cottage cheese pancakes.
Well this is ours.
I’m actually glad to put this recipe up because it means I don’t have to keep bugging my dad for it every time I want to make them but can’t recall the proportions. We love us some cottage cheese pancakes (and our love affair only deepened during the Atkins craze). I’m pretty sure I’ve eaten my weight in these delightful little pancakes over the years.
Light and crepe-like, you can top with virtually anything…lemon and powdered sugar, maple syrup, berries, sauteed bananas or apples, strawberry preserves. They are super kid-friendly and great for breakfast OR a quick dinner.
Cottage Cheese Pancakes
What You’ll Need:
1 1/4 cup lowfat cottage cheese ($1.24 at $1.99/2 cups)
4 eggs ($.48 at $.12 per)
4 egg whites ($.48 at $.12 per)
4 tablespoons butter, melted ($.36 at $.09/tablespoon)
8 tablespoons flour ($.12 at $.02/tablespoon)
Maple Syrup, berries, lemon/powdered sugar, sauteed apples or bananas, applesauce, etc.
OK, I hope this isn’t too complicated 😉
Whip up cottage cheese in a bowl (to make it less “cottage-y”).
Add eggs, melted butter and flour and mix thoroughily.
Liberally spray a non-stick griddle pan and heat for a minute or two, then add cottage cheese batter using a 1/4 cup for each pancake.
Flip over once the sides bubble. They’ll be all hot and oozy and you may need to refrain from eating them right off the pan.
Top with your favorite ingredients and then call my dad and tell him how much you loved them 😉
*Lighten it up – You can substitute whole wheat flour for the white flour to make it a bit healthier and can also use all egg whites as well.
