Fluffy Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Ready to start you day with some super easy Cottage Cheese Pancakes? These pancakes are packed with great macros and guess what!? You don’t need protein powder to make them!

Since we’re using cottage cheese for this one and you probably don’t want that texture in your pancakes you’ll need either a blender or food processor.

The best part about using a blender or food processor? It makes the recipe WAY quicker in just a few steps!

The worst part? Cleaning your appliance (tip for this at the end)!

3 Steps

Step 1. Add in 3/4 cup of cottage cheese, 2 large eggs, 2 large egg whites, 1 tablespoon of your favorite sweetener (I prefer erythritol here), 1/2 cup of coconut flour, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.

Don’t like or don’t have coconut flour? Don’t worry, any flour should work! I do like the taste of the coconut flour in these.

Before we jump into the next step of these cottage cheese pancakes you should know that you can easily change up the flavor or macros of these.

How? By adding in things like cocoa powder, peanut or other nut butter, protein powder, ground cinnamon, and so on. Experiment with them when you get bored!

Step 2. Blend or process everything together. Your pancake mix should look “smooth” before continuing. Pretty easy so far, right?

Step 3. Throw a pan on medium heat, coat it with non-stick cooking spray, and make your pancakes however big you want them. You should cook each side for 1-2 minutes.

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

There you go! I topped my cottage cheese pancakes with a little whipped cream and some sugar free syrup.

Tip for cleaning your food processor or blender? Add some a little soap and water into it after you’re done and give it a couple pulses!

Once you try these you have to try our Cauliflower Protein Pancakes next!

    I made a double batch of these but didn’t have enough coconut flour, so I made up the missing amount in vanilla protein powder. They tasted really great, but there certainly weren’t as fluffy as yours.

    I made these this morning for breakfast how do you get your so fluffy?

      Did you use enough baking powder? Mixing for a bit longer could help you too!
