Cottage Cheese Pancakes with Banana & Walnuts

Happy Thursday! Not much to report here except that I had a delicious breakfast this morning. I wanted something different so cottage cheese pancakes it was.

Cottage Cheese Pancakes with Banana & Walnuts
1/2 cup oat bran
1/2c low fat cottage cheese
1/8 cup unsweetened, vanilla almond milk
1/8 cup egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
1 small banana
1 tbsp walnuts, ground
1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup

I mixed together the oat bran, cottage cheese, almond milk, egg whites, vanilla, and half of the banana. I didn't use a blender for this. Last time I made my single serving, it was a pain to get the batter out of the blender. We have a huge blender, so the small amount of batter gets lost in the blades. I just made sure to mash everything really well. I had a problem with the pancakes sticking. I don't know why this happened because I used a nonstick pan AND nonstick spray. The pancakes didn't look pretty, but they tasted delicious. Only four are pictured above. One of the completely fell apart so I ate it while the others cooked. I topped the pancakes with the other half of the banana, sliced, ground walnuts, and maple syrup. Not only was the breakfast delicious, but I am stuffed! That's a good thing because I need this breakfast to hold me over for awhile. 

My flight leaves early tomorrow morning so today is the last day I can get everything done. I need to go to Target, Barnes & Nobles, study, workout, pack, hang out with the boy, and lots of other little things. It's going to be a busy day!

That italian dressing sounds great. How do you make it (amounts etc) and store it? I have no idea how to make a salad dressing, but would love to try. Thanks and chicago sounds like it will be fun!
