trend now, so many teenagers will want to try it because it’s hot and kids love fitting in with the new trends; it’s just the way life goes. Vaping simulates real life smoking, it’s just in a different form. 

Vaping can effect teenagers health 

Vaping causes many health problems. It may seem healthy at the beginning and many people say it’s water vapor so it’s fine. Vaping can cause many harmful things to your body such as popcorn lungs and heart disease. It can harm the development of kids, it can cause cancer and is it is a public health concern. Many people don’t see public issues about vaping but there are stories in the world about vaping that we just don’t hear about. Honestly, I get uncomfortable around people vaping because I have asthma and I feel concerned that it could affect my breathing. So I just decide not to participate in it. We should try not inhale anything else but clean fresh oxygen. 

Deciding as a teenager whether to vape or not

I’m not saying you cant vape or that you shouldn’t I am just trying to inform you the other side of this topic. I want teenagers to know what they are getting into before they actually do it, if you decide to vape thats your choice it’s your life but just make sure that you are responsible.
