Cottage Cheese Pancakes
Cottage cheese has been working overtime these past few months making its way into so many different recipes. While I personally enjoy it on its own with some crackers and avocado, I love using it in recipes as a way to pack in extra protein.
These cottage cheese pancakes are a delicious whole-grain option to fuel your morning that are easy to make, fluffy, and packed with protein.
The pancakes are made from oat flour, cottage cheese, eggs and maple syrup. If you’re skeptical about the cottage cheese, I can promise you won’t even taste it in this recipe.
It’s an easy way to add in fat and protein, while adding the ultimate fluffy texture.
