Oatmeal Cottage Cheese Pancakes (with Chocolate Chips of course)

Here’s a new pancake recipe I tried because I had cottage cheese in the fridge I wanted to use up…and who doesn’t like pancakes?!? This was super simple, clean, high in protein and not overly sweet, which works well for me:) Although I did add chocolate chips…of course. But you could try a variety of additions…blueberries, bananas, apples, etc.

Ingredients:

1c egg whites
1c cottage cheese (I like Nancy’s Organic Cottage Cheese because it was the only one I could find without any additives or thickeners! It only contains the following – Organic skim milk, organic cream, organic nonfat dry milk, L. acidophilus, B. bifidum, and 4 strains of lactic cultures, salt)
1c oats (Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Rolled Oats are a great deal!)
2tsp sugar (I like coconut or maple sugar:)
1tsp cinnamon
1tsp vanilla
2T chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips)

Just combine everything except the chocolate chips in a blender and mix until smooth. Add the chocolate chips and cook on a skillet. I used a little less than 1/4c of batter for each and it made 18 small pancakes. The nutritional breakdown per pancake is approximately:

44 cal
1g fat
5g carbs
4g protein

Enjoy!
