Lemon Cottage Cheese Pancakes

These are pretty good, especially if you are looking for a change of pace. I used cottage cheese to make them this time but I will try Ricotta cheese next time. Also, make sure you get the smallest curd possible.

You will need:

2 large eggs
¾ cup low-fat cottage cheese (you could probably use Ricotta Cheese as well)
½ cup flour
1/3 cup splenda
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp lemon juice
Zest of one lemon
½ tsp vanilla

Beat eggs. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

Heat skillet or griddle and coat with cooking spray. When hot, ladle about ¼ cup of batter per pancake onto pan.

Cook 1-2 minutes or until brown and then flip and cook until the other side is brown as well. Dust with powdered sugar and/or berries. Yeah, I know, I didn’t do that last part. I didn’t have any powdered sugar or berries so I just made do with a little butter.
