Cottage Cheese Pancake Recipe | Easy, Healthy and Protein Packed

Cottage Cheese Pancake Recipe

I love to treat my family to pancakes, but typical carb filled pancakes do not settle well with me and I end up hungry soon after. I had resorted to only taking a bite or two until I found these Cottage Cheese pancakes. These are higher in protein, fill me quickly and keep me full!

If you don’t really like cottage cheese, it’s ok! My kids had no idea these were not the regular pancakes I usually serve them. Ethan even asked for seconds.

    You’d never tell by looking at them they had cottage cheese in them. They look wonderful and I am a big fan of cottage cheese anyway. They look great Heather! Thanks for sharing!

    I just made pancakes this am, and just like you after a few bites I was full, but I know Ill be hungry again in a little while. I want to try this recipe- it seems hard to believe those ingredients could make pancakes but Id be willing to try them!!

    Do you think you could use almond flour instead of the oatmeal? I want to make them sooner rather than later & I dont have any oatmeal in the house.

    Wow, these sound delicious! And I love that they’re a bit more healthy, too. I just recently started cooking with coconut oil (mostly stir-fries and the like), but I never would have thought to use it in something like pancakes. Thanks for sharing!

    These are very healthy and delicious pancakes made with very good organic ingredients. I love having pancakes with my family for breakfast and this is a really good recipe!

  10. When I first read this I was like um cottage cheese? But then realized hmm protein instead of total carbs. Nice. I know people use cottage cheese for cheesecakes and such, so it can be sweetened up. Very nice recipe here that I just might have to try out. I love that it uses oatmeal and coconut oil. Nice healthy alternative. Love it! Looks simple too.

  27. Carole ingram says

    I have a recipe that is very similar to this and it’s actually quite delicious, I prefer the cottage cheese pancakes over the regular pancakes, more protein and they don’t require as much syrup since it doesn’t soak it all up like regular pancakes do.
