Cottage cheese adds lightness and protein to these low-sugar, whole wheat pancakes.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp canola oil

Instructions

  • STIR flour with baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
  • WHIRL cottage cheese in a food processor until smooth. Whirl in eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla. Whirl in flour mixture until just combined.
  • HEAT an extra-large non-stick frying pan over medium. Brush with oil. Scoop a scant 1/4 cup batter into pan for each pancake; 3 or 4 will fit in the pan. Cook until bottoms have set, 1 to 2 min. Flip and cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 more min. Reduce heat if pancakes are browning. Remove to a platter. Cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat.
