Cottage cheese pancake, IBS Friendly


I don’t have coeliac disease, nor do I have irritable bowels (thank god! I can’t imagine life without weetbix). But these wheat free cottage cheese pancakes are JUST So DELICIOUS and easy to make, that I would ditch the regular pancakes for em ❤ YES! You'd only get it after you have made and tried em! They are flavoursome, fluffy and soft. Mmmmm. I have been eating them as a snack everyday this week!

So here is the original recipe link from Ambitious Kitchen http://www.ambitiouskitchen.com/2013/04/oatmeal-cottage-cheese-banana-pancakes-high-in-protein-gluten-free/

What you need for 1 serve:
1/2 cup gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats*
1/2 medium banana
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg
1/4 cup cottage cheese
1-2 tablespoons soy milk or low fat milk
+/- vanilla extract
optional ingredients: berries

How to:
1. I don’t do this and I don’t mind textural oat-ish pancakes. If you like smooth pancakes, this recipe calls to blend all ingredients until completely smooth, about 30 seconds.
2. Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet using cooking spray and heat over medium low heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cup onto skillet.
3. Add desired toppings such as blueberries. Cook until bubbles appear on top. Flip cakes and cook until golden brown on underside. Wipe skillet clean and repeat with more cooking spray and remaining batter. Makes 3-4 pancakes.

*I have tried using steel cut oats without blending them altogether, which gives the pancakes additional texture, which I quite like. But the pancakes are less fluffy as a result of that.

This recipe is very nutritious, as it uses wholegrain oats, fruits (bananas and berries), and the eggs and cottage cheese provide food amount of protein. Most importantly, it doesn’t requires added sugar and very minimal fat. This is an excellent recipe for breakfast or snacks.
