Sometimes you just need a big pile of pancakes and these healthy wild blueberry cottage cheese pancakes will fill your belly but not your waistline.
Growing up I was pretty die hard french toast. My Uncle Richard taught me to do maple syrup, homemade of course and then a dusting of powdered sugar which is probably why I ended up with a few cavities but I forgive him. 😉 Once Cade and I got married we started experimenting with breakfast recipes and ended up with our Saturday morning hot breakfast tradition.
Most often it’s crepes, Cade’s nutella crepes to be exact but we also love our melt in your mouth buttermilk pancakes recipe that you’ll see by the comments, it’s the best in the entire world. Seriously.
The problem is, I don’t want to always be packing in the calories with heavier breakfasts so with all of this cottage cheese pancake craze I set out to make a healthier pancake.
We pulse oats in a blender to make our flour. Then you just add in everything but the fruit and blend away!
We chose to use the low fat cottage cheese and don’t notice any difference in flavor at all. It’s got great protein, light, and those wild berries take it from delicious to farm to table fresh deliciousness! That’s a mouthful. Awkward.
