Warmer weather and protein pancakes

This weekend we had our first breakfast of the year on our deck. It’s finally warming up! And to celebrate the occasion I made Protein Pancakes. They taste great topped with honey or fresh fruit. Full of energy from our hearty breakfast we spent the rest of the day scrubbing and waxing the boat.

Ingredients:
1 cup cottage cheese
2 egg whites
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp flour (soy or other)

Beat the egg whites until until stiff peaks form. In separate bowl, mix egg yolk, cottage cheese and flour. Add the mixture to the egg whites and stir carefully until just combined. Cook just like a regular pancake, on a skillet at low-medium heat, flipping when each side becomes lightly browned. They fall apart quite easily and require a lot of finesse. I tried to cook some of them in my Aroma Oven (an early B-day present – Thanks mom!) and was a little more successful. Low heat and slow cooking is key.
