Cottage Cheese Pancakes

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup low-fat (1%) cottage cheese
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 teaspoons vegetable oil

1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir in cottage cheese, milk, egg whites, and vanilla.

2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium. Working in batches, drop cottage cheese mixture by 1/4 cupfuls into pan (2 or 3 at a time)

3. Cook until bottoms are set and tops have small bubbles, about 1 minute. Turn pancakes, and cook until just firm in the center, 1 to 3 minutes more. Repeat, using remaining 3 teaspoons oil for the other batches.

Drizzle these pancakes with maple syrup or your favorite fruit sauce. They can also be served with fresh fruit and a dusting of confectioners' sugar.
