Cottage Cheese Pancakes - Breakfast Recipe

These pancakes were my final try and I was excited to see how they would go over with Kenya. Six pancakes into his breakfast (no exaggeration, SIX), he asked, "what kind of pancakes are these mommy?" It was as if I had gotten caught. I stopped in my tracks and hesitantly mumbled, "cottage cheese pancakes". He just looked at me and said "they're really good," and he's viewed cottage cheese differently ever since. Just goes to show you when it comes to food, don't give up on something you believe your kids will ultimately love and remember, honesty is always the best policy!
