Syrniki ~ or ~ Russian Pancakes

By June 12, 2011 No Comments

Hi!  This is Kim, one of Dustin’s contributors.  We tried a new recipe today for a gluten-free pancake.  It actually tasted more like a biscuit.  We found the recipe on and you can watch the video of how to make them here.  The final product received mixed reviews from our kids, but I thought they were pretty good. 


1.5 lb of 1% cottage cheese – one container     (I strained this with cheese cloth, to get rid of some of the liquid) – 3 whole eggs6 TB granulated sugar2.5 cups of coconut flour and 2.5 TB of coconut oil for frying

Mix all of the ingredients with a hand mixer, form in to patties and fry in coconut oil until brown and crispy on the edges.  The recipe made 18 – 3 in pancakes. 

We served these with butter and strawberry preserves, some fresh fruit and some of my husband’s family’s homemade sausage.
