There’s nothing better than pancakes on a Sunday morning and somehow they taste even better when they’re HEALTHY! I stumbled on this recipe several years ago from a creative blogger turned author Brokeass Gourmet.  They are healthy but they are absolutely fluffy, tangy, with a touch of sweetness.

Ingredients:

  • 1 C. cottage cheese 
  • 2 eggs or 4 egg whites 
  • 2 tsp honey 
  • 1 cup raw rolled quick cook oats (do not use steel cut)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • vegetable oil or cooking spray 
Directions:

Combine cottage cheese, eggs, vanilla, and honey together in a blender or food processor and puree until creamy. Add the oats, cinnamon, baking powder and salt and puree until mixture is smooth and resembles slightly grainy pancake batter.

Heat a very light coating of oil or spray in a nonstick frying pan or griddle over medium-high heat and cook 1/4 cup of the batter until golden brown on one side (about 1 1/2 – 2 minutes). Flip, using a spatula and cook until the other side is golden brown. Repeat until all pancakes are cooked.

Serve, warm, with fruit, honey, a touch of butter, preserves and/or syrup.

Makes about 5 pancakes (serves 2-3).
