- ½ cup low-fat cottage cheese
- ¼ cup oats
- ⅓ cup egg Whites (2 egg whites)
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp. Stevia in the raw (only if you want the pancakes to be sweet)
Pour the cottage cheese and egg whites into the blender first, then add the oats, vanilla extract, and a little stevia.
Blend the ingredients until you reach a smooth consistency.
Spray a pan with a little cooking spray, then place over medium heat.
Once the pan is heated, add the batter. Batter will yield 1-2 large pancakes or 3 smaller pancakes depending on how much you add.
Fry each pancake until golden on both sides.
Serve with berries, sugar-free jam or peanut butter.
This recipe is for 1 serving. Depending on the size of the pancakes, it will yield 1-2 large pancakes or 3-4 smaller pancakes.
Feel free to add any healthy toppings you like! A few of our favorites include sugar-free syrup, sugar-free jam and sliced berries, or a few spoonfuls of peanut butter.
For thicker pancakes with a little more texture, try chopping the oats by hand and whisking the ingredients instead of blending them.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can reheat gently in a pan or enjoy them cold.
