Place milk, eggs, and cottage cheese into the blender FIRST. Add in bananas, oats, baking powder, and cinnamon. Blend until the batter is completely smooth and incorporated.
Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with butter or cooking spray and heat over medium heat.
Drop batter by ¼ cup onto skillet.
Cook until bubbles appear on top. Flip pancakes and cook until golden brown on the other side.
Wipe skillet clean and repeat with more cooking spray and remaining batter.
Serve as desired with berries, syrup, nut butter, or sliced banana.
It is best to place the liquid ingredients in the blender first, as this will help the blender to work more efficiently.
If your blender is not powerful, it may help to blend your oats to a fine powder BEFORE making this batter. Simply place your dry oats in a blender and pulse until broken down. Remove from blender, add in wet ingredients and then add in blended oats and proceed with the recipe.
Any variety of milk works for this recipe.
If you don't want to use cottage cheese, Greek yogurt will work. However, the pancakes won't be as fluffy or tender.
Be sure to use certified gluten-free oats if you need these to be 100% free from gluten.
Feel free to add blueberries or chocolate chip to batter.
