These cottage cheese pancakes are one my favourite breakfast although I get hungry again quicker than if I eat my normal breakfast of two fried eggs with bacon, and even after having the pancakes with whipped cream, as you see. Try eventually the pancakes together with a little cheese also for a savoury version or eventually with the Butter & Coconut Coffee.
The recipe is so easy, you wouldn’t believe it. You should have a good blender, and you have to be conscious about the characteristics of the HUSK psyllium fibres, as the texture of the batter will change the longer you wait before frying. The fibres actually expands in the fluid and the batter gets thicker quite quickly. Recipe below – and the quick one just for one or two persons added further below!! Scroll down.
How To Create These Cottage Cheese Pancakes
Serves 4 persons, makes around 12 pieces
5 eggs (medium size)
275 g full fat cottage cheese
2,5-3 tbsp psyllium fibres (aka HUSK). Exact amount depends on the texture of the cottage cheese and the size of the eggs
1 tsp of Sukrin Gold Sugar or 5 Stevia drops to sweeten a little bit (you can leave the sweetener out)
A little salt
The zest of one lemon or a little less
1 teaspoon of ground cardamom
- Put the eggs and the cottage cheese in your blender and blend for 30 seconds
- Add the dry items and the lemon zest and blend again for 20 seconds
- Ensure that fibres eventually stuck on the side of the blender gets into the batter
- Fry them on a very warm frying pan, use coconut oil for frying. Size them like a fried egg
The texture should be easy to pour out, but while you fry the first set of pancakes the batter will change a bit due to the psyllium fibres, so the last ones might be put on the frying pan with a wet spoon and be straightened a little. Serve with whipped cream, slices of fruit such as apple, kiwi or banana and blueberries. If you don’t manage to eat them all, they are absolutely lovely for the next couple of days, either cold like a wrap or heated on a pan with more whipped cream!!
