Fluffy Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Meet your new favourite, single serve, balanced pancake recipe! These pancakes are light, fluffy, and make a delicious brekkie option - did I mention they're also EASY. Topped with your favourite fruits, some yoghurt and nuts or nut butter, they have a decent amount of protein to set you up for the day and are ideal post training. Grab your frying pan and let's get cooking!



Serves 1 (easily scaled up to make more)


  • 2 rounded tablespoons of cottage cheese

  • 2 tablespoons oats

  • 1 rounded tablespoon flour

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or honey


  • Add all ingredients to a bowl and stir to combine. Leave to stand for a couple of minutes while you heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat.

  • Pour even amounts of batter to the pan, cooking in batches if necessary. I made 3 medium sized pancakes.

  • Cook on one side for 2 minutes before flipping and cooking for a further 1-2 minutes on the other side. The pancakes should be springy to the touch when they're ready.

  • Stack on a serving plate then add your toppings! Fruit, yoghurt, nuts, seeds, nut butter and cinnamon are all great options. (I used Greek yoghurt, blueberries, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon and a drizzle of maple syrup).

  • Enjoy - they really are delicious!


  • These could easily be made ahead and reheated as a great meal prep option.

  • I haven't tested this, but I'm sure you could make these gluten free by subbing the oats for gluten free flour.

  • You could swap the tablespoon of flour for protein powder if you're wanting to take the protein content up a notch.
