My mom gave me this recipe and I’ve been making it for my family ever since! We LOVE pancakes at our house, but all the carbs and sugar are not the best for anyones waistline 🙂 These protein pancakes are AMAZING! They have the same great light and fluffy-ness of regular pancakes but they have no flour, canola oil, sugar or butter! They’re packed with protein rich ingredients as well, so I can feel good giving them to my family, and they make us feel full longer. (And as a side note, my husband loathes cottage cheese, but he really likes these pancakes!)
- 1 1/3 cup whole grain oats
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- dash of cinnamon
Add oats and baking powder to a food processor or blender and blend until they're as fine as flour. Remove to a bowl.
Add the cottage cheese, eggs, water, vanilla, oil and cinnamon to the blender and blend until smooth. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and pour onto a hot griddle spray with non-stick cooking spray. Cook on one side until bubbles begin to appear on the surface of the pancake. Flip and cook on the other side.
