Looking for a way to add protein to your breakfast? Try these cottage cheese protein pancakes! Perfect for a healthy breakfast or a recovery meal after a workout.
This recipe should make about 16 small pancakes, for 4 servings of 4 pancakes each. Depending on the exact size of your eggs, it may make slightly more or less.
I usually use a large single serve blender cup for this recipe. If you only have a large traditional blender, you make need to add the oats to a food processor first to attain the correct flour-like consistency – then add that and all the other ingredients to your blender.
