Ingredients: 

  • 1 16-ounce tub of cottage cheese
  • 5-6 eggs
  • 1-2 heaping tbsp GF pancake mix
  • Salt and cinnamon to taste, if desired
  • 1 cup frozen wild blueberries
  • Coconut oil for frying

Instructions:

  1. Turn skillet on medium heat and add 2-3 tbsp coconut oil
  2. Blend top 4 ingredients until smooth
  3. Stir in (don’t blend) blueberries (best if used frozen to thicken batter)
  4. Fry on each side 3-4 minutes (a lid helps batter to cook more evenly)
  5. Top with maple syrup and enjoy!

Think outside the recipe: add flax seed, shredded coconut or other fruit to increase fiber and try topping with fresh fruit! You could also include a couple of sausage links.
