Cottage Cheese Pancakes

I am sharing my recipe for cottage cheese pancakes. They are protein rich, add moisture and just a bit of tang. You will like them if ricotta pancakes are also your thing.

The extra protein makes them a healthier option. You can top these as you wish- they are perfect with either pure maple syrup or sugar-free syrup (which I use often).

I like to pair mine with bacon, but you do what is best for your diet. Meatless sausages are also nice. As well as lean ham. Or perhaps no meat at all? Fresh fruit can be an option.

  1. I’ve never heard of cottage cheese pancakes nor ricotta cheese pancakes. I’m going to give these a try. Thanks.

  2. I have some leftover ricotta from another recipe that I am pretty sure I can substitute for the small curd cottage cheese so your pancakes will be on the menu shortly, Sue!

  3. Wow this sounds perfect for the cottage cheese I am always throwing out. Perfect for a lazy sunday.
