Tuesday Tasties No.2

Aloha, my trusty recipe readers!

This week I thought I would share with you one of my favourite weekend treats, pancakes. Now these aren't your usual pancakes, in fact, they're a much healthier version with no flour or water, plus there's not a whisk in sight.

The only equipment you need to have handy is a blender and a skillet, Ad has a tepan which is great for cooking pancakes, but don't panic if you don't have one.  

Clean & Lean Pancakes
This makes a pretty mammoth portion, we had four each on Saturday which plenty of leftovers for another (albeit larger) portion for breakfast on Monday.

You'll need:
  • Four eggs
  • 200g cottage cheese
  • 100g oats
  • A teaspoon of cinnamon
Pop all of this into your blender.
Blitz to a pulp. It should have a nice, thick consistency:
Then it's time for the fun part, cooking!  Ad normally uses about one and a half tablespoons of mix per pancake and as we're cooking on the tepan, you don't need any oil which means no extra fat getting into your body.  You need to leave them to cook a little before flipping over.
Look how pretty these are starting to look!  Once they're cooked, just pop on a plate (with some kitchen towel so they don't end up soggy!) while you cook the rest.
Now you can be super healthy and serve these with maple syrup and some fresh berries, but as it was the weekend, I had mine with some bacon and maple syrup.  I can assure you, they were delicious and didn't last very long.
Hope you enjoy this weeks edition, be sure to let me know how you get on if you try this at home!

This recipe was taken from James Duigan's Clean & Lean Cookbook. There are some incredible recipe ideas in there, especially quick and easy things which are great for a post-workout breakfast.  


  1. Oooooh I'm always looking for new/healthy pancake recipes - Can you taste the cottage cheese at all? x

    1. Nope, i was really surprised. Even without the cinnamon you can't taste it! I just use the tesco value stuff as its got less sugar/salt than the full priced stuff.
