I think today was the first day it really felt like summer for me! It was really sunny and nice out and I went swimming! I also had a very exciting thing happen today while I was swimming! My dog Maria actually got in the pond to swim to me all on on her own… twice! This is a BIG first for her! I have been trying to train her to enjoy swimming since last summer! It was so cute! :-) Have any of you had and fun summer experiences yet this season???
Today I am going to share with you a really exciting recipe for Healthy Cottage Pancakes! They are delicious, yummy, and fluffy pancakes, but they are also low carb, high protein, and low points!! This is something that I thought would be impossible with pancakes!
Normal pancakes are so high in carbs, have very little protein, and are high in points. This is NOT ideal for a breakfast! Did you know starting out your day with protein actually helps your metabolism to run faster for the entire day?? It is so important to have a healthy breakfast! Normally, I would feel pretty guilty for eating pancakes for breakfast, but not with this recipe! You can totally eat these without any guilt for breakfast, even with a little bit of real maple syrup!! Here is the recipe!!
- 1 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- 6 eggs
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup spelt flour
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
Put the cottage cheese in a food processor and blend it until it is smooth. In a bowl, beat the eggs until they are light and fluffy. Add in the cottage cheese, baking soda, salt, and flour and mix until well combined. Heat a griddle to medium heat. Grease the griddle with the coconut oil and use it to cook the pancakes. Serve with fresh fruit and maple syrup. Enjoy!Serves: 8 (3 pancakes per serving), WW P+: 3 per serving (1 per pancake) I got the basis for this recipe from a really cool blog The Fountain Avenue Kitchen. I made some of my own changes to the recipe, but you can find the original here.
