Apple Cinammon Topped Protein Pancakes

My husband took his LSAT yesterday. Woohoo!! To celebrate I wanted to surprise him with a great breakfast to congratulate him. This is a great recipe for breakfast or desert, and it is really easy to make. It kind of reminds me of apple pie, but without all the fat or sugar.

Thanks to Jupiter6, from OH, for this great recipe.

I hope you all enjoy it.

Ingredients

Pancakes:
1/2 cup egg beaters
1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese (I used 4% instead for a creamier texture)
4 tbsp wheat flour
several shakes of cinnamon
4 packs splenda (I used Truvia instead)

Cream Cheese Spread:
4 oz fat free cream cheese
2 heaping spoons of greek yogurt
splash of SF Caramel Syrup
shake of cinnamon
4 packets Splenda

Apple topping:
1/3 cup Comstock No Sugar Added Apple Pie Filling
generous shake of cinnamon
dollop of sugar free whipped cream



Instructions

1. Warm up apples in microwave

2. Make cream cheese spread-- mix ingredients in blender


3. Make pancakes-- mix ingredients in blender.

4. Preheat pan on medium. Add a small amount of butter or cooking spray. Let butter melt and begins to foam. Pour batter into pan and cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Wait until edges are cooked and little bubbles pop, then turn and cook for an additional minute.-- makes 8 small 3 inch pancakes.

Final Product:

Enjoy!!!

Can you taste the cottage cheese in these? I hate that stuff and it just gags me but I've been craving pancakes like crazy! I'm about 5 weeks out, so I was just wondering if this was something I could try?

Actually, you didn't know it had cottage cheese, you would have never guessed
