Refuel Recipes: Oatmeal Cottage Cheese Pancakes with Cinnamon Sauteed Pears

We’ll spare you the graphic recounting of what happened in last night’s episode of Girl Makes Huge Life Decisions on “Live” Television for All The World To See, Plus a Rose and get right to it. Because nobody should have to wait to make these pancakes. Initially, I was a little skeptical as I am not the biggest fan of cottage cheese on its own. However, these turned out really great. The cottage cheese makes the pancakes light and fluffy and the vanilla adds a tiny hint of sweetness and flavor. They are the perfect vessel for your favorite pancake topping and are quick and easy to make.
