Cottage Cheese Pancakes are filled with natural protein! This breakfast meal will keep you satisfied for hours!
Cottage cheese in pancakes? I know, it doesn’t sound very appealing, but before you decide that no one in your family will touch them, hear me out. I test tested these a couple of times without telling anyone that there was a secret ingredient added to it, the cottage cheese! I’m sneaky like that. If I want to introduce healthier versions of our favorite recipes, I slowly introduce my changes and just observe reactions, tweaking as needed.
For the first batch, I used all purpose flour for the base with the cottage cheese, and they were quickly gobbled up. For the second batch, I adjusted the flour by substituting 1/4 cup of the flour for oat bran, and got the same reaction, happy bellies! These pancakes are moist and tender. The added protein is a bonus!
All you need to do is put all the ingredients in a blender and whip it all together until the cottage cheese curds turns into a smooth batter.
These pancakes will leave you feeling satisfied for hours! I kid not.

I do like cottage cheese pancakes and have made many recipes. Don’t hate me that I really didn’t like these. Blending the batter removes the sensation of even knowing cottage cheese is involved other than the moistness. You also have to really, really like vanilla to have that much in them. Basically they tasted like vanilla pancakes. Not my cup of tea.
I’m just so thrilled that I wasn’t hungry a half hour after eating pancakes!

Yay! I can follow you on Facebook! 🙂
Would we still be friends if I told you I hate cottage cheese? Like HATE. I believe it works in pancakes though. You might have persuaded me to buy it, if only as a vehicle for blackberries!
I’m not a big fan either. I wish I could have taste tested on you because I bet you will like them!! If you like buttermilk pancakes, blended cc (don’t want to spell it to lesson the visual 😉 ) is similar! Pinky swear!
I’ve been making cottage cheese pancakes for years and years. They are fabulous. I make them with bisquick, eggs, cottage cheese, milk, vanilla, soda and sugar. Yummmmmmm. Everyone loves them.
I can’t believe I’m just learning about cottage cheese pancakes! It’s been a hidden secret 🙂 They are wonderful!
I love all the delicious fruit on top. I bet these pancakes are so moist and delicious you don’t even need syrup.
You are absolutely correct, no syrup needed. Fresh fruit has enough natural sugar for me!
