Why You’ll Love High Protein Cottage Cheese Oat Pancakes

Pancakes are a breakfast staple. These cottage cheese oat pancakes have the texture and flavor of regular pancakes, yet are high in protein. No need to use protein powder as the cottage cheese, egg whites, and eggs provide plenty of protein.

One serving is 5 pancakes, which has 333 calories, 31.5 g protein, 30 g carbs, 4 g fiber, and 10.5 g fat. You get a well-balanced breakfast that will keep you full and satisfied. Top with fruit for even more flavor and fiber. I love to heat up frozen mixed berries and mash them to make a syrup to pour over top.

Ingredients

  • Oats: acts as the flour and provides fiber and some protein.
  • Cottage cheese: provides protein.
  • Egg whites: provides protein.
  • Eggs: provides protein and good source of several nutrients including iron, choline, and vitamins A, D, E, B12, and folate
  • Baking powder: makes the pancakes light and airy.
  • Vanilla extract and cinnamon: add flavor.

Let batter sit for a few minutes to thicken up. Then, heat a nonstick pan over medium heat and spray with oil. Use a ¼ measuring cup to pour batter onto pan. Cook in batches to allow space between pancakes. Cook for about 3 minutes or until edges form and you see bubbles on the side of the pancakes. Then, flip pancakes and cook for another 3 minutes or until pancakes are golden brown. Remove pancakes. Spray pan with oil and repeat until all batter is cooked.

Add Toppings

Toppings add more flavor and nutrients to your pancakes. Here are some of my favorites:

  • Heat up frozen mixed berries, mash, and pour over pancakes like a syrup.
  • Greek yogurt mixed with cinnamon and top with berries.
  • Heat up diced apple with cinnamon.
  • Peanut butter and banana.

Tips

  • Use a good nonstick pan or the pancakes will stick and get messy.
  • Pancakes are ready to flip when edges form and you see bubbles on the top side.
