Recipe of the Week: Hi Protein/Low Carb Cottage Cheese Pancakes
Hi Protein/Low Carb Cottage Cheese Pancakes
This is a special Father’s Day breakfast for those who aren’t in their first two weeks of the program. These pancakes don’t taste at all like cottage cheese, and are very yummy!
-1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
-2 T vegetable oil
-½ c. almond flour (available in bulk at Huckleberry’s/Rosauer’s)
-¼ tsp. salt
-½ tsp. vanilla
Heat pan with oil to medium hot. Put all ingredients in blender and mix until smooth. Pour batter into pan in about 4 inch diameter circles and cook until bubbles start forming. Turn, cook very briefly, and remove from pan. Serves 3- 4.
Serve with a little homemade fruit sauce (recipe below), pure maple syrup or low-carb yogurt and fruit.

-1 cup water
-1 tablespoon cornstarch
-4 tablespoons of agave syrup

Put frozen fruit in pan. Mix all other ingredients together and pour over fruit. Bring to boil stirring occasionally. Enjoy!
