Cottage cheese pancakes only contain 3 simple ingredients: cottage cheese, eggs, and flour. If you're looking for a specific type of flour to use feel free to sub it out for all-purpose flour.
These pancakes are not your typical pancake made with flour, buttermilk, and eggs. The cottage cheese gets processed in a food processor until it's smooth and it almost resembles buttermilk. A blender will work as well if you don't have a food processor. They are low carb and keto-friendly if a specific type of flour is used. PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH THESE PANCAKES. They can take a while to cook on each side and might not look like they are done. Use a medium high heat and spray the pan each time.
Find a good sugar-free maple syrup to top the pancakes off with. Lankato Sugar-Free maple syrup is a good brand or so is Maple Groves Farm Sugar Free syrup which can be found at Target or Wal-Mart.

Can you make them with a gluten - free flour like coconut flour or almond flour?
Barbara Jones says
Can you make and freeze these pancakes?
Keto Mom says
I would imagine you could sub coconut flour or almond flour for wheat flour, correct?
Excellent recipe. For easier flipping, I waited for one side to cook 2 min, 30 seconds. Attempting to flip the pancake any sooner, resulted in a wrinkled pancake. I also added a cup of blueberries to the mix.
Anyone tried this for waffles?!
