Banana-Oats Cottage Cheese Pancakes

I really love pancakes!! Who doesn’t right? But I always try to find a way to make them healthy. The classic pancake recipe call for to much sugar and refined carbs, and that’s a No, NO in my house! Besides, since now I have a tiny human to nourish, I do my best to find healthy recipes and also share them, so we can all benefit!
Danny is heating more everyday, so this is a great way to add healthy foods into his diet in a fun way. We are responsible to teach our children that healthy food is not boring or insipid. Nowadays there’s too much package food consumption that has been the cause of the the obesity epidemic and we have to STOP IT. And we as moms must teach our children to eat healthy from an early age. Try to make these and you’ll see how delicious they are and your family will love them!
I found a recipe of cottage cheese pancakes and made some adjustments. I created my version of Banana-Oats Cottage Cheese Pancakes. These pancakes are healthy and are packed with protein and fiber, and are good for you and your kids. You can make a large batch and freeze them and then heat them in the toaster for breakfast. These taste like banana bread pancakes!!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats finely grounded or oatmeal flour
  • 1/2 medium banana
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 large egg
  • Optional to add: Fresh berries, chocolate chips, peanut butter

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Drain the cheese to remove excess water
  2. Mix the eggs and milk in a large bowl
  3. Add the cheese, then the flour as needed until you get a soft better
  4. Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray (I use coconut) and heat over medium low heat.
  5. Place about 1/4 cup for each pancake cup onto skillet.
  6. Cook until bubbles appear on top. Flip cakes and cook until golden brown.
  7. Wipe skillet clean and repeat with more cooking spray and remaining batter.
  8. Serve with your favourite fruits, honey or agave syrup

NOTES

If the pancakes are too thin, add in a tablespoon of more oats, if they are too thick, add in a teaspoon or two of milk.
Feel free to double recipe if making for more than one person.
Stay Active, Live Healthy and Feel Amazing!
