Oatmeal Cottage Cheese Pancake Recipe
Eat Healthier Breakfast Foods
When making the transition into healthy living it can be extremely difficult to give up the foods you have always enjoyed, you know, the ones coated with butter, fried in oil, and drenched with sugar. It can also be extremely difficult and tedious to become creative, making healthy foods taste good and satisfy your cravings so you do not run back to fluffy, buttery, mouth watering, junk food goodness. It must be known that just because you desire a healthier body, it does not mean that you cannot enjoy some healthier versions of the all the foods you still crave, and I am here to make that transition easier for you!
This recipe is a slim version of the breakfast pancake we have all grown to love. A bleached and enriched flour and sugar based, fluffy, buttery, delicious round cake drenched in maple syrup and fruit can stay at Denny's, but when you are in your own kitchen thinking about running to the breakfast restaurants, remember this recipe, it is not only easy to make, but the taste is undeniable, it is a freaking pancake!
Made with oats, cottage cheese, egg whites, and cinnamon these pancakes taste so similar to our favorite fried breakfast cake you will not even believe it (I know it may be difficult to imagine at first, but just give it a shot). The flavor is rich, creamy, smooth, and satisfying to the taste buds and the best part is is that you can eat all six without feeling guilty or fat!
So ditch the sugar, flour, and butter and grab the oats, cottage cheese, and egg whites and start living the delicious, flavor filled, satisfying and healthy lifestyle that you have always desired.
Just because you have to give up junk food does not mean you have to give up great tasting food!

These pancakes only contain 10g of carbohydrates, 6g of protein, and only 1 teeny gram of fat. If you wish to have a boost of flavor and desire a small amount of fat in your diet, I would suggest adding some peanut butter (or nut butter) to the top of the pancakes. You can also top with bananas, Greek yogurt, or whatever else may tickle your fancy.
