I keep telling Erin that I will post a couple of pancake recipes that I started using the past few months so here they are.
Rice Pancakes From Hillbillyhousewife.com
1-1/2 cups leftover Cooked Rice, white or brown
2 cups buttermilk or yogurt or soy yogurt or Sour Soy
2 cups white or whole wheat flour or half each (I also like to use Spelt Flour)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 medium eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
Use a fork or a potato masher to mash the rice for a minute or two (I put a little buttermilk or yogurt in during mashing it makes it easier). After the rice has been mashed a little, then add the rest of the ingredients. Use a whisk to stir everything up until it makes a light and creamy batter. If you use yogurt as your milk product, the batter may be very thick, depending on the thickness of your yogurt. Sometimes, I add water to the batter to thin it out enough for frying (You will definitely need to add water I think I usually end up adding about 3/4 cup).
Fry these in a hot skillet or griddle, turning them when they are brown on the bottom. I use 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake to keep them small, and manageable. They are so tender, that frying big ones is a little tricky, so keep them smallish to be on the safe side.
These are very tender and delicious pancakes. This makes a large amount of pancakes so unless you want left overs you may want to divide the recipe in half. My kids love these pancakes I think maybe they are their favorite and you can use healthy brown rice. Top with butter and real maple syrup and add fruit if you like, super yummy!
Fluffy Cottage Cheese Pancakes
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup flour (I use wheat or spelt flour)
3-4 tablespoons sugar (I use rapadura or sucanat)
In a mixing bowl, combine the egg, cottage cheese, flour, and sugar together with a fork. It will look very strange at this point unlike other pancake batters but this is normal. Drop from tablespoon and cook on heated griddle, I cook them in coconut oil but you could use butter too. This recipe will make around 16 small pancakes. These are super yummy and since you put sugar in the batter no syrup necessary which makes them easy to pick up and eat on the go. They are really easy to make, very tasty, high in protein, and my kids love them.
