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!
For this one since we’re using cottage cheese and you probably don’t want that texture in your pancakes so take out a blender or food processor. After that these cottage cheese pancakes really only have a few 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, 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 but I do like the taste of the coconut flour in these.
Before we jump into the next step of these 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 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.
I think we covered everything for these delicious cottage cheese pancakes. The whole recipe maybe takes 10 minutes!
Once you try these you have to try our Cauliflower Protein Pancakes next!
