Apple Cheese Pancakes

Apple Cheese Pancakes

Fluffy cinnamon apply pancakes with cottage cheese


4 servings


1 cup cottage or ricotta cheese
1 heaping, packed cup grated apple (any kind but red delicious)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds or chopped almonds (optional)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or more)
dash of nutmeg
4 eggs, separated*
1/2 teaspoon salt
Maple syrup, sour cream or yogurt, fresh fruit, or cinnamon sugar, for serving


1. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except egg whites.

2. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites with electric mixer until stiff. Fold gently into batter.

3. Fry on a greased (butter or oil) griddle or skillet at a medium to medium-low temperature until browned on both sides. Pancakes will cook slowly -- about 10 minutes on each side.

4. Serve with maple syrup, sour cream or yogurt, fresh fruit, or cinnamon sugar.

Tammy's Review: 

These pancakes are delicious!! Very hearty, flavorful, and just the right sweetness. :) We ate ours with strawberry topping. They did take a while to cook... I'll use my big griddle instead of a skillet next time. :) My rating: 10/10.
