Serves: 1 (approx. 4 pancakes)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 medium banana, peeled
1/4 cup cottage cheese
2 large egg whites or 1 whole egg
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Vegetable oil spray
The cottage cheese is undetectable in these pancakes, so even picky eaters will give them their seal of approval!
Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and mix until a smooth batter is formed.
Spray a skillet with the vegetable oil spray and heat on medium-low heat.
When the skillet is hot, drop 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet. Cook until bubbles appear on the top and then flip. Cook until the underside of the pancake is golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
Serve pancakes topped with fruit and vanilla Greek yogurt or syrup.
