  • 2 cups 300 g dry curd cottage cheese (I used 0.8%)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. 20 g erythritol/stevia or sweetener of choice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp. or 15g rice flour or any other flour, plus about 2 Tbsp. for dredging
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp. raisins
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut or light vegetable oil for frying


  • In a large mixing bowl, add the cottage cheese, egg, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Using a hand blender, mix just until the cheese mixture is almost smooth. (You can also use a food processor or mash the cottage cheese into little pieces with a fork).
  • Add 3 tablespoons of flour and ½ teaspoon of baking powder and stir with a spatula just until combined. Stir in raisins. The dough should be very soft, but should not stick to your hands.
  • Place remaining 2 tablespoons of flour on a medium plate. Scoop out the cheese mixture with a tablespoon or a cookie scoop and place into the plate with the flour. Form it into a ball and roll in the flour. Press the ball on the top to make a small patty. With hands, remove excess flour and set aside your pancake. Repeat this process until the cheese mixture is gone.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet on low-medium, brush with the oil. Place the pancakes into the preheated skillet and cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden.
  • Transfer to a platter and serve with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
