 1 cup (225g) cottage cheese or plain Greek yogurt

 5 eggs
 2 tbsp coconut oil
For sweet cakes
 2 tsp cinnamon
 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
For salty cakes

Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blitz together until smooth.


Heat ¼ of the coconut oil in a large frying pan over low-medium heat, pour about ¼ cup of batter per pancake, and repeat until the pan is filled.


Cook until you start to see bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes, about 1-2 minutes. Then, flip and cook for another minute or until golden brown on both sides.


Repeat this process until all the batter has been used. Top the pancakes with your favorite toppings (see serving suggestions below).


Consider these serving suggestions:

- Fruit: banana, strawberries, raspberries, pear, figs, cherries, pineapple (fresh or frozen)
- Veggies: spinach, arugula, bell peppers, mushroom, tomatoes
- Toppings; chia seeds, sesame seeds, fresh basil, cilantro
- Sweeteners: maple syrup or honey
