Arrggghhblllrggghh paaaaancakes  
I made cottage cheese pancakes earlier. What's that, you say? G-funk COOKED? Yes. These things are so easy that even I can make them, and the messed-up ones can be salvaged. Heck, I almost burnt one, and it still tasted fine.

The following recipe is adapted from the one on Krista's cottage cheese page. I use a lot of Splenda because my cottage cheese of choice (Organic Valley low-fat) is tart and I like my pancakes to be sweet. I'd suggest experimenting to find the appropriate level of sweetening for you.

Mix up the following ingredients in a blender, adding them in the order listed:

4 eggs
1 1/2 cups of cottage cheese
8 packets of Splenda
A teaspoon or two of vanilla extract (did I mention that I love vanilla, too?)
1 1/2 cups of raw oatmeal

Since this batter is rather eggy, it cooks up fast. Medium heat works well for me. Flip the pancakes when you see bubbles form on the top, and they should be done about 30 seconds afterward. You can refrigerate the leftovers and heat them up nicely in the microwave later. I put a napkin on top of them and keep nuking them for 30 seconds on high and flipping them over until they're hot. Sprinkle some Splenda and cinnamon on top, and they taste like dessert. ^_^

They are...and earlier tonight, I ate the last of them...and I'm currently too loopy to make more. Blergh. Perhaps I shall make more tomorrow.

me and cottage cheese do not get along so well. But me and cream cheese, do.

Your icon is truly mexcellent. You should get a prize for that. ^_^

At any rate...is it the taste of cottage cheese that bothers you? As long as you throw in enough sweetener, you could never tell that it was an ingredient in these pancakes. In that case, they might get along well with you.
