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.


Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
