Makes: 1 serving
- 60 grams 4% fat cottage cheese
- One large egg (approx. 63 grams on Cronometer)
- 5 grams of your sweetener of choice (e.g., stevia, xylitol, monk fruit, erythritol)
- Add ingredients to a mixing bowl.
- Blitz the egg, cottage cheese, and sweetener together until the mixture is uniform throughout.
- Heat a non-stick pan until it’s medium to hot when you place your hand over it. You should not need to oil the pan.
- Pour the batter into the pan. Don’t make the pancakes too large, as they are delicate and tough to flip if they get too big!
- When the pancakes have formed bubbles on the top side and the batter starts to dry out, flip them. Repeat on the non-cooked side.
- Serve with your choice of toppings; I like fruit and Greek yoghurt on mine, but cinnamon, berries, nuts, nut butter, and butter are my favourites, depending on your energy budget. Enjoy!
