Serves: 4


  • 1⁄2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 1⁄4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 1⁄2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 cup blueberries


  • Add flour, salt, olive oil, milk, vanilla, eggs, and cottage cheese to the jar of a blender. Blend until smooth. Add blueberries, but do not blend.
  • Spray a pan with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium heat. Pour 1⁄4-cup portions of batter onto hot pan to form pancakes. As the pan heats up, adjust the temperature to prevent the pancakes from becoming too dark.
