Green – syn free (without maple syrup)
Extra Easy – syn free (without maple syrup)
Original – syn free (without maple syrup)
I have seen various recipes floating around the internet for cottage cheese pancakes, most calling for flour. I love my American Style Pancakes recipe, but wanted to try and come up with a version that is syn free and is great for saving your Healthy Extra B choice for later in the day, I find that I am often using it at breakfast, and sometimes at lunch you just fancy a sandwich or similar and end up having to syn the bread. I wasn’t sure how they would work out without adding any flour to the mix, but I was really surprised when I sat down to eat them this morning, with some fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup (2 syns). You can of course just serve with fruit, if you want to keep this recipe syn free. But no pancakes in Canada can be served without a drizzle of maple syrup. It’s the law. Okay I may of made that up, but I seriously can’t do without my maple syrup.
- 100g of fat free cottage cheese (I used a small curd variety)
- 2 egg whites
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tsp of vanilla essence
- 1 teaspoon of stevia
- Frylight or Pam spray
- Fresh fruit of your choice (I used mixed berries)
- Maple Syrup (2 syns) – optional
Whisk the egg whites until you have stiff peaks. Add the stevia and whisk again for a few secs just to combine.
In a separate bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, egg yolk, and vanilla essence and then fold in the egg whites, until ingredients are combined and you have a batter type mix.
Heat a non stick frying pan over a medium heat. (It is really important not to have your frying pan too hot or these will stick and burn).
Spray your frying pan with some Frylight or Pam spray and add a couple of spoonfuls of the batter mix for each pancake. (I cooked 2 pancakes at a time and then stacked them once cooked).
Once all pancakes are cooked, top with your berries and the optional Maple syrup, if using this.
