The Best Fluffy COTTAGE CHEESE Pancakes

Cottage Cheese Pancakes Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

Rather than talk about my absence, let’s just go for action and start it off with some super easy Cottage Cheese Pancakes that are packed with great macros and guess what? You don’t need protein powder to make them!

For this one since we’re using cottage cheese and you probably don’t want that texture in your pancakes…take out a blender or food processor and after that we really only have 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), 1/2 cup of coconut flour (any flour should work though I do like the taste of the coconut flour in these), 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.

Now before we jump into the next step you can easily change up the flavor or macros of these by adding in things like cocoa powder, peanut or other nut butter, protein powder, ground cinnamon, and so on!

Step 2. Blend or process everything together…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.

I think we covered everything. The whole recipe maybe takes 10 minutes!

  • 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.
