Blueberry Cottage Cheese Pancakes

2 Comments

Source: This recipe was adapted from a Cinnamon Peach Cottage Cheese Pancakes found on the AllRecipes website.  This is my adaptation using blueberries and/or blackberries, Blueberry Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Notes: Before going Gluten-Free, I just used whole wheat flour. After many different variations to make the recipe healthier, I’m happy with this recipe, albeit it’s a bit more complicated. I use the substitutions in BOLD and all the Optional ingredients. I’m pretty much set but I still tinker with the sugar & oil substitutions. Sometimes I eat them plain or I serve them with maple syrup or freezer jam. It’s a delicate pancake and a bit hard to work with. It’s easy to fix that by increasing the GF flours to make the pancake a bit sturdier. But I prefer the taste and lightweight texture of using Almond Flour and extra Almond Milk (thickened with Chia Seeds).

It tastes the best with wild blackberries but the thorny bushes & short season prevents me from having a year’s supply on hand. We buy 40-50 lbs of blueberries from a Richmond Farm at Blundell and Sidaway.  In the off-season, frozen berries are available for sale $15/10lbs for Roccoca and larger BlueCrop varieties.  Also their farm includes an Estate Winery which sells wines, jams, syrup, bees wax… http://www.sanduzwines.com/

You need to use a GF Flour Blend so you have enough structure to flip the pancakes.  My favourite blend is Gluten Free Gigi’s Flour Blend.

You need to use high quality or newer non-stick pans or you’ll have a mess on your hands. I make one 7-8″ inch pancake per pan. The Futura roti pan I bought at an East Indian grocery works great. These pancakes take a bit of time as they’re a bit finicky. If you don’t do mornings , like me….make the whole batch and store in the fridge or freezer.

  2. I’m hooked on frozen Cranberries in addition to the Blueberries now. Slather Almond Butter and Raspberry Jam in between 2 pancakes…the closest thing to having CAKE for breakfast !
