We couldn’t, and you shouldn’t either. Enjoy!
Whole Wheat Cheese Blintz Pancakes
Adapted from Rachael Ray Magazine
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
- 6 tablespoons milk
- 4 1/2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder + 1/8 teaspoon extra
- 1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
- butter for cooking
- jam for topping
In a blender, combine the eggs, flour, milk, syrup, baking powder, and cottage cheese. Blend until just combined, less than 30 seconds.
Heat the griddle to 350 degrees F or set a large saute pan over medium low heat. Melt the butter, and then add the batter by the spoonful and cook until lightly brown on both sides, about 5 minutes total.
Top with berry jam and serve warm.
We recommend organic ingredients when feasible.
