Cottage Cheese Pancakes

These are delicious and a nice break from flour-based pancakes. I have noticed a nice assortment of organic and high-quality brands of cottage cheese at the coop, and had sort of forgotten about keeping it on hand. A couple spoonfuls are a great pick-me-up in the afternoon or before dinner is ready.

This recipe was found on the internet, with a few adjustments, but this is how I did it:

1 cup oatmeal*
1 cup cottage cheese
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon

*I ran the oatmeal through the food processor first to break it down a little - if you have the quick-cooking variety you shouldn't have to do this first.

Put all ingredients into food processor, blast a few times, and set aside. It will get thicker from standing.

On a medium hot non-stick or lightly oiled griddle, make silver dollar-size pancakes; turn when slightly bubbly. Cook a little longer on side two.

Serve with your favorite topping. I used cooked apples (baked ahead of time with a wee bit of sugar and cinnamon). They are a lot more filling than they look!
