There’s no need to top off these flapjacks with sugary syrup—they’re sweet enough as is thanks to the bananas and pecans. They’re gluten-free, plus they get a shot of protein from the cottage cheese. And compared to a regular order of silver dollars, which could set you back about 650 calories, this stack is a steal at just 162. Enjoy!

  • Total Time
This recipe makes 5 Servings
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • ½ cup fat-free cottage cheese
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup pecan halves, toasted and roughly chopped
Preparation:

Combine all ingredients, except pecans, in a blender and process until smooth.

Spray a griddle with nonstick oil spray and warm over medium-high heat.

Carefully ladle batter onto the griddle to form about 20 three-inch pancakes (about 2 tablespoons batter per pancake). Sprinkle a few pecan pieces onto each and cook until bubbles form throughout the pancakes, about 30 seconds. Flip and cook until golden brown.

Makes about 20 mini pancakes; 4 pancakes per serving
