I know there are lots of protein pancake recipes floating around in the world, but I would very like to nominate this one for one of the best. Who knew that adding my favorite Hiland Dairy Cottage Cheese would make these pancakes super moist. Plus it adds a ton of protein which will keep you full for a long time. Cottage cheese is my absolute favorite way to add healthy protein to my day.
I tend to like my pancakes a little bit sweet (shocking) and maple syrup was the trick for these. Super subtle sweetness with an incredible texture. You won’t believe there is cottage cheese in these!
Just a few ingredients and easy to make. We like to make a batch and then freeze the rest to heat up during the week.
Check out the recipe below plus the video and let me know what you think!

Super moist and sweet pancakes packed with a ton of protein from my favorite Hiland Dairy Cottage Cheese. Only a few ingredients and easy to make.
1 ½ cups Hiland Dairy Cottage Cheese (I used small curd)
2–3 Tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¾ cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, Hiland Cottage Cheese, maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk until all combined.
Add the flour, baking powder and salt to the bowl of wet ingredients and then mix again until just combined.
In a large skillet over medium heat, spray the pan with non stick cooking spray or add butter. Spoon about ¼ cup of batter onto the skillet and cook each side a few minutes each until golden brown.
Place finished pancakes on a plate and cover with a kitchen towel while you are continuing to cook the remaining batter.
Serve right away with more maple syrup and your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
