Introduction

No flour. No flour.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    .5 cup dry oatmeal
    .5 cup fat free cottage cheese
    4 egg whites
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    1 packet Stevia* (2 packets for sweeter pancakes)
    a Blender

Directions

Blend everything except the oats. Once you have a smooth liquid, add the oats and blend for only a little bit, you want the batter to be a little bumpy.


If you're going to add fruit (like blueberries), add them whole to the batter after you blend it or your batter will be too liquidy.
I usually let the batter sit for a couple minutes, to thicken up a bit.


Cook in a pan coated with no stick cooking spray. Makes about six 4-5” pancakes.
Top with your favorite sugar free syrup.


*Splenda packets can be used in place of Stevia.


Number of Servings: 6

    Definitely will make these again. They were yummy and I had no problems with texture or runny batter. I tweaked a pinch - used 2 eggs instead of whites and added cinnamon. Excellent! - 2/5/11

    I didn't have the cheese so I used Fage Greek Style yogurt (o% fat) instead. This yogurt has a very thick texture which is why I think the pancakes were not a runny mess. I too used an instant oatmeal (Costco's Organic Instant stuff). I used nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon for flavoring. - 2/19/10

    I've been making these for awhile now. I half the recipe and make for lunch quite often. These are fantastic!
    However, I do not add the Stevia or any artificial sweetner. I do not like the taste or aftertaste of artificial sweetners have so I prefer to go without.

    These have become a favorite at my house, with DH and I both working on our calorie intake. I use old-fashioned 5-min. oats and have no problems with the batter just as written. If you measure 1/4 C of batter to make 6 they are about 4" and you should cook thoroughly before trying to turn. - 11/13/11

    LOVED these! Will make them often as a pre-workout snack. I used 1-minute oats and made sure to only PULSE the mixture with the oats a few times to keep it lumpy enough. Those who complain that the texture is too runny, make sure your pan is hot enough to immediately sizzle the batter upon contact. - 3/27/12

    Awesome recipe! I added fresh strawberries to the batter once it was poured on the pan. Make sure that you keep your pan on medium low. It takes longer to cook, but they'll stay together. - 2/27/10

    I have a question. Is that old fashioned oatmeal or quick 1 minute? I see some have mentioned a problem cooking/staying together. The type of oatmeal could make a difference. - 3/8/09

    For those complaining about runny pancakes, why don't you whip up two of the egg whites and fold them under the batter. You still have to cook them slowly, but it is so worth it. - 3/21/13

    I use 2 whole eggs and quick oats, and leave out any sweetener. Never have any problems with holding together. Also good with just a few tbl spoons of old fashion oats substituted in for more texture. Then eat with cream cheese and fresh fruit. Fabulous! Currently my husbands favorite pancakes. - 9/20/12

    These are so yummy! I had to use up a container of cottage cheese that I couldn't eat straight up because of all the sodium in it and I really didn't want to toss it. I added 1 very ripe small banana instead of the stevia and still tasted yummy. Definately will make me more! - 1/28/11

    Absolutely amazing! The Cals blew me away. After a month of SP diet, I was really needing some "soul food". These were light, fluffy (if you make in the blender) and delicious. I doubled the recipe for my family of 5 and there were not any left. Bless you! - 3/26/11

    These are an absolute pain to make! The batter is really runny and hard to control. Because of how much it spreads they get really thin and tear instead of flipping. I've found making really small ones is the way to go. They're great with some pumpkin spice thrown in and pumpkin or apple butter! - 1/27/11

    Fluffy, soft and tasty! I don't use baking powder but instead I use truvia sweetener, cinnamon and vanilla extract and add sliced bananas and top with natural PB. I blend the oats, cottage cheese and eggs whites together and then stir in the the rest of the ingredients. Tastes just like pancakes! - 8/13/10

    I make this every morning - I add one egg, 1 tsp cinnamon, pinch of salt, no sweetener or sugar. I mix it all together at same time. I eat the whole amount which comes to 304 calories. Plus I add 1 tbsp real maple syrup on top. This morning, I added 1/4 c. Blueberries. I use Pam. So good! - 6/9/15

    Tasted good, but six servings is really stretching it, one pancake is not a serving, why make this for one pancake each? We each had three. If you don't add junk to them, it's fine. - 5/21/15

  • love this recipe. Nicefor a dessert or snack too. Be sure to cook it over lower heat and slower as not to burn. I don't even blend it, as I like the texture of the oats whole and use long cooking oats too. I do let the batter sit for about 5 minutes. I add in spices or a splash of lemon juice -etc. - 9/19/16

  • Made these this morning and thought they were pretty good. Next time I will add cinnamon and nutmeg to give them more of a 'french toast' taste. Might also try adding a tablespoon of vanilla protein powder, since that's what I usually add to my regular pancakes to boost the protein. - 4/29/13

  • Tried this recipe this morning for breakfast. Had the heat down low to avoid the breaking up issue. By the time they were done cooking it was time for morning tea!
    I must be doing it wrong. It didn't taste very nice and imo just took far too long to be worth it.

  • Not sure what I did wrong but they kept sticking to the pan. Aside from the sticking, they weren't bad. I added pear, almond extract and a little bit of coconut. They were filling but as mine sure weren't pancakes. :)
