Cottage Cheese Pancake Recipe:

What makes a cottage cheese pancake special?  They are a thin pancake with a light, spongy texture.

Cottage Cheese adds a nice kick of protein which helps keep you fuller for longer. Plus, the cottage cheese in these 4 ingredient pancakes replace the need for any fat or oil.  That’s a win for your waist-line.

Don’t worry, the cottage cheese is pretty much invisible.  Blending up the batter in a blender gets rid of any cottage cheese lumps, and the cottage cheese flavor is undetectable.

The original recipe author from my Quailtown Cook Book says that this batter can be made ahead and refrigerated for 3-4 days.  She also notes that this cottage cheese batter works great for waffles too.

These super easy and delicious thin pancakes can be rolled up like a taco or folded like a crepe.  So instead of just grabbing for maple syrup, think outside the box and eat them with your favorite filling. However, if the family is demanding syrup and you are all out, try our easy pancake syrup recipe.

What can I put on pancakes besides maple syrup?

  • Peanut Butter
