    I made these and mine were squishy in the middle. Are they supposed to be? I flipped them because they were really done on the downside. What temp and how long did you cook yours? I really wanted to like these and plan to give them another try.

      I think because of using the cottage cheese they are certainly softer than typical pancakes. Try cooking on a low temperature for longer before flipping. If the still come out too squishy for your taste, you can add in 1/4 cup more of rolled oats.

    2 cups of egg whites is a ton. I’m new to this site – do you really use whole eggs and save that many yolks? If so, how many is it? Or are you buying egg whites in the carton?

    I noticed that a lot of your recipes call for stevia I am not a big fan of it!!! Would there be a good substitute? Thanks

      Many people who say they don’t like stevia often found that using the liquid as opposed to the powdered, rather like it, no aftertaste. It might be worth you trying again. I’m sure you could use honey or even molasses, but since I haven’t tried it, I’d be guessing on how much you’d need.
