Course: Breakfast/ Brunch
Servings: 8 pancakes
Author: Countryside Cravings
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup (240g) cottage cheese (low fat or full fat is fine)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup (70g) all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  1. Heat a large griddle over medium low heat.  (I even use low heat because they can burn easily on higher heat and the middle left undone)

  2. In a large bowl combine eggs, cottage cheese, honey, and vanilla.  Add the flour and baking powder and mix just until combined.  Pour 1/4 cupfuls onto preheated and lightly greased griddle.  Cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden.  

Recipe Notes
  1. Recipe adapted from Weelicious.
  2. If you would like to make these gluten-free use 3/4 cup of old-fashioned oats and grind them in a blender to make 1/2 cup oat flour.  Grind them until it resembles flour.  
  3. You can also make the entire recipe in a blender if you prefer.  Just put everything into your blender and blend just until combined.  
  4. You can also substitute with whole wheat flour.  Just use a little less and they will be a little denser but they still tasted great.   
  5. Make ahead option:  Stack cooled pancakes with a piece of parchment paper in between each.  Place in a ziploc bag or freezer safe container and freeze for up to 3 months.  Reheat in the toaster or let them thaw and reheat in the microwave. 
  6. Serving suggestions:

    2. Fresh fruit
    3. Creamy Key Lime Fruit Salad
    4. Scrambled eggs
