Breakfast of Champions for the Long Weekend

How excited is everyone as the long weekend nears? With the recent amount of precipitation we have gotten, I know many individuals whose cottage is affected. If you are planning to head up to your cottage and/or a cottage this weekend, make these pancakes. They are protein packed, delicious and simple to make.

I find many individuals have a love hate relationship with cottage cheese. I must admit, I am not a cottage cheese lover but when hidden in these pancakes, I become an instant cottage cheese lover. Try this recipe out and let me know what you think. 🙂




1/2 cup  old-fashioned rolled oats

1/2 medium banana

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 egg

1/4 cup 2% cottage cheese

1-2 tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Optional add-ins:

Fresh berries, chocolate chips, peanut butter


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until completely smooth, about 30 seconds.

Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with butter or cooking spray and heat over medium low heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cup onto skillet. Add desired toppings such as chocolate chips or blueberries. Cook until bubbles appear on top. Flip cakes and cook until golden brown on underside. Wipe skillet clean and repeat with more cooking spray and remaining batter.
