Healthy Cottage Pancakes | Simply Scrumptious by SarahI 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!!

Ingredients:

  • 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

Instructions:

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.
