I know, sounds gross, right? I promise they are good! My husband, Colby, HATES cottage cheese with a searing passion, but he LOVES these. If you weren’t told they had cottage cheese in them, I swear you would never know! For years, my mom has been making Cottage Cheese Pancakes for us. It’s my FAVORITE pancake in the world, so I adapted the recipe to be gluten free!
The cottage cheese gives the pancakes a type of elasticity that I can’t even describe. You can’t get it anywhere else! What I really enjoy about this recipe is that it’s easy peasy & super healthy! My feeling is that the one downside to most breakfast food is that it’s usually high in sugar & carbs. Lets face it, some are practically desserts…but these thin, delicious, circles of goodness are packed with protein from the eggs & cottage cheese. The cottage cheese also serves you with the GOOD fatty acids. All in all a delicious, balanced breakfast.
I use an all purpose gluten free flour, but if you’re wanting to make them even more healthy, use a brown rice flour blend or a buckwheat flour blend for YOUR gluten free cottage cheese pancakes.
