Ambies Protein Pancakes With Blueberry Sauce

So, back in the day my mom use to make these amazing crepe-ish pancakey things. I remember always being excited when she made em cause they were sooooo good! She usually made some sort of fruit to go in or on top of them. My sister however ended up liking them for a completely different reason. She of course, being the athlete that she was, liked them for the high amount of protein they had. So here I am a million (ok maybe not a million) years later making them for my family. I did of course have to tweak the recipe to make it even more healthy. :) Super Tasty! (disclaimer: these are far more a crepe than a pancake)


1 Cup Cottage Cheese
1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/4 Cup  Organic Skim Milk
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
6  Organic Eggs
1/4 C Organic Kefir (you could use plain Greek yogurt here...Vanilla would be good too I bet!)

Blend in food processor for one minute or a blender on high one minute (just stir it down once if you use a blender.)

Now, to cook them, I always butter the pan between each one. They are really thin and fall apart easily if you don't spray or butter the pan at least a little.
Place pan over medium low heat. butter it a tiny but. Put two small or one large ladle full of batter into your skillet. Swirl it around to coat the bottom of the pan with a thin layer of batter. (you make one at a time) Wait until it bubbles up a little before you try to flip it. The first one or two usually break a little....No worries it gets easier.

Blueberry Sauce

1lb Bag Frozen Blueberries
3/4C water
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 Tbs Raw Honey
2 Heaping Tbs Corn Starch

Put blueberries in sauce pan with water, cinnamon and honey. Bring to a boil. Add Corn starch to about 4Tbs of cold water and mix together till lumps are gone then pour into the blueberries. Bring back to a boil and then simmer for about 5 min. Stir periodically to keep it from burning. Sauce should thicken to syrup consistency.

I usually put butter or cream cheese on the crepe/pancake and then pour the blueberry sauce over it. My sister likes it with peanut butter and some people like it with maple syrup. To each his own...:)


  1. Yum-o girlie! Seriously, I love your blog. I'm telling you, you are definitely talented with this food stuff my little spazerella! :)

  2. Kefir is a probiotic/yogurty-ish drink. It is super good for you. It is really tasty if you get the fruit ones, but if you drink the plain one without putting it in anything, it tastes like sour cream....grossness! lol! I use the plain for cooking/baking and flavored for drinking! :)
