Food on Fridays with Ann

I found instructions for making Oatmeal Cottage Cheese Pancakes here. It sounded simple and healthy, requiring only four ingredients:

  • ½ cup oatmeal
  • ½ cup cottage cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 egg whites

Intrigued by the simplicity, I decided to give them a whirl. Literally. I whirled them together in the blender and poured the mixture onto the griddle.They turned out a little flatter than our usual pancakes, but what an outstanding option for people seeking a gluten-free, high-protein breakfast alternative!They were quick to make, tasty, and filling.Here’s the recipe in one place, but it really is that simple:Oatmeal Cottage Cheese Pancakes

  • ½ cup oatmeal
  • ½ cup cottage cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 egg whites

Whir together the ingredients in a blender and pour onto a hot griddle coated with cooking spray. Top with your favorite pancake toppings and enjoy!

    1. This is such an interesting recipe – what a great way to make pancakes so much better for you, and they look delicious too. Thank you for hosting, Ann.

    2. Four ingredient pancakes. So easy! I’ll have to give those a try. (I like flat pancakes – so they’ll be right up my alley) Thanks for the idea, and thank for hosting.

    3. All into the blender and that is an excellent method to mix these up. Eggs awhile received a bad rap, so I would use two whole eggs instead of the whites. Instead of a bowl of oatmeal, this is a great way to enjoy oats differently. Jam or honey to top mine off. This is a must try!

    4. Well, heck, I can eat that!

    5. Great looking pancakes, and love that they are gluten free :-)

    6. We love oatmeal cottage cheese pancakes! They are super easy and healthy. I like to add cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice mix to change things up.

    7. I don’t know where the linky went!

      My apologies to participants–I’ll look into it.

    8. Thank you so much for sharing these delicious and nutritious pancakes with the Gallery of Favourites, Ann!
