Oatmeal Cottage Cheese Pancakes Recipe

This humble cheese is taking over the plates. There is a lot of cottage cheese flying around and the usage is quite high. Grilled and barbecued cottage cheese cubes are amazing. Make a curry out of it or use it in a salad. Right from stuffing for sandwiches to making biryanis, panner or cottage cheese is every where. There are cottage cheese desserts too. Panner jalebi is one, deep fried cottage cheese dunked in sugar syrup. Heavy breathing.

Paneer pancakes is on the other end of the spectrum. This one is on the healthier side and it is really easy to make.  Throw all the ingredients in a blender, make a batter and start pouring the pancakes on a pan. It is that simple. No fuss, just good healthy food. We have oats, banana and cottage cheese. I prefer adding a ripe banana, gives a nice aroma. When there is banana then adding vanilla & cinnamon takes it to a whole new level. Play around with the ingredient, have a healthy breakfast. If it looks too healthy, then be generous with the syrup, include some choco chips and chocolate sauce. Not a lot of equipment is required. Just a blender & a skillet
