Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Are you ready for the fluffiest pancake ever?  I adapted a recipe from the Whole Foods Market site - they have lots of great recipes! 

Cottage Cheese Pancakes
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
4 large eggs
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp agave nectar
2 tbsp canola oil
sliced fresh fruit for serving
optional: cooking spray

Heat your griddle over medium-high heat.  If you have a really good non-stick griddle or frying pan, then you can probably forego the cooking spray, but if you're unsure use the cooking spray - don't want any burnt pancakes!!

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon & salt.  In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cottage cheese, milk, agave and canola oil.

Slowly add the dried ingredients into the wet ingredients.  Mix really well and you're ready to start cooking!

Carefully spoon the batter onto the griddle and cook for a couple minutes, until golden brown. Then flip!

I was worried about the little cottage cheese chunks being really obvious and grossing out the kid but they totally melt and I think are what contributes to the fluffiness of these pancakes!!

You should get about 12 pancakes out of this batter - they turn out so creamy and fluffy - I can't get over it - never have made pancakes quite like this before - they were gobbled uplike nobody's business!
