Blueberry, ricotta and chia seeds pancakes

Ingredients for about 12 pancakes:

250 ml milk
3 eggs, separated- yolks and egg whites
100 g flour
30 g oats
1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional- just use 20 more grams of oats instead)
1 tablespoon flax meal (optional, you can use also almonds)
1 teaspoon vanilla paste (optional)
1 teaspoon baking powder
150 g ricotta
125 g blueberries

How it's made :

1. Mix the egg yolks, the milk, the flour, the oats, the chia seeds, the flaxmeal  and the baking powder in 1 bowl and let it rest for at least 15 minutes.
2. Beat the egg whites to soft peaks.
3. Fold in the batter the egg whites, carefully so you don't loose all the air trapped in the egg whites.
4. Fold in the ricotta in.
5. Pour the batter in a hot, buttered pan, forming small disks of about 12 cm diameter. Press in the blueberries, so you get the result seen the pictures. Turn on the other side when you see bubbles forming.

Pour some maple syrup on and enjoy!
