Kathryn says: I love pancakes! When I saw this recipe in Health magazine, I was so curious to try it that I was in the kitchen the next morning. The texture of the pancakes reminded me of polenta, and they were a bit dry, but the maple yogurt topping and the fruit made all the difference. It was a healthy, hearty breakfast.
(for batter – makes 3 pancakes)
1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup frozen cherries and peaches
1/2 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1. Blend together the oatmeal, cottage cheese, egg, and cinnamon until smooth.
2. Heat a skillet on medium heat, and coat pan with cooking spray.
3. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the batter into the pan to make each pancake. Cook until golden brown, flip, and repeat.
4. On the side, combine yogurt and syrup.
5. Enjoy pancakes hot with maple yogurt topping.
