Recipe: Cottage Cheese Griddle Cakes

At Safeway this week, I hit the mother load when it came to the ingredients for these. Organic eggs and cottage cheese were both 1/2 off on the manager’s special!

My family prefers these to regular pancakes. Because of the cottage cheese, they are more protein dense then a regular pancake – meaning they fill you up for a longer period of time.

I’ve mentioned several times, I am not a cottage cheese fan. However, in these griddle cakes, I love the creamy texture they add!

Cottage Cheese Griddle Cakes

1 C white whole wheat flour

1/2 t baking soda

1/4 t salt

2 T sugar

4 eggs

1 C lowfat cottage cheese

1/2 C vanillla almond milk

2 T canola oil

Mix flour, soda and salt together in a large bowl. In a medium bowl whisk eggs, cottage cheese, almond milk and oil. Add wet ingredients to dry and whisk together.

Drop by 1/4 cupfuls onto a griddle preheated to 300 degrees. When bubbles form in the middle, flip.

Serve hot with real maple syrup and fruit of your choice. Also good served with homemade preserves and a sprinkling of powdered sugar.
