  1. I am not a cottage cheese fan but I was intrigued to try this recipe. I wanted to add more protein to my diet and also to my families. These pancakes are incredible. So much flavour so fluffy. We all loved it from my 1 year old to my 11 year old and including my husband. With one batch I was able to make almost 3-4 pancakes per person. So easy to make in the morning. Thank you

  2. Loved making and eating these pancakes! Easy ingredients, fast to make and the taste is delicious. It was surprising to see how the cottage cheese disappears, gives a soft texture and one would never guess it’s part of the recipe.
    I added a bit extra sugar, and they turned out a proper dessert.
    Served with fresh fruits, or our favorite cloudberries jam, yummy!

  3. I didn’t think I was going to like this recipe, but they were SO GOOD! Even my picky 1 year old loved them. They also freeze well for a fast and healthy high protein breakfast or snack during busy weekdays. I recommend giving this recipe a try!

  4. I made these as part of the monthly challenge and was so impressed! I think I found the one way I like cottage cheese! Super yummy and great texture.

  5. Surprised that by adding cottage cheese to the pancakes didn’t change the flavor, they were so moist and bonus I got more protein in this meal! Thank for sharing, Yumna!

      1. Later that day my extremely picky 7 year old ate them,too! She doesn’t eat cheese and didn’t figure it out…

  6. These are delicious and healthy and have a lovely texture. They were especially good with a fruit topping and reheat well in the microwave.
