Over the last year I've been making small tweaks to my Aedo Family Secret Pancake Recipe, and I think I've finally perfected it. Rather than update the original post I thought it would be better to make a new one for reference. Ultimately the modifications were pretty small (less olive oil, almond milk substitution, peanut butter and a process change). Adding in the powdered peanut butter gives it a little more protein and it's just enough to give it a little bit of peanut butter and banana taste. The end result though is pretty damn great!

Regarding that process change - the recipe uses 1.5c dry oatmeal. I've started blending that into a powder before adding any other ingredients. It makes a nice difference in terms of smoothing the texture and keeping it consistent from batch to batch.

UPDATED Aedo Family Secret Pancake Recipe:
1 and a 1/2 cup dry quick-cook oatmeal (blended to flour consistency)
1/2 cup almond milk
1 cup cottage cheese
6 eggs
1/4c PBFit powdered peanut butter
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
2 bananas

  1. Place oats in blender and process until powdered
  2. Add remaining ingredients
  3. Blend until smooth consistency is reached
  4. Pour 4" cakes on griddle at medium-low heat
