You have got to try these!
These remind me of crepes, but so much better! These are a bit thicker and softer than your traditional crepe. If it seems weird to put cottage cheese in it don’t worry. I was a bit sceptic at first, but I would not do make it any other way now. The smooth, silky batter makes the most delicious pancakes I have had in a long time. They are easy and taste amazing. Just throw everything in the blender and then cook them in a skillet for just a couple of minutes like you would a traditional crepe.
Put your favorite filling inside and roll them up ( hence the rollup pancake name ). You can use jam, jelly or even a cream cheese mixture like you would for stuffed French toast, or our favorite at the moment nutella. You can even add a little cut up berries. This has become our favorite breakfast! Serve it with a bunch of mixed berries and you will be giving your family a bunch of deliciousness with all the vitamins and good for you stuff too! Right now is the perfect time for mixed berries too!
Whole Wheat Rollup Blender Pancakes
Note: If you do not use all of these you can cool them and stack them. Put them in a freezer safe bag and they will keep for a couple of months in the freezer. Just thaw and reheat in skillet or microwave.
Ingredients- yields 12 pancakes
1 cup of lowfat cottage cheese
6 large eggs
1/2 cup of whole wheat flour ( or flour of your choice )
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 cup of oil ( coconut oil is my preference but any will do )
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
2 tablespoons of sugar
1. Combine all the ingredients in the blender and process until smooth.
2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and lightly spray with cooking spray. Ladle in 1/4 cup of batter in the skillet. Spining the skillet to get a 6 to 8 inch circle. It does not have to be perfect.
3. Cook for 30 seconds to a minute and then flip with a wide spatula and do the same on the other side.
4. Slide the pancake on a plate and cook remaining batter. You might have to spray cooking spray every couple of pancakes or so.
5. Serve with the filling of your choice.
