Are you stuck in a rut with breakfast, eating the same thing every day? (I’m guilty, too!) Let’s be honest….oatmeal every single day gets a little monotonous. Well, I’ve got the perfect way to change up your routine and it’s far from boring!

These Cottage Cheese Pancakes freeze well, are quick and easy, and they’re full of protein (16g per serving, to be exact)! I love some of the high protein pancake mixes available at the grocery store these days, but dang they’re SO pricy. These pancakes have even more protein and are super inexpensive to make. WIN WIN!

Ingredients Needed

  • Cottage Cheese – 1% or 4% will work – This recipe is great if you have lots of cottage cheese to use up!
  • Eggs – I always use “large” eggs
  • Flour
  • Salt
  • Vanilla
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Baking Soda
  • Vegetable Oil – Or melted butter
  • Milk

How to Make Cottage Cheese Pancakes

This is my favorite part of the recipe, because it’s EASY!! You’ll literally just dump all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth…..easy right?! You will want to run a rubber spatula around the outside edges of the blender to make sure all the dry ingredients get combined!

The rest of the recipe is just like any pancake. Simply grease the griddle, pour some batter onto the hot pan and cook until bubbly. Once it’s bubbly, flip and cook until golden brown.

How to Serve Cottage Cheese Pancakes

I like to serve these pancakes warm with maple syrup and a side of fresh fruit. You could also top with a fruit syrup, powdered sugar or a pile of mixed berries!
