PCOS Friendly Recipes: 3 High Protein Recipes with Cottage Cheese
Updated: Jan 14
Looking for PCOS diet foods that are high in protein? Cottage cheese is the food you are looking for!
That’s right, cottage cheese is back ba-by!
Cottage cheese can be used in creamy sauces, desserts, and as a spread! Here are 3 recipes that can diversify your meals & snacks:
Cottage Cheese Pancakes
My favourite part of this recipe is that the pancakes do not absorb all of the syrup so the flavour isn’t lost! These pancakes are amazing hot or cold - I have also spread peanut butter & topped them with strawberries as a snack!
1 cup cottage cheese (with salt)
0.5 cup milk (dairy or plant-based)
0.5 cup flour (any type is fine)
1-2 TB canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor & blend until smooth
Fry on medium heat (if you put it on high, it will burn)
Whipped Cottage Cheese Toast
I like to use this for toast, bagels, waffles, pancakes or even muffins! You can change the flavour by adding different protein powder or even everything bagel seasoning. You can also experiment with this recipe by making mini-dessert cups.
1 cup of cottage cheese with salt
1/2 scoop of strawberry protein powder
Place both ingredients in a food processer
Blend for 1 minute or until cottage cheese becomes smooth.
Spread on anything you like!
Copycat Starbucks Egg Bites
I love the texture of the Egg Bites at Starbucks where my egg bites always had a texture that was too light.
All you need to do is put the base ingredients (eggs, egg whites, spices, cottage cheese) in the blender and stir in the remaining ingredients you wish to remain whole (such as sausage, bacon, cheese, vegetables) before cooking.

I have also used whipped cottage cheese to add a higher protein creamy flavour to curries or pasta dishes such as alfredo & bolognese!
If you are like me and you do not like the texture of cottage cheese on its own, these recipes are perfect for you!
