Pancakes that are full of protein and great flavors. The oatmeal and cottage cheese make for a great texture.


  • 1/3 cup old fashioned oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/3 cup chopped apples, reserving about 1 Tablespoon for topping
  • maple syrup and pepitas for topping


  1. Place all ingredients in a deep bowl or cup. Give the ingredients a good stir to combine everything then blend with a immersion blender (or a food processor) until the batter is well combined and a smooth, thick consistency.
  2. Heat pan or griddle to low-medium heat and spray with non-stick spray.
  3. Scoop out about a quarter cup of batter at a time and pour onto pan. You should be able to make about 4 small pancakes.
  4. Cook until little bubbles form and the edges of the pancakes are solid enough to put a spatula underneath. Flip the pancakes and cook for one to two additional minutes.
  5. Place on a plate, sprinkle chopped apple and pepitas over the pancakes, drizzle with maple syrup and serve.
