2 eggs size large    
2/3 cup cottage cheese, 1%   150 g
1 pinch salt   0.1 g
1 1/2 tbsp sugar   20 g
2/3 cup white flour (all purpose)   90 g
1 tsp baking powder   3 g
3 tbsp milk, partly skimmed, 2%   45 mL
2 1/2 tbsp canola oil   38 mL
2 tbsp maple syrup   30 mL
4 tbsp almonds, chopped   35 g

Before you start

Preheat the oven to its lowest temperature to keep the initial pancakes warm while you are cooking some more.


  1. In a bowl, beat together the eggs, cottage cheese, salt, and sugar. Mix until smooth, without worrying about the lumps of the cottage cheese. In another bowl, mix the flour with the baking powder.
  2. Add the milk to the first bowl and stir until creamy. Add the flour mixture and mix just until blended. Stir in half of the canola oil.
  3. Preheat a skillet over medium heat.
  4. Use 1 teaspoon of canola oil to cook each pancake. Drop batter by ¼ to ⅓ cup onto the skillet and cook until bubbles begin to break the surface and the edges no longer appear wet, about 2 to 3 min. Flip, using a thin spatula, then cook until golden on the other side, about 2 more minutes.
  5. Set aside on a plate in a warm oven while you finish the rest. Serve with the syrup and almonds.
