    Things To Grab

    • Hy-Vee nonstick spray
    • Griddle or large skillet
    • Blender

    Directions

    1. Heat a lightly greased griddle or large skillet over medium-low heat.

    2. Place egg whites in a blender. Blend 1 to 2 minutes on HIGH speed or until white and foamy. Add cottage cheese, milk, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, lemon zest and juice, and pancake and waffle mix to the blender. Pulse until just combined, scraping down sides as needed.

    3. Drop 1/4 cup portions onto hot griddle to form pancakes. Cook until bubbles begin to break on the surface. Using a spatula, carefully flip pancakes. Continue cooking until pancakes are lightly browned on both sides and cooked through. Repeat with remaining batter.

    4. If desired, serve pancake stacks topped with butter and fresh fruit; drizzle with honey.
