3-Ingredient Cottage Cheese Pancakes


  • 1/2 cup Hiland Dairy lowfat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal or steel cut oats
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-2 Tbsp oil (for cooking the pancakes)


  • Mix cottage cheese, oatmeal and eggs in blender until smooth
  • Heat griddle over medium heat and add oil
  • Pour or scoop approximately 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto the griddle
  • Cook 2-4 minutes per side or until fully cooked and slightly browned on both sides
  • Serve with your choice of toppings


You can easily double or triple the recipe to serve a larger crowd. This batter packs a powerful 35 grams of total protein, which is more than 4 grams of protein per pancake! Top with peanut butter & serve with a glass of cold Hiland Dairy milk for even more protein. My kids love these and I know they are starting their day with a nutritious breakfast and no added sugar.
