Cottage Cheese Pancakes

It's been six years since I first posted these Cottage Cheese Pancakes. I can't believe it's been that long! Two things have changed since then. Kenya now enjoys cottage cheese and especially when I give him these pancakes he will eat an entire stack in one sitting! Going back through the Weelicious archives I wanted to make sure these unbelievably delicious and easy to make pancakes were at the top of your recipe to do list!

If you know me or weelicious, you know I am not a fan of tricking kids into eating their vegetables. There has been a trend in children's cooking over the last few years which advocates hiding or disguising the foods our kids should be eating. For example, if you have a kid who doesn't like spinach, you can just bake a batch of brownies incorporating spinach into the recipe and your child will never know he's eating his greens.

Aside from being a time consuming way to feed your children, I simply don't like the idea of deceiving kids, especially when it comes to food and establishing good lifelong eating habits. Inspiring kids to love fruits and vegetables is much more fun, rewarding and easy (yes, I said easy) than you think.

Still, even when you are as committed to nutrition as I am, kids will be kids and not easily swayed from what they do and don't like. For instance, Kenya isn't a huge fan of cottage cheese and, trust me, I've tried (and repeatedly failed) to make it taste yummy to him. I've topped it with Raspberr-Wee Sauce, let him squeeze honey on it, mixed it with diced pineapple (one of my childhood favorites) and attempted many other variations, but each time he takes a bite he refuses to eat any more.

I embrace and respect the fact that every kid has his own unique palate and that Kenya may just not like cottage cheese, but I still wasn't ready to give up on it. After all, cottage cheese is packed with protein and is such an inexpensive and nutritious food that it became a personal mission of mine to devise a recipe using it that Kenya would enjoy.

These pancakes were my final try and I was excited to see how they would go over with Kenya. Six pancakes into his breakfast (no exaggeration, SIX), he asked, "what kind of pancakes are these mommy?" It was as if I had gotten caught. I stopped in my tracks and hesitantly mumbled, "cottage cheese pancakes". He just looked at me and said "they're really good," and he's viewed cottage cheese differently ever since. Just goes to show you when it comes to food, don't give up on something you believe your kids will ultimately love and remember, honesty is always the best policy!

    Does it matter if you use full/low/no fat cottage cheese? Wanted to thank you again for helping me to prepare homemade meals all week for my family. Couldn't do it without your great ideas!

    Thanks Catherine for your wonderful recipes. I am having so much fun with them!! This recipe is a big hit with my family. I recently experimented with Ricotta cheese, and the pancakes were fabulous. I'm not good at identifying the difference - maybe a little milder tasting and fluffier? I recommend trying this alternative!

    Can you suggest a gluten free flour sub for this recipe? I'm a little over a year into cooking gf for my hubby, and am not always sure which flour is best for substituting. I have several varieties, but am partial to rice flour (bob's red mill) or \"all purpose\" flour blends.

    I absolutely agree with not tricking your kids into eating veggies. From the very beginning, my kids, 18 months and 3, have eaten pretty much everything my husband and I eat. No special kids meals. If its halibut for dinner, they eat it. I guess I've been lucky with kids that like when I cook - I get \"THIS IS DELICIOUS!\" a lot when I cook (vs. when I reheat I get no comment but its still eaten!)... And I'm a big fan of all eating together at the dinner table for family time. Catherine, you're great and an inspiration!!!

    These are absolutely delicious. My 11 mos old gobbles them up! If I wanted to add pumpkin puree, how much would i add and would i need to reduce the amount of cottage cheese? Thanks!!

    leave a comment

    • GinnyIckle

      She has a pumpkin pancakes recipe on the site, might try that. Otherwise, I suspect total of cottage cheese plus pumpkin should come to not much more than the cottage-cheese total here. Maybe a quarter-cup leeway, as the pumpkin is denser? Just guessing!

    Thank you so much Catherine for sharing your recipes. I've tried a few of them and they are all \"weelicious\" :)
    I made the pancakes this morning and I put a few in the freezer. Now I have a question for you: Once they are frozen, how do you re-heat them?

    • Catherine

      I just let them thaw to room temp - it takes about 10 minutes or just put them in a pan and heat through or just the microwave

      Whole wheat flour is little more dense and will not allow the pancakes to be fluffy. Do you have white whole wheat flour?

