Cheese Danish Pancakes!

Cheese Danish pancakes

After claims on a recipe that their pancakes tasted like cheese danishes, i tried it and was disappointed to find out that-THEY LIED! so i was excited to take up the challenge to formulate an easy pancake recipe that tastes just like a cheese danish- but much healthier. I was even more excited when i took the first bite of my experiment and found great success! These pack a ton of protein! Make them right, and they actually do taste like cheese danishes.

In a bowl, with a hand whisk, whip:

1/2c reduced fat cream cheese

1 1/2 tsp pure lemon juice

1tsp vanilla extract

1 large egg yolk (save the white in a seperate bowl for later)

set mixture aside.

In a blender, blend well:

1c rolled oats

1c cottage cheese

1/2c egg whites

1/4c any type of milk (I used soymilk)

1 average- sized banana;  freeze the banana overnight (make sure you peel it before freezing it) first, then fully thaw it in the microwave before adding it to the blender; the freezing changes its consistency.

pour the blender’s contents onto a pancake skillet like you would normal pancakes; the batter makes about 8 medium- size panckes. while each pancake is cooking on the first side, place an equal spoonful of the cream cheese mixture into the middle of the raw side of each pancake before flipping them. this may require some  mad skillz.

please don’t try to cook these until they are “done” in the middle, because they don’t have flour, it isn’t going to happen- you’ll just burn them. they are supposed to be a little “gooey.” Who likes fluffy cheese danishes anyways. I would also add that i strongly recommend using Philadelphia cream cheese, especially if your going to use fat free. I once made them w/ the cheaper store brand and they were nowhere near as good.

I just put maple syrup on mine, because the pancakes have so much of their own flavor. you can get creative. maybe cherries would be good- like a cherry- cheese danish (hmm?) ENJOY!
