Strawberry Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

This past week I found a higher protein pancake recipe that sounded delicious. I modified for a clean eating lifestyle — increasing whole grains, lowering sugar and fat. Plus, I made it easier due to my laziness and hatred of all things kitchen. It's definitely not as full of gourmet loveliness, but it still passed the family taste test!