    I didn't care for the texture of the pancake with 1/2 c flour so I increased it to 3/4 and felt like it had more of a pancake feel. Pretty good and I love the protein serving in the cake.

    Made these this morning and they came out very egg-y rather than pancake like. What did I do wrong? My husband and 15 month old still ate them, but I didn't care for the texture. :(

    • Catherine

      Did you use large eggs or Extra large eggs? All weelicious recipes call only for large eggs. That may have been the problem. You can add more flour next time if you feel like the consistency is not for your taste :)

    These are delicious! my 10 month old devours them. I altered the recipie and substituted 1/2 small banana for the agave nectar/honey and I didn't have cottage cheese on hand so I used 1/2 c Greek Yogurt and 1/2 c ricotta cheese. sounds weird, but they turned out so fluffy and delish! thank you, thank you for this website. you inspire me.

    I made these this morning for my DS. He loved them. I made a few substitutions. I used half ww flour and half white flour. I also omitted the vanilla and used a tiny less salt than listed. Next time I may use even less as the cottage cheese seemed to lend a salty flavor to the pancake. I will definatly be making this again.

  • Irina

    We loved this recipe! We also tried a variation at my son's request, since that is how he likes his \"regular\" pancakes too: ww flour, no vanilla, no honey, had to add some milk to thin the batter a bit. When cooking, add a smily face of thin olive slices. He just loves pancakes with olives! He eats these with extra cheese! And in the sweet version we had to add a smiley face of raisins :).

      unfortunately, eggs are the binder for this recipe. Especially since there is cheese in them. Do you use an egg substitute at home?

      Flax seed is an eggscellant egg replacement...For each egg to be replaced, blend in a blender/food processor 1 tablespoon flax seed with 3 tablespoons water until the mixture is thick and creamy.

    what is the difference with hiding veggies and hiding cottege cheese?

    You are adding it in and covering it up a bit.
    you are still being honest and telling your child what you put in there. no harm.

    I think you would better understand why parents do it if you had a child who wouldn't eat anything......

    These look great, I'm excited to try them!!

    I have to say that lately I've become a fan of hiding veggies, but I don't consider it deception. I am just boosting the nutrition of our food. I alway serve my little boy veggies as well, but he's often not receptive to it. I know persistence pays off, but in the meantime, I want to make sure he is getting enough vitamins, fibre etc. He is too young to help with food prep, grow veggies, and all the other things that encourage kids to take an interest in their food, so for now I feel I am being a good mom by \"sneaking\" in his vegetables.

      Soft or silken tofu might work, run through the blender. Might need to add a bit more flavor to make up for the absence of the buttery (once melted) cottage cheese.

    Recently made a version of these pancakes and my pancake loving 8 year old loved them. Nice way to give her protein instead of just empty carbs. Personally I think it's genius to add (not hide) fruits and veggies to recipes. I think it is making the recipes healthier. My veggie hating hubby benefits from this as well. (and his mom loaded him with fresh fruits and veggies as a child) Seems like you don't agree with LYING to children about adding healthy ingredients to recipes (being sneaky), rather than the act of doing so. ??

      It's going to depend on size of eggs, kind of flour, kind of cottage cheese ... I use free site MyFitnessPal.com to track nutritional info, and when I put in a recipe, it automatically calculates nutritional content for me. Love it!

    These seemed a bit too salty to me (although they were delicious) and I'm sure it was because of the cottage cheese. I try to avoid high sodium foods with my 22 month old daughter.

    Any ideas to decrease the sodium content? I would still like to use the full fat cottage cheese.

    Thanks!

    • Catherine

      You could cut the salt in half, or just delete it altogether. Salt brings out the flavors in almost anything which is why I use it in small amounts. I hope this works better for you next time!

      Maybe use an unsalted cottage cheese, or skip the added salt?

    • Catherine

      The eggs act as a binder which I'm not sure applesauce would do, but banana might. You can also use flax seed as an egg replacement. 1 Tbsp Ground Flax Seed plus 3 Tbsp Water equals 1 Egg. It sometimes changes the flavor and texture, but sometimes works like a charm!

    Having a nightmare of a time with this recipe! They keep sticking to the pan &amp; a very soupy texture. I used 1% cottage cheese because that's what I had on hand. This may be the problem but the recipe didn't specify a type. Tried to add more flour with no luck. Will attempt again another time would really like to try them!

    leave a comment

    • Mel

      The batter gets thinner the longer it sits. Also, mixing dry ingredients into wet just enough to moisten the flour (it will seem a bit under-mixed) helps keep it from getting soupy. Hope this helps!

