Ingredients

  • 1⁄3 cup quick oatmeal
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup small curd cottage cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 3⁄4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. butter

Directions

  • In a blender or food processor, grind oatmeal until fine; remove. Add eggs, cottage cheese, and orange juice to blender and blend until mixed. Add oatmeal, flour, baking soda, sugar, and salt and blend just until smooth.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat until a drop of water sizzles on it. Add butter and melt; spread evenly. Pour batter by 1⁄4 cup portions onto skillet, four at a time. Cook until edges look dry and bubbles form on surface and begin to break, about 3 to 4 minutes. Carefully turn with a spatula and cook for 2 minutes on second side. Serve immediately.
