I love cottage cheese pancakes and wanted to make a version that was a bit healthier and that my toddler would also love. This was a hit! (at least the two times I've made it so far!) You can use oil in place of the applesauce, white flour in place of the whole wheat, and regular milk for the soy, for a less healthier but yummy version. These also freeze well which is great for feeding a toddler.
- 1 cup low fat cottage cheese
- 4 eggs
- 3 tablespoons applesauce
- 1⁄2 cup soymilk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- Blend the cottage cheese, eggs, applesauce, soy milk, and vanilla extract in a blender until thoroughly mixed.
- Add the dry ingredients and pulse on and off until just blended.
- Heat pan on medium. Coat with butter or oil spray. Pour by 1/8 cupfuls (nice small size for toddlers and kids, otherwise use 1/4 cup). Flip when nicely browned.
- Serve with a sprinkle of powdered sugar, maple syrup, or jam.
These pancakes were so good! I used white whole wheat flour and the milk option and they turned out tender and fluffy. What a great way to use up cottage cheese and get your protien in your breakfast!! Will make again and again. Thank you.
These are new favorite breakfast staple! I rarely made pancakes b/c the lack of nutrition in them - but my kids love them. These taste yummier than any other pancake I've had, plus they've got good protein and whole wheat! I used Splenda in place of sugar, and added a little nutmeg and vanilla. Don't even need toppings, they're so good, but we like to eat them with natural jam or peanut butter. Sometimes I simmer some fresh or frozen strawberries on the stove for a nice sweet sauce. Also, great for the freezer! I always make a double or triple batch and wrap individual 2-pancake servings in plastic wrap, and then I throw them all into a freezer bag. This way on busy mornings I can pull as many as I need out and pop them in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
These were VERY GOOD! I made the following changes: Egg Beaters instead of eggs and skim milk instead of soy milk. I had planned to serve them with butter & maple syrup, but my kids liked them plain! The only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is that personally, I like fluffy pancakes and these had a more crepe-like texture....very thin. Thanks for sharing!
