Drizzle these pancakes with maple syrup or your favorite fruit sauce. They can also be served with fresh fruit and a dusting of confectioners' sugar.


  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¾ cup low-fat (1 percent) cottage cheese

  • cup milk

  • 2 large egg whites

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 5 teaspoons vegetable oil


  1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir in cottage cheese, milk, egg whites, and vanilla.

  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium. Working in batches, drop cottage cheese mixture by 1/4 cupfuls into pan (2 or 3 at a time).

  3. Cook until bottoms are set and tops have small bubbles, about 1 minute. Turn pancakes and cook until just firm in the center, 1 to 3 minutes more. Repeat, using remaining 3 teaspoons oil for the other batches.
