smooth. Pour into a mixing blowl and add flour, sugar, salt and soda. Mix

These have a spongey, crape-like texture and taste wonderful with fruit jam

These pancakes were delicious! Katie and Victoria actually seem to like them quite a bit better than my normal, buttermilk pancake recipe, (which I had always thought was pretty awesome.) They are flatter and thinner than the pancakes we are used to, but they have such a great flavor and are infinitely more healthy.

Protein in the mornings is super important for me while pregnant, and I have a hard time finding ways of getting it into me that sound appetizing. You can only eat scrambled eggs so many times in one week.

With the cottage cheese, eggs and whole wheat flour, (I just used regular, since I didn’t have pastry on hand) pack these babies with protein and nutrition!

I may never make my usual recipe again!

These sound good! My older two hate cottage cheese, but I bet if they didn’t know what was in them, they’d eat it! :)

I’ll definitely give it a whirl, but 6 eggs seems like a LOT. I think I’ll scale back and see what happens…I’m adventurous like that ;)

About how many pancakes does this make? I know it depends on size but trying go gauge how many this will feed. Thanks so much!!

I’m trying to remember…I know it was at least 18-20. But, like you said, it depends on size. :-) Mine were small enough that an adult needed 3 or maybe even 4 for a hearty breakfast. Hope that helps! :-)