      I make them up in the blender. :)
      Also, some cottage cheese brands are quite wet, while others are pretty dry. A drier version works better, I think.

    These were good, but seemed a little too salty - next time I make them, I'll cut down on the salt. I also used 1.5 times the flour called for, based on other readers comments, and they cooked perfectly. My 5-yr old ate several, and didn't even notice any difference from \"normal\" pancakes.

  • Jill

    These are tasty and they smell divine. They're a little too savory by themselves (I like sweeter pancakes), but they are AMAZING if you serve them with fresh strawberries. They'd probably be good with fresh raspberries or blackberries or anything sweet and tart. I tried to put chopped strawberries in the batter and cook them that way, but I found I like the cold strawberry flavor and texture better.

    Also, I added a spoonful more flour after the first two turned out too flat (for my tastes). Stick to the Tablespoon size (medallion size) pancakes to be sure they get cooked all the way through. I tried to make them a little bigger at first, and they didn't turn out quite right.

    All in all very delicious and a great way to use cottage cheese (for those of us who can't palate the stuff by itself).

      Cook them over lower heat! What type of pan are you using?

    can i make these with egg yolks and without honey - want to make them for my 9 month old who cant have honey or egg whites yet?

      The honey adds sweetness, so you can leave it out if you don't mind the resulting flavor. If you want sweetness then use agave instead or another liquid sweetener. I'm not sure about the egg yolks, but I'm thinking that would be okay. You might need to add one more to help the dough come together. Let me know how it comes out with your changes! If the batter seems too thick try adding a little water.

    I just made these for my mother-in-law this morning after church. They turned out delicious and I will be making them again many times. So flavorful and fluffy. I used 3/4 cup whole wheat flour instead of white flour, fat free cottage cheese and maple syrup. NO SALT.

    I just made these for my husband and I this morning because I had some Cottage Cheese that I needed to use up and he won't touch it. They are WONDERFUL even got the approval of my husband! I added a small amount (maybe a 1/2 tablespoon) of ground flax seed and also used Quinoa Flour in place of regular flour simply because it is what I had on hand. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thank you!

    Not sure if anyone has done this, but I put the cottage cheese in the food processor for a couple whirls to give it a smoother texture. Big improvement!

    Love Love Love this recipe. Sundays are pancake day for us and I have been trying all of the pancakes in the weelicious cookbook and this is my favorite recipe thus far! I admit, I was doubtful that cottage cheese would be good. It is a healthier alternative to ricotta pancakes. Would highly recommend.

    Love these!!! I often make a double batch and freeze them. I usually eat an early light dinner with the kids and end up being hungry shortly after they go to bed. I take a couple of these out of the freezer for a perfect little snack. When I run out, I immediately make more! Kids love them too!

    I just made these tonight along with the sweet potato latkes. These pancakes were a huge hit! I thought they were fantastic and so did the kids. My 4 year old refuses to eat cottage cheese and he said these were the best pancakes he's ever had. And we cook up a lot of different pancakes. Thanks for a great recipe!

      Now I wonder if sievlr dollar pancakes are the same as pikelets?I think the pigeons have eaten all our cherries before they even got a chance to grow and ripen. There is lots of evidence of them having done so on the ground under the tree! We haven't had anything from the garden yet, although the piggies have had some of the sievlrbeet.

    Do you have nutritional values for the cottage cheese pancakes? My whole family repeatedly calls these their favorite pancakes ever! I use 1/2 vanilla extract and 1/2 almond extract which is delicious!

      MtFitnessPal.com (great free site) lets members instantly calculate nutritional info when they enter a recipe. :) I've found it very helpful, as I generally cook from scratch and I can enter a recipe once and call it up again and again.

    We are addicted to these things in my house! It's always a challenge incorporating proteins into my 14 month olds diet and these for the bill - he's been eating them since he was 10 months old. I also recently made these pancakes for my mom after she had surgery. They are super easy to eat and provide a ton of nutrition. They also freeze beautifully!

    Are you sure that the recipe doesn't include any milk? I would think you need a little milk in recipe?

      Nope! :) The cottage cheese takes care of the moisture!
