apple cottage cheese pancakes

It's a weekend full of deliciousness.
I had cottage cheese to finish up today, so I looked for a way to have it for breakfast and found a recipe for apple cottage cheese pancakes from the Moosewood Cookbook. I've never had a bad things from that so I cooked this up to get about 10 nice sized pancakes (which for the 2 of us pancake pigs is about right!)

2 grated apples
1 c 1% cottage cheese
3 large eggs (or 1/4c egg whites if you're feeling healthy)
2 T maple syrup
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t salt
3/4 c flour
2 t baking powder

Whisk up the eggs and add the cottage cheese and stir up. Grate the apple into the wet stuff and stir in the spices. Then toss in the flour and b.p. and mix until just mixed. If it looks too wet add a bit more flour. Then cook in a hot pan and enjoy with maple syrup.
Simple and healthy and REALLY good. Some of the best pancakes I've had in a while and totally different. Kept me full all morning. :)
