Cottage cheese oatmeal pancakes

This recipe is banging. It's super easy, yummy and, wait for it, moist! Yup, just casually throwing around the word moist right now because these pancakes are ballers. 

I found this recipe via Ambitious Kitchen and have to say was so surprised that it didn't get a 5-star rating. I eat pancakes every weekend so I'm delighted to have found such a great recipe that is high in healthy carbs, fiber and not to mention packed with over 20g of protein! Best thing about it? You throw all the ingredients in the blender! *drops mic*
