Kathleen’s Cottage Pancakes

Makes about 2 dozen small pancakes. I made mine a bit bigger and got 17 or 18.

Ingredientsarena fitness, gluten free, gluten free pancakes, healthy pancakes

  • 6 eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups cottage cheese

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt

  • 1/2 cup flour (see comments above regarding gluten-free options)

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda


Beat eggs until light. Mash cottage cheese (Kathleen uses a food processor, I used my mini chopper to really get it smooth). Add to eggs along with the remaining ingredients. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a lightly-greased griddle (I like to use my cast iron skillet) and cook over medium heat until browned on both sides and cooked through. Top with maple syrup or fresh fruit, as desired. 

For a healthy and aromatic option, try using coconut oil to cook your pancakes.
