Sorry it has been awhile since I have posted anything. Life got a bit hectic so I took a break from couponing and blogging. Last week I visited a friend who gave me a huge pile of coupons to go through and after clipping coupons yesterday I am excited to get back into my old routine - which includes blogging. And since today is my birthday I'm going to share my favorite pancake (and breakfast) recipe.
The original recipe came from Whole Foods online recipe finder. I was looking for breakfast ideas with protein sources other than meat or eggs. And that is when I came across this "Fluffy Cottage Cheese Pancake" recipe. I was very hesitant to make them as I was not a cottage cheese fan and had tried a recipe for "Orange Cloud Pancakes" from the King Arthur Whole Grain cookbook, which contained cottage cheese and I did not enjoy them at all! After the recipe sat on my recipe stand for awhile I decided to finally give it a try as the comments on the website were all very positive. The whole family gobbled these down so quickly that they soon became a family favorite and I've been working on making them a bit healthier with whole grains and less cholesterol than the original recipe. Before we discovered this recipe our favorite pancakes were homemade buttermilk pancakes, but to make the breakfast substantial we always made sausage, eggs, or bacon to go along with it. Now I make a double batch of these and freeze them for easy midweek breakfasts.
