Ingredients
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup cottage cheese, low- fat or non-fat
  • ¾ cup rolled oats (use GF oats for GF option)
  • 2 tsp honey*
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • salt to taste
  • ½ cup sliced fresh strawberries (or fruit of your choice)
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients ( except strawberries) in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Spray a large skillet (or griddle) with non-stick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. If using heart shaped molds place on skillet and fill with ¼ cup batter. (if not using heart molds, pour ¼ cup batter directly on skillet/griddle). When pancakes start to bubble, remove heart mold (if using)and flip pancakes over. Cook until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter (spray skillet or griddle with non-stick spray between batches)
  3. Top with sliced strawberries.
  4. Serve with syrup or chocolate sauce if desired.
Notes
* For lower sugar option you can use ½ banana instead of honey ( reduces sugar grams to 7.9 g) or use 1-2 packets of stevia (reduces sugar grams to 5.4 g)
