I thought these were delicious and oh so light! This is a great way to get calcium and protein in at breakfast. I did end up thinning the cottage cheese batter with about a tablespoon of milk before folding in the egg whites. It made it easier to blend smoothly. I served mine with blueberry jam and a dusting of powdered sugar.

wow, these really were great pancakes, tho i didn't feel like the batter made for 4 servings, more like 2. it was a yummy dish all the same. i topped mine with fresh sliced strawberries in addition to strawberry preserves.
