As we continue our look at healthy, fat burning breakfasts that help get your day going great from the word go, let’s take a look at incorporating fat free cottage cheese as your high quality protein.
Before we get to the main recipe…
One of the easiest ways to use cottage cheese as part of your breakfast is to spoon out some into a bowl, add some fruit (raspberries, pineapple, blueberries, etc), and dash on some cinnamon.
BOOM! You’ve got a fast, easy, and metabolism boosting meal that you can really have anytime. Heck, even a sprinkle of granola or some nuts is great to do too.
Now let’s take a look at Oat Pancakes with Cottage Cheese filling. WARNING: This is a recipe that a good bit of time, so this is one you might want to use primarily on weekends when you have more time, or prepare the pancakes the night before and re-heat them the next morning.
Makes: 3 pancakes
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
2 tbsp Whole Oats
1/3 cup Fat Free Cottage Cheese
1/3 cup Egg Whites
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Cinnamon
Pre-heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat. Blend all ingredients in a blender for about 10 seconds or until smooth.
Pour about 1/3 of the batter (1 pancake) onto skillet. Use some coconut oil cooking spray if necessary. Cook on medium heat, flip when it bubbles and is able to be flipped easily, about 1 minute per side.
Once all pancakes are cooked, fill with more cottage (Greek yogurt can be used too). Feel free to top with sliced fruit and some unsweetened cocoa powder (as pictured) for some extra flavor and fun. Enjoy!
