This was such a strange weekend. Other than going to Bed Bath & Beyond to buy a new food processor (I broke one that a follower sent me 🙁 ) wherein I was the only person in the store. I literally walked in, walked to the aisle where the food processors were, picked the one I wanted, walked to the register, paid and was back in my car in less than five minutes.
So naturally I spend a lot of time in my kitchen. Although I did give up the space for Jacob to make his famous soup – you can check it out here. It’s chock full of onions but his broth is amazeballs.
Since I’ve had my Butcher Box for the last four weeks, I’ve only spent $91 at the grocery store in those weeks. I am still doing a #pantrychallenge – basically using the stuff I have on hand instead of going out and buying more stuff. I still haven’t figured out how to organize my pantry, and it frustrates Hannah to no end. She basically thinks I have too much stuff and well, she’s right!
These cottage cheese pancakes were created using a pantry staple – oats! Mariano‘s was fully stocked yesterday. I was shocked because Hannah and Jacob went to Walmart on Saturday and sent me pictures of rows upon rows of empty shelves. Especially the water and paper goods aisles.
I saw people post pictures that the only proteins left in their store was chicken livers – ew! Mariano’s was fully stocked!
So I was able to pick up blueberries for these pancakes.
Cottage Cheese Blueberry Pancakes
A great way to use a pantry staple – oats! These cottage cheese blueberry pancakes are hearty – and all three are only 2 points on the WW #teampurple.
- 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup oats (I used quick)
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 tablespoons self-rising flour
- 1 tablespoon Truvia
- pinch of salt
Put everything in a blender or food processor. Each pancakes was 1/3 cup of batter. This recipe is for one serving, so adjust accordingly.
These are so hearty, one is plenty with some fruit on the side and a hard boiled egg for a delicious breakfast.
My office is still open. All the schools are closed for the corona virus, my sisters office is closed until April 4. All bars and restaurants are reduced to carry out only. So crazy. Be safe out there!
Make it a great day!
