Almond, Fig and Ricotta Pancakes


This unique take on the traditional breakfast favourite is unreal!
Perfect for breakfast or as a sweet snack.



  1. Combine almond meal, vanilla, egg, rice flour and baking power in a bowl.
  2. Add almond milk gradually, until batter is a runny consistency.
  3. Fold in ricotta. Set aside.
  4. Cut figs into quarters and place in baking dish. Drizzle with maple syrup & sprinkle with cinnamon. Place under grill (moderate heat) or in preheated moderate oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden and softened.

  6. Repeat with remaining mixture.
