Super Healthy, Feel Like a Good Mom CUPCAKES or PANCAKES!

Ready to feel good about what your kids are eating AND be the best Mom around? Check out this recipe. You can make it as pancakes or cupcakes, but I think I prefer the cupcakes.

* Set the oven to 350 degrees

Blend the following ratio (I do the ratio below times 6, but I have a big blender)

* 2 eggs (you can do 2 egg whites for every egg if you prefer)
* 1/2 cup cottage cheese
* 1/2 cup oatmeal (dry)
* Cinnamon to taste (I like to add a lot)

Pour into muffin cupcake liners in a muffin pan; fill it a little more than half-way, it will not rise very much. Cook 15-20+ minutes; it is hard to cook them too long. You want to make sure they are really cooked in the center. Sometimes I let my batter sit a little and then cook them.

The magic touch, the “spoonful of sugar that helps the medicine go down,” is to frost it. I use Nutella, however any frosting will do. Your children might like these plain, so try that first. But if it requires the frosting, who cares? Your children are eating cottage cheese, eggs, and oatmeal and they like it! They will also think you are pretty awesome for giving them cupcakes as a snack. (But between you and me, there is so much nutrition in this cupcake that it will not send their blood sugar skyrocketing like a normal cupcake would.) You can freeze these without frosting and frost them when they thaw. I like to bring a few out at a time and really spice up breakfast or snack time.
