ISwearThey’reDelicious- Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Thanksgiving is over! No more carbs with a side of potatoes, with another kind of carb on the side. Nope. Time to kick the habit.

I found this amazing recipe for cottage cheese pancakes that are gluten-free to boot. Even if you don’t like cottage cheese, I promise you don’t taste it at all. They are savoury, flavorful with a magical butter quality without an ounce of butter. Mmmm I could get used to these in regular rotation.  Today I made them with my easy apple compote, but they’d be even better with a couple links of turkey sausage on the side.

How’s that for a healthy breakfast?


They’re a little flat, but your abs will be too.

This apple compote is toooo easy!

Cottage Cheese Pancakes with Apple Compote

Pancakes 

  • 3/4 c. Low-fat cottage cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 c. Gluten-free flour
  • 1/8 tsp. Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt

Apple Compote

  • 2 Granny Smith apples, finely diced
  • 1/2 c. Water
  • 1-2 tsp. Cinnamon
  1. On medium heat, combine all apple Compote ingredients in a non-stick frying pan. Cook 20-40 minutes, depending how “apple-saucy” you like your Compote. I like a crunch and cooked mine for about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally and add more water if needed.
  2. Place cottage cheese in a small food processor. Chop until smooth.
  3. Add cottage cheese and eggs in a bowl. Whisk together.
  4. Add dry ingredient to the cottage cheese egg mixture and combine.
  5. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Lightly coat with oil.
  6. Drop 1-2 Tablespoons of pancake batter in the cast iron and allow to brown and then flip.
  7. Place a couple pancakes on a plate and top with apple Compote.
  8. Don’t forget to buy turkey sausage!
