It’s been a pretty long time since I’ve blogged a recipe, but this one was so good I couldn’t resist sharing! One of my photographer friends shared it on her personal Facebook page a week or so ago and once I could chew again (I got my wisdom teeth out on the 11th) I decided to try out her recipe!
I’ve been focusing more and more on trying to incorporate foods that are full of protein into my every day diet and these pancakes are such a nice treat that I can feel good about eating, since they’re packed with cottage cheese! They’re also sweet enough that you don’t really need any syrup, which is a plus since syrup adds like a million grams of sugar. Okay, I exaggerate, but I hate the stickiness of maple syrup, so avoiding it is no big deal to me.
One thing to note about these pancakes is, they are REALLY thin, but what can you expect from a 102 calorie pancake? I ate three of them along with some chicken breakfast sausages and was full for hours!

Here’s how to make them!
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup all purpose flour (I measure mine by weighing on a scale for accuracy)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla (I chose madagascar bourbon vanilla!)
Makes 12 servings
Use a blender or immersion blender mix all of your wet ingredients first, then incorporate the flour. Prepare on a hot griddle or frying pan. I sprinkled a few mini chocolate chips into half of the pancakes once they hit the pan and felt like a genius! We topped our pancakes with whipped cream and strawberry slices.
