Pancakes are for sure one of my favourite breakfast foods, especially when topped with fresh maple syrup! Pancakes are so good, but often leave us feeling sick afterwards because of all the sugar and flour. Here’s a recipe that will satisfy, and leaves us feeling good. I got the original idea from this recipe book, but have changed a few things around to fit my tastes.
1 cup old fashioned or quick oats
1 cup (or about 4) eggs
1 cup cottage cheese
2-3 tsp baking powder
generous dash of vanilla
Using a blender, grind together the oats and baking powder until powdery. Dump that into a bowl, and the blend the cottage cheese. Use a spatula to scoop the cottage cheese into the bowl as well, then blend the eggs and vanilla. Mix all ingredients together well with a whisk, and you have your batter.
This pancake mix is quite thick, so you can mix in some milk to thin it out. Cook on a greased griddle or pan as you usually would.
This recipe makes enough pancakes for about 2-3 people, but I often multiply it up to 6 times depending on how many people are eating. Start by making a regular batch to get a feel for how much you get, then go on to experiment around.
Enjoy, and feel good!
