Easy-Blend Cottage Cheese Protein Pancakes

Breakfast & Brunch
Yield 8 Pancakes
Skill Level Easy

Start your morning with a protein-packed breakfast. This sweet treat gets an extra protein boost thanks to one of our favorite dairy ingredients – cottage cheese.  Even if you’re not a fan of cottage cheese on its own, you’ll be shocked at how well it blends into this simple pancake recipe. 


  1. Preheat a griddle to 350 degrees F. 
  2. In a large blender, combine all the ingredients.  Blend on high for 30-60 seconds, until well combined.  Let the batter sit for 3-4 minutes. 
  3. Using a ¼-cup measuring cup, portion batter onto the griddle.  Let cook for 1-2 minutes, or until bubbles start forming on the pancake, then flip.  Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until cooked through.   
  4. Remove the pancakes with a spatula and place on a plate. Repeat the last step until all batter is used up and pancakes are done.
  5. Enjoy with pure maple syrup and sliced strawberries (or whatever toppings you enjoy).


  • These pancakes will be a bit thinner and denser than traditional flour-based pancakes; that is normal for this recipe. 
  • If you do not have a griddle, you can also make these in a greased skillet over medium-low heat. 
  • One serving of this recipe may be 2 to 4 pancakes, depending on your body’s needs and your hunger level.
