Cottage cheese pancakes

Start off your day right with this protein rich pancake stack and add some raspberries or blueberries on top; it tastes amazing!

The pancakes are fluffy, delicious and full of protein.

I never thought about adding cottage cheese to pancake batter until I went to Eastern Europe. They use cottage cheese in many of their traditional desserts, including pancakes. I was puzzled about it for a while, but after giving it a try, I have to say, these are very delicious, and you can’t even taste the cottage cheese. If this is news to you as well, bear with me and try this simple recipe. You won’t be disappointed. Some people add oats or blueberries in the batter and I’m sure it’s great, but this recipe is a very simple one. The only 3 main ingredients needed: eggs, cottage cheese and flour.

So if you are all about eating clean post workout, I’m pretty sure you will love this recipe.

Crepes

There is no special day to make a stack of pancakes where I’m from but as everyone at work is a planning to celebrate the Shrove Tuesday,

I decided to share with you my crepes recipe which is ultra light, thin, crispy with a twist of vanilla.

Crepes are basically pancakes. The ingredients are the same except in the end they come out thinner. I think what makes them special is the fact that they are so simple to make, and the ingredients are somehow always in your kitchen cupboard: flour, eggs, butter and milk…and I am pretty sure you too, have a pot of Nutella hiding somewhere, right? They are perfectly enjoyable at any time of the day. I love them in the morning with some bananas and strawberries.

I remember when I was younger I couldn’t make crepes at all. There was something about the process I couldn’t get right. The dough had lumps, they were too thick and when I fried them, they were sticking to the pan and I had to scrape them with my spatula. I found it sooo chaotic to make the crepes. But obviously now, in all modesty of course …I’m the queen of crepes.

Well enough said…let’s make some crepes!
