  2. Start by placing the oats, cottage cheese, eggs, banana, protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon (if desired), and a pinch of salt in a blender or food processor. Blend until you have a smooth batter.
  3. Preheat Your Griddle or Pan:
  4. Heat a non-stick griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Add a small amount of cooking oil or use non-stick cooking spray to prevent sticking.
