Peanut Butter Banana Cottage Cheese Pancakes

If you’re looking for a healthy snack that is very tasty, and very unique, you’ve found it with the peanut butter banana cottage cheese pancakes! I know, it sounds absolutely absurd, but once you try them you’ll be amazed at how easy they are to make, how wonderful they taste, and how good for you they are compared to regular pancakes! This is assuming that you like peanut butter and bananas, but I am not assuming that you like cottage cheese. In fact, I can’t stand to eat cottage cheese plain myself, but the beauty of this recipe is that you can’t even tell there is any cottage cheese in these at all.

The way we are going to make this healthy is to use Old Fashioned Quaker Oats instead of flour or pancake mix. We’re also going to use cottage cheese and possibly protein powder instead of using butter, sugar, or baking powder. We’ll also be using egg whites instead of whole eggs. Finally, I recommend you use natural peanut butter instead of the regular variety.

This recipe will make 2 normal sized pancakes.

What you need:

1/2 cup of Old Fashioned Quaker Oats
1/2 cup of fat free, or low fat cottage cheese
3 to 4 egg whites
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (not required but recommended for extra protein)
1 banana
1/2 cup of natural peanut butter

This recipe is actually very easy to make! All you need to do is:

Combine everything in a blender, and blend it till it’s smooth. I use the “whip” function on my blender. After that, pour on your griddle or into your pan and cook on medium high heat, using a spatula to flip once the side facing down has firmed up.
