Cottage Cheese Apple Pancakes
Is it just me, or do the pages in your cookbooks with the recipes you use the most always end up looking like this? If you’ve been reading for awhile, you’ll know that I have a thing for Mollie Katzen’s recipes, and this copy of The Moosewood Cookbook was the first cookbook I ever bought. As you can see, it’s well loved.
I buy a lot of things in bulk in order to save money, so there are often times when I’ve got a large quantity of something on the verge of expiring that I need to use up quickly. This morning was one of those times, as I had a big tub of cottage cheese in the refrigerator that was rapidly approaching its demise. Not to worry, we just so happen to have an abundance of apples at the moment as well (sorry, Phelan), so a nice batch of Cottage Cheese Apple Pancakes was just the answer.
These pancakes are very light and fluffy, with a bit of crunch from the addition of finely chopped walnuts. They are packed with protein (thanks to the walnuts, the cottage cheese and four eggs), and I usually use whole wheat flour which makes them even more healthy.
We were out of maple syrup this morning, so I opened a jar of Pear Honey to use instead, and it turned out to be a great combination.
