Cottage Cheese Pancakes

I got a big tub of cottage cheese with the intent of making some chicken breast stuffed with cottage cheese, mushrooms, and spinach; I made them before and they were delicious!

However, I took a completely different turn and made cottage cheese pancakes instead lol. Talk about a complete 180.

No regrets, for they were delicious and low-calorie 🙂

Most of the recipes I found online called for oats blended with the cottage cheese and eggs. I don’t have a mixer nor a blender so I opted for white whole wheat flour instead.

I used 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour, 1 cup cottage cheese, 3 eggs, and 2 tbsp vegetable oil.Here are the directions for anyone interested:

Combine cottage cheese, flour, eggs, and vegetable oil in a bowl. Heat a large pan over medium heat, coat with 1/2 tbsp butter. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan, and cook until bubbles appear. Flip and cook the other side until brown. Makes about 10 pancakes.

The cottage cheese taste is not very pronounced. It’s more eggy than anything.I plugged in the ingredient list onto a calorie counter site, and the calorie count for each pancake is only 83 cals with 5.2g of protein. That’s quite good!

The kiwi, powdered sugar, and sugar-free maple syrup are not included in the calorie count.
