I know, sounds wierd. I had some cottage cheese I needed to use up and had heard about cottage cheese pancakes. So I did a quick search for a recipe and modified it a bit. My kids LOVED them. Husband even ate one and said it was good, but wouldn't eat another one after I told him there was cottage cheese in them (see, it's all in his head! ;) It's a good way to get some more protein into your kids breakfast for sure!
Cottage Cheese Pancakes
*makes about 6 large pancakes
1 cup cottage cheese
2 TBS oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup flour
Mix together and cook on skillet. (these are pretty thick and take a little longer to cook on each side)
*you could also substitute oil for applesauce and the 1/3 cup flour for 1/4 cup whole wheat flour. Since I was trying them for the first time I decided to play it safe (and make sure my kids would eat them), but I'm definitely going to try the healthy alternatives next time.
