Protein Cakes

Whenever I have pancakes at breakfast, I'm always hungry a couple hours later, like mad-hungry.  I chalk it up to the lack of protein and healthy fats that I usually need to keep me satiated.  

Does this mean I'll give them up?  Absolutely NOT.  I just need to make sure my snack arsenal is full and ready to be attacked at a moments notice.

This morning I think I've solved my own problem.  Cottage Cheese Pancakes.  Full of protein and happily ready to accept a maple syrup bath.  I've tried making cottage cheese pancakes in the past, without luck.  Some had no flour, some had oats, all came out a with a "meh" on the pancake rating scale.  These ones however didn't follow that same course.   Made using my food processor, the batter was smooth and the pancakes came out fluffy and moist.  Winner.
