Posted on November 7, 2015 by Deb Hart

Pancakes are not known for their awesome contribution to your daily protein goal—well, that’s all about to change. Give these cottage cheese pancakes and blueberry pancake recipes a try. Top with the fruit topping recipe in this month’s newsletter, sugar-free syrup or no-added-sugar preserves.

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Add more milk if necessary.
Lightly coat and large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray and pre-heat on medium. Once the pan has heated, pour batter into the pan to make 4 pancakes. Cook until the batter begins to look set and the bottom sides are golden brown. Flip and continue to cook on the second side. Makes 2 servings.
