Cottage Cheese Pancakes have been a staple in our home for as long as I can remember. I made them for my girls when they were little and my sister (who shared the recipe with me) made it for her girls. These pancakes are packed with protein, they are light and delicious, and easy to make. Be prepared because the first time you make them won’t be the last!

This is what you will need…

  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tbsp. flour
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 heaping cup cottage cheese
  1. Whisk eggs
  2. Add flour to eggs, whisking until the egg /flour mixture is smooth.
  3. Add the 2 tbsp. melted butter and vanilla and continue whisking
  4. Spoon the cottage cheese into the egg mixture and mix well
  5. Heat a non-stick griddle pan over medium heat. Lightly spray Pam or melt additional butter and then spoon batter onto your pan. Cook pancakes until they are golden about two to three minutes per side.
  6. To keep them warm, I place a platter into the oven on a low temperature.

My cottage cheese preference is a brand called Friendship. I absolutely love this brand. There is something about the taste and texture of this cottage cheese… it’s creamy without being too watery. I also like using the whole milk variety because I find it more satisfying over the lighter ones.

This recipe made about 12 relatively large pancakes, which I served with maple syrup, bacon and freshly squeezed orange juice. This breakfast just couldn’t be beat.

The girls may be all grown up now, but when they are home they still ask me to make cottage cheese pancakes. I guess there is something to be said about the wholesome taste of these gems.
