I love this recipe! I have been making these pancakes for over 6 years now and have never looked back. This is my personal adaptation of a couple of recipes. Try it out – I guarantee you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup low-fat (1%) cottage cheese
8 egg whites (or 1 cup of liquid egg whites)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Process the oatmeal, cottage cheese, egg whites, vanilla extract and cinnamon in a blender until smooth.
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat for approximately 2 minutes. Spray skillet with cooking spray, or melt a scant amount of Olivina* brand margarine into the skillet. Add the batter and cook over medium heat. Cook on one side until lightly browned, flip over and brown the other side.
Extras: Add blueberries or dark chocolate chips to the batter before cooking. Yum!
Serve with pure maple syrup or low sugar fruit compote.
