  • Total Time
This recipe makes about 12 pancakes
Ingredients:

• ⅓ to ½ cup whole grain pancake/waffle mix*
• 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
• 2 eggs, lightly beaten
• 1 ripe large banana
• 1 tablespoon butter
• 1 cup thinly sliced fresh strawberries
• 2 to 3 teaspoons maple syrup (optional)

*Depending on the brand you use, you may need to add more mix if the batter seems too thin.

Preparation:

In a blender, combine cottage cheese, eggs, banana, pancake mix, and butter until everything is well combined and smooth.

Liberally coat a skillet with nonstick oil spray and warm over medium heat. Ladle about ¼ cup batter per pancake and top each pancake with 3-4 thinly sliced strawberries. Cook on each side for 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly golden brown, and the centers are cooked through. Serve with an optional dollop of vanilla yogurt or a drizzle of real maple syrup on top.

Makes about 12 medium pancakes

. Nutrition provided for 4 pancakes.

*If adding 2 teaspoons of maple syrup, add an extra 20 calories and 3 grams added sugar per serving.
