Protein-Packed Whole Wheat Pancakes

You may worry your kid isn't getting enough protein if she shuns meat and eggs. A stack of these protein-heavy pancakes will fill her up good.


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1 cup cottage cheese

  • 4 eggs

  • 1/3 cup milk

  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

  • 1 tsp canola oil


  • Stir flour with baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

  • Whirl cottage cheese in a food processor until smooth. Add eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla. Whirl in flour mixture until just combined.

  • Heat an extra-large non-stick frying pan over medium. Brush with oil. Scoop a scant 1/4 cup batter into pan for each pancake. Cook until bottoms are set, 1 to 2 min. Flip and cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 min more. Remove to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter.
