These healthy pancakes take 2 minutes to make, and require minimal ingredients. If you know me, you know I am not a fan of cottage cheese, but I like to hide cottage cheese into a lot of my recipes as it adds extra protein and I cannot taste it at all. This recipe makes 14-15 mini pancakes and has 25 grams of protein and makes for the perfect breakfast or meal prep.

Healthy Pancakes

I don’t like cottage cheese so I like to hide it into a lot of my recipes as it adds extra protein, and you won't be able to taste it at all.

  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup cottage cheese
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • cup oat flour , you can blend organic rolled oats and make them into flour
  • tiny drizzle of oil or butter for the pan , I use avocado oil


  • In a food processor or blender, add the first five ingredients, and process until combined. I processed for about 20-30 seconds.
  • In a pan on the stove, add a touch of avocado oil or butter, and cook the pancakes on medium-high heat for a few minutes on each side.
  • Feel free to add a touch of honey, maple syrup, berries, or enjoy them plain as I often do as well.



These pancakes are perfect for meal prep, you can make them ahead of time or freeze them as well. 
You can purchase oat flour at your local health food store (or any grocery store) or simply make your own by blending organic rolled oats into flour in your blender. 
You can also use 1/3 cup of quick cooking rolled oats for this recipe instead of oat flour but I do enjoy the fluffiness and texture of oat flour more. 
You won’t be able to taste the cottage cheese so don’t worry. I have tried this recipe with yogurt too but it does not work as well.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…

    1. Yes, oat flour (which the original recipe calls for), is gluten free. You can always purchase gluten free oats and blend them yourself in a food processor or blender, to create a flour.

    Absolutely delicious! I don’t eat sugar and keep my diet very low carbohydrates. These pancakes make sure I eat high protein in the morning.

    Thank you for sharing ❤️

    I honestly was a skeptic about the cottage cheese but trusted you when you said you can’t taste it, still was a doubter. I tried these & the 1st time they were good. The 2nd time, I REALLY liked them. I have used up all the cottage cheese & have it on my grocery list to buy again so I can make these again.

  3. Made these to put in my son’s lunchbox with fruit. If you drizzle syrup or add PB or Nutella to them they’re sweet enough. I ate quite a few this morning!
