Who doesn’t like pancakes for breakfast? Or at any other time of the day? With these protein filled Low Carb Cottage Cheese Pancakes, you can enjoy America’s favorite breakfast without the guilty conscience.
A serving only has 200 calories with 27 gram protein, 18 gram carbs, and 1 gram fat, so I am serious when I say that these pancakes are healthy. Not just “better than regular pancakes” but actually a healthy breakfast you could eat every day. It’s one of the recipes I always fall back on when I want an easy, healthy, and tasty breakfast
Low Carb Cottage Cheese Pancakes are a great fitness recipe
Cottage cheese and egg whites are great sources of protein and the oats provide the slow-digesting carbs you need to keep your energy levels up until your next meal. We mostly make Low Carb Cottage Cheese Pancakes for breakfast, but you can also use them as an after workout snack. They are great cold, so you can easily just wrap them up and bring them along to the gym or to work.
If you want to add a little sweetness (or turn them into a delicious desert), put some sugar-free jam on the pancakes and perhaps some fresh berries. Or you can add a spoonful of peanut butter to get some healthy fat.
They taste just like regular thin pancakes (crepes), so if you don’t tell your kids that they are healthy, they will love them too 😀
Easy Cottage Cheese Pancakes
This recipe is just as easy as a regular pancake recipe. Just blend everything to a smooth consistency to get a batter that looks just like normal pancake batter. Easy peasy.
If you want the pancakes to have more bite and be a little thinker, chop the oats by hand and whisk everything together instead of blending. This gives you a pancake that feels slightly denser and more filling.
If you are in the mood for an even thicker pancake that is just as healthy and delicious, try our Protein Pancakes.
