These are an old favorite of mine. I use small-curd, low-fat cottage cheese. They come out thin and delicate, somewhere between a classic pancake and a crepe. A nice addition to a reduced-carb diet.

The batter was too thick so it didn't spread well in the pan. They were thicker than I expected. I only had large curd cottage cheese, and that wasn't the best thing to use. Next time I will add use small curd and see if it spreads better, and I will add some cinnamon and vanilla next time. This is a great recipe though if you are watching your carb intake. Read More

I was really pleased with these! I was craving pancakes and these hit the spot. Plus, if you're like me, I had all of these items on hand in my kitchen. I have made them twice. I have added a few items each time - some chopped nuts, some banana, some berries... it's a fun basic low carb batter to experiment with... Read More

I didn't want to wait 1 hr to dry out cottage cheese so I did what I do when a recipe calls for dried out spinach. I placed it in a hand towel and twisted until all excess moisture is gone! Scrape off the towel into the bowl. The pancakes turned out great! Read More

Wow! I couldn't believe how little flour goes into these! I followed the recipe but: didn't drain the cottage cheese (lazy) added spices (cinnamon vanilla cardamom) added baking powder as suggested by other reviews 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed and subbed raspberries for blueberries because they needed to be used up. overall I loved it and will make again but will cut down on the salt because my cottage cheese probably added enough. served with jam.

The first time I made this somehow I totally missed step number one about drying out the cottage cheese. The pancakes turned out fine so if you don't have time don't let that stop you. I just now made them again the same way but this time I decided to make a savory version by adding chopped parsley onions and a little parmesan. Read More
