Great For Kids Pancake!

Recently, a co-worker suggested cottage cheese pancakes to me for the kids. I know it may not sound good but as we tell our kids, “Don’t knock it, until you try it!”. My co-worker’s kids are adults now and he says they still request these when they are home visiting.

I was skeptical, at first, but we struggle getting our daughter, Lily, to eat protein. Her protein sources are limited to yogurt, cheese, and peanut butter, so we are always looking for good options. I decided to give these pancakes a try since they have cottage cheese and eggs – both great sources of protein that I can’t see her eating straight.

Believe it or not, these are not only a hit with our daughter, but with the whole family. Lily gets so excited she can’t wait to eat! While I was trying to take a picture of the pancakes, she leaned over and snatched one in the middle of the shot (she is usually standing in a chair next to me helping me measure and mix).

What’s even better is they are quick and easy!!

Ingredients:

4 eggs
1 c. cottage cheese
1/8 tsp salt
2 Tbsp oil
1/2 c. flour (sift, then measure)
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
(Favorite topping)

Combine all ingredients (other than topping) in blender and mix until smooth. Grease griddle, turn heat to medium. Drop mixture by 1/4 cup measure onto hot griddle. Turn once and serve.

They are great because they are low in sugar, high in protein and you can mix a batch and keep it in the fridge to use throughout the week!

I’ll serve these plain, with blueberries, bananas and if I want to spoil the kids chocolate chips!

Do you have a family favorite pancake recipe to share? If you try this, let me know what you think!!!

Enjoy!!

    These look terrific and I’m thinking they would be low-carb if I use almond flour. Lily is adorable too. Thanks…I’m pinning them for future use.

      Thanks Renee!! I think almond flour Is a great suggestion! That would make these even more low carb and tasty! Thanks for visiting and for pinning the pancakes!! I greatly appreciate it!

    Glad everyone is enjoying the pancakes. I forwarded the links of Almeda’s recipe to our kids. Our daughter, Emily immediately replied that “they ought to be famous!” And Nathan always made them for his house mates in college.

    And yes, don’t tell the picky eaters about the cottage cheese until they are done. Emily made the mistake of telling her husband ahead of time and still can’t get him to try them :-(

      Gayle, I used plain flour. If the pancakes are too watery then I would suggest adding another tsp of flour until you reach the consistency you desire. Hope that helps but I’d love to hear if it didn’t so I can let others know!! Thanks for your question and for visiting the blog!!

    I just made these for my husband and we both loved them! Next time I’m going to try 2 small adjustments by omitting the sugar from the batter (we don’t need it with a sweet topping) and adding a tablespoon or 2 of milk. The cottage cheese I had on hand is VERY thick and another brand might not need the addition of milk. Darling pic of your daughter! I agree with her – these are great!

      Deb,

      Thanks so much for the feedback!! I love to hear from those that have tried them and have suggestions! I think that sounds like a great idea for modifications. I’ve questioned the sugar myself and considered a substitute but maybe I’ll eliminate it as well! I’m so thrilled to hear you enjoyed them!!
