3 Ingredients to Breakfast Bliss

What do these three ingredients have in common?

Cottage cheese (bleghhhhhh), eggs, and oatmeal?

Despite being super healthy and good for your body, these three ingredients have one MAJOR thing in common.

A big ole plate of PURE breakfast bliss, that’s what.

I hope you are as excited as I am Open-mouthed smile

Thank you to Jessica from Warfield Ninjas for sharing with me one of the simplest yet tastiest belly pleasing recipes I’ve tried in a while!

For two good sized pancakes (similar in size to a toaster waffle), you’ll need to combine the following in a food processor:

  • 1/3 cup uncooked oats (I used quick oats)
  • 1/3 cottage cheese (I used fat free)
  • 2 egg whites

Give all the goods a quick buzz in the food processor until the lumps are gone, and cook them up like you would “normal” pancakes!

get. in. my. bellllllllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

I was feeling a little OVER THE TOP, so I decided to top mine off with some all-natural peanut butter, Dannon Vanilla Greek yogurt, strawberries, AND Smuckers sugar free syrup.

Feel free to use the toppings of your choice.  To each her own pancake, I always say Smile

I made a smaller version of these for my mom over the holiday weekend, and she said they were surprisingly tasty and that she appreciated the “healthy and hearty” texture of the pancakes.  I completely agree!

  1. MMMMM that looks so good…I have all the ingredient, except the cottage cheese. Going shopping today and buy some. I’m making the pancakes for breakfast tomorrow. 80)

  2. Such beautiful pics! Can’t wait to see all your variations! And I really appreciate the fact that you give the nutritional stats as well.

    1. I DESPISE cottage cheese, but really like these. They didn’t taste like cottage cheese to me, and once you get the lumps out you really can’t tell the cc is even in there! In one batch I added cinnamon and a little vanilla extract, and that was tasty too.

  3. Every time I see pancakes I instantly drool and crave them. I don’t know if it’s because pancakes rock or if it’s because I love having an excuse to use maple syrup.

  4. Hi Mary, I just came across your blog (and love it)! These pancakes look so good. I haven’t eaten dairy in a while (not for an ideological reason lol, I just haven’t bought it) and you’re making me want to give cottage cheese another shot. Great post!

  5. OMG this is so easy and I have to try this! I’m obsessed with pancakes and trying new recipes plus I’m one of the few people that loves cottage cheese. This is great!

  6. Wow! This is the healthiest recipe of pancakes I have seen..Since I am a savoury person, I’ll have some mushrooms and tomatoes as a topping…can’t wait to make these…This will be our breakfast tomorrow…Thanks for sharing..

  7. Found your blog last week! Love your blog. I have just started really focusing on eating healthy and watching the amount of calories I eat. I made these pancakes today and they were so filling and yummy. I dipped them in Natures Hollow sugar free maple syrup sweetened with xylitol. Super delicious! Thanks for your blog and great ideas!
