These healthy Pancakes with Oatmeal and Cottage Cheese are fluffy, tasty, and filling! The best part? It only calls for four ingredients.
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! While we usually eat the same thing almost every day, I’d like to mix it up a bit from time to time, especially on weekends.
For the past weeks, I’ve gotten accustomed to starting the weekend with pancakes.
Of all the pancake concoctions I made, these Oatmeal and Cottage Cheese Pancakes are our favorite!
They’re super easy to make (no need to pull out an extensive list of ingredients), filling, and they’re highly customizable!
What you need to make these healthy oatmeal and cottage cheese pancakes
These cottage cheese pancakes only call for the following ingredients:
- Oat flour
You can simply make your own by placing old-fashioned rolled oats in a blender. Blend it using the highest setting until it turns into a powder. If you’re sensitive to gluten, you may use these oats.
- Cottage cheese
We like using Breakstone 2% Milkfat cottage cheese. You may opt for the full fat variety if it fits your macros.
You will need large eggs for this recipe for added fluffiness and flavor. You may use liquid eggs if you don’t have regular eggs. The recipe video below makes use of liquid eggs.
- Unsweetened soymilk
Only a small amount of soymilk is needed to help loosen the batter. If you’re using liquid eggs, you may opt out of this.
- Optional mix-ins: fruits and/or sweetener of choice
This pancake recipe isn’t as sweet as store-bought pancake mixes. To add sweetness to these pancakes, you may add your favorite fruit (I love adding blueberries on these!) and/or sweetener of your choice.
Before serving, I add a teaspoon or two of unsalted butter and drizzle them with honey (yum!).
How to make these oatmeal and cottage cheese pancakes
Step 1. In one bowl, add the oat flour, cottage cheese, eggs, and soy milk (if you’re using liquid eggs, you may skip the soy milk). Mix well until everything is well-incorporated.
If you’re mixing fruits and/or additional sweetener, add it into the mixture.
Step 2. Heat a medium-sized pan with about a teaspoon of oil or butter.
Step 3. Once the pan is hot enough, spoon about 3 tablespoons of the batter.
Step 4. Flip once you start seeing bubbles or holes.
Step 5. Serve warm with butter and your favorite pancake syrup.
