Oatmeal Pancakes the Loser Way

More snow and howling winds…

God with a snowblower drives along top of a cloud, sending snow down...  Robert Mankoff


We got another 8-inches of snow yesterday.  It’s snowing now, this morning, with another 1 to 3-inches in the forecast for today, and more predicted for tomorrow and Friday!

OK, enough already, snow and wind gods!

It’s a good morning for pancakes and this recipe intrigued from the minute I heard about it.  I really like oatmeal and cottage cheese, but pancakes made with those ingredients ~ couldn’t imagine.  

It was surprising!  They were actually pretty tasty!

Of course, I put a pat of butter and drizzled a little syrup over the top.  I don’t know if that’s “The Biggest Loser” way or not, but after all, they’re pancakes!  And I’ll make them again!

By the way, you should seriously consider purchasing a Ninja Master Prep, if you don’t already own one.  Over the years, I’ve bought more food processors than I care to mention, and very rarely use any of them. 

Then, Bubba, my older son, gave me a Ninja one day, telling me I wouldn’t believe how great it is. He was so right!  It's set of double blades allows it to  evenly chop, mince, blend, dice, and puree in an instant, without turning food into mush, and crushes ice in a flash.

It’s powerful, just like a Ninja, easy to use and clean.  It has a permanent spot on my kitchen counter, taking up little space, unlike any food processor I own. The Ninja Master Prep is now my favorite hassle-free kitchen gadget!*

*This is just my opinion of the product.

  1. Where can I get a Ninja, and where can I get some of these pancakes right now?

  2. Hum, oatmeal and cottage cheese
    not sure about this.

    M :)

  3. Val, I'm not sure since you're in Canada, but Amazon carries it online, and it sells in Target and similar stores here. Then you can try the pancakes! I hope this helps you! Good luck!

    Melinda, I thought the same at first. lol!

  4. I don't believe I have ever made pancakes. I like having them made for me. But the mention of Splenda caught my eye. I am a fan of Splenda.

  5. We had about 1/4 of an inch of snow (and other stuff) and it's above 40 degrees and melting. I have a Cuisineart processor that I use all the time. It's thirty years old!! I have a good recipe for cottage cheese pancakes but not with oatmeal. I think these look good--especially swimming in butter and maple syrup!


  6. Stephen, there you go! I'm all for Splenda too.

    Bonnie, you lucked out there! It has been snowing all day, not a lot of accumulation, thankfully. I'm wondering about your pancakes, I'll be looking for more recipes with cottage cheese.

  7. I just love anything with oatmeal in it and I have all the ingredients so guess what I am having for breakfast in the morning!

  8. These look delish, so fluffy. Interesting ingredients. Thanks for sharing:)

  9. Pam, Sorry about the snow! We don't miss it, that's for sure... Here, where we live in East Tennessee, we haven't even had an inch of snow all winter! Last winter we had 9" all season...and it melted right away. My wife doesn't like pancakes, so maybe I can convince her to try these! Thanks for the recipe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  10. I always wondered if they were good...now I'll try them!

  11. I'm not sure about cottage cheese in my pancakes either.. but I'd be willing to give them a shot.. they look fantastic!!!

  12. Pancakes look lovely. Ninja processor? hmm..gotta see if they have this over here.

  13. Mmmmm think that looks so yummy. Keep warm. Diane

  14. If the pancakes themselves are healthier than you should have no guilt about a little butter and syrup! major yum.

  15. Totally intrigued by that processor! It actually looks like something I'd use!
    Pancakes look good, too - but I can't get cottage cheese... LOL

I am happy to hear what you have to say, and appreciate your taking the time to stop by and leave a comment.
Keep smiling!

Having passed the grain stalls they came to the fritanguerías – the fried stalls – where sweaty, plump women dropped thick pieces of fish into enormous frying pans. Laid out on the wooden trays that served as counters, the fillets of fried fish immediately cooled to take on an almost mineral appearance while thick slices of fried plantain – patacones – were heaped around them.
