Mama's Blender Pancakes

I can't help it, I want to share a recipe that I have now made three times with amazing kid success. What I love about this recipe is that it's super simple to make, clean-up is reasonable, and it has ingredients that are good for growing kids. Winner in my book!

This recipe makes pancakes so light that it's close to a crepe. Almost Swedish pancake-esque but without all the hassle of whipping up egg whites.

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp oil (I use canola)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
In a blender combine all the ingredients and blend thoroughly. Heat griddle over medium heat and pour batter straight from the blender onto hot griddle - about 1/4 cup for each pancake. Once bubbles begin to form, flip the pancakes and finish cooking on the opposite side.

Personal notes: My kids like it with peanut butter, but I bet it would be divine with fresh berries or anything else you might eat on a crepe. To cut down on the yolks I use 4 whole eggs and the whites from 3 eggs. I use 1% cottage cheese and milk. I use half whole wheat for the flour. I plan to try it with oatmeal the next time I make these.

only half a cup of flour?? Is that right? Looks more like an egg recipe with 1/2 a cup of flour

You read right! Half a cup of flour.

These look amazing! I will have to try them sometime soon! I will of course be using all the yolks and either olive oil or coconut oil (no veggie oils for us). I think it would be good with dried blueberries in too!

And you used one of my favorite Spanglish words. Panqueques! I just love the sound of the word.

I'm a major fan of bananas & cinnamon. I will definitely try your recipe though. My tummy is grumbling as I type.
