Low Carb Cottage Cheese - Oatmeal Pancakes



I found this recipe for low carb pancakes on Pinterest a few years ago and they have become a staple for my morning meal. Breakfast is a "have to" for me...I never miss it. I usually have two eggs, some turkey bacon and one of these pancakes. They're moist, dense and good stick to your ribs kinda food!

   
Low Carb Cottage Cheese - Oatmeal Pancakes

1 cup oatmeal, ground (measure BEFORE grinding in a food processor)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
 3 or 4 tablespoons Splenda granular
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 

 4 eggs
1 cup cottage cheese
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a large bowl combine the ground oatmeal, baking soda, salt, Splenda, and spice. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs, cottage cheese, milk, and vanilla. Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients and stir to combine. (To make this super easy, throw EVERYTHING into a blender or food processor after grinding the oatmeal, and pulse until just combined.  This will also help if you don’t like the cheese curds.)  The photo is NOT pureed …when blenderized these will be more the texture and look of regular pancakes.
Heat a frying pan over medium-low heat. Spray with vegetable cooking spray. Drop 1/3 cup of batter into pan and fry until golden on the bottom. Flip and continue cooking for another 2 minutes or until firm.
Makes about 8 pancakes.

I've altered the above recipe a bit by adding baking powder instead of the baking soda. I think they raise better and I found that two tablespoons of sweetener was plenty. I also added a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon.
