No Flour Protein Packed Pancake Recipe

4 Ingredient Protein Packed Pancakes

No Flour Protein Packed Pancake Recipe

This recipe I recently received from a special former choir student I had when I taught high school choir 12 years ago!  I like to call her “Fancy Nancy”.  It’s been so good to catch up with her!  Thanks, Fancy Nancy for the recipe!!

I have a hard time with milk products except for ice cream and cheese:).  I never consume straight milk unless it’s in cereal or a recipe.  I have had to acquire a taste for yogurt in my adult years.  Cottage cheese is hard for me, and I’ll eat it in lasagne, but I prefer ricotta cheese.  I thought I would give this a shot, especially for my protein-yearning husband.   This pancake packs a series protein punch!

No Flour Protein Packed Pancake Recipe


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup oatmeal (certified gluten free if needed)
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • optional, 1 tsp flaxseed
  • optional, 3 T TriMix (1 T Wheat Germ, 1 T Wheat Bran, 1 T Oat Bran)


  1. Blend all ingredients (in blender) until the batter is smooth.
  2. Grease griddle.
  3. Warm griddle to medium heat.
  4. Pour 1/3 cup of the batter for each pancake.
  5. Flip pancakes when they bubble.
  6. Serve with your favorite toppings. We love butter, real maple syrup and jam.

The Verdict:

The blended batter was so smooth.  I was really impressed!   I couldn’t even tell there was cottage cheese in it because it was blended.  I would double the batch next time, especially since a 16 oz. container of cottage cheese is two cups.  I will definitely make this again!  JSarr agreed that we can make this our go-to recipe for pancakes now.

    Hey S,

    Did you use steel cut oats or the regular oats? I may need to give this a try :) Thanks for sharing!

    This is great! I am the same way about milk and yogurt. I can’t do either of them. This sounds like the perfect way to get a super healthy breakfast in! :)

    What a simple recipe and so healthy, I have never thought about using cottage cheese in pancakes!

    And thank you so much for linking up with Healthy 2day Wednesdays as always! Hope you have a blessed week and hope you’ll be linking up this week!

    I love the idea of these protein pancakes, but not the cottage cheese. We hardly ever eat/have that on hand. What would make a good substitute? Thanks!

      Tomorrow morning I will try substituting almond milk since I just found out I have to go dairy free:(. I will let you know. If you can do dairy, I would try sour cream, maybe buttermilk. I would work with the ratios of the oats if the batter was too thin.

    So, no baking powder? I’ve seen similar recipes, but always with baking powder…?
