Sounds kind of bizarre, right? Well it’s not. I promise!
I knew that I needed to have a nice, big bowl of oats for breakfast yesterday now that Passover had ended but we were low on eggs [my go-to protein to add into my oats]. I wanted to try something different for a change and gave the cottage cheese a go. The oats came out nice and creamy with just a slight cheesiness to them. It was really great so I had to share!
Cottage Cheese Oats
Makes 1 serving
– 1/2 banana; mashed
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/3 cup water
– 1/3 cup cottage cheese [I use low fat Daisy]
– 1/3 cup rolled oats [I use Bob’s Red Mill]
– Splash of almond milk [optional]
– 1 tbsp nut butter
– 1 tbsp granola [the Banana Bread Granola is perfect!]
– A little extra cinnamon
Place a small pot over medium-high heat. Add in banana, cinnamon, water, and cottage cheese. Mix thoroughly and bring to a boil before adding in the oats. Once boiling, mix in the oats and cook until desired texture is reached, about 5-10 minutes. I like add a splash of almond milk at the end and let cook another minute; I think this makes it extra creamy! Toss your toppings on and enjoy!

Food for Thought
Are you a cottage cheese fan?
Interesting. I would never think to add in cottage cheese to my oats!
Give it a try, it’s delish!
i love doing this! which reminds me, i need more cottage cheese!
Never enough! 🙂
Not strange at all!! I do this often – great creaminess!!
I love it for a little something different.
I love cottage cheese in oats! It makes for the best texture. I posted one like 2 years ago with strawberries. Need to do this ‘naner version!
Yum! The strawberries are ridiculous here right now.. I’ll have to try yours!
As strange as it sounds, it looks so good! Thanks for sharing the recipe over at #RECIPEFRIDAY 🙂
It IS so good! 🙂
