Ingredients And Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Gluten Free Cottage Cheese Pancakes. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.
This recipe contains eggs which adds to the overall texture, flavor and protein content.
I used low fat Cottage cheese, but you can use any type that you prefer.
Maple syrup adds a touch of sweetness to the batter, you can use for honey, agave, or granulated sugar like cane, coconut or monk fruit. You may also leave it out.
You can use any type of milk or nut milk such as almond milk, cashew milk, oat milk or just regular dairy milk.
The flour base of these pancakes are made with oat flour which you can buy at the store or make by yourself by blending oats until they are in a fine powder.
A touch of salt helps balance out all the flavors.
Baking powder and baking soda will work together to create a really fluffy texture.
Finish these pancakes off with either more cottage cheese, yogurt, butter and fruit of choice. I did blueberries, and serve warm with maple syrup.
