Healthy Chocolate Cheesecake Pancakes
Author: 
Recipe type: Breakfast
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup (white) whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 16 packets of splenda or ⅔ cup sugar or sugar substitute
  • chocolate chips, optional (I used sugar free)
Instructions
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the cottage cheese, milk, eggs and vanilla. Stir until combined.
  2. Add the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and splenda and mix until completely combined.
  3. Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Spray with pam or non stick baking spray.
  4. Pour the batter in heaping spoonfuls onto the hot pan. Fry until the top appears set, then flip it over and fry it until cooked through. It should be lightly browned on the outside of both sides.
  5. If you want an extra treat, sprinkle them with chocolate chips just before flipping them.
  6. Serve hot, with maple syrup, berry sauce (that’s a recipe I’ll have to post one day) or even chocolate sauce!
  7. Enjoy!
