Cottage Cheese: 5 Delicious Recipe Ideas With The Fitness Food


She is the forgotten stepchild in the fridge: cottage cheese! Because let’s face it, if we think of cheese or other dairy products, Gouda, Emendable or quark and yogurt come to mind. Totally wrong!

Fitness fans know that long ago and rely on cottage cheese as a 1a protein supplier.

Powerhouse Cottage Cheese

Whole 12 grams of protein stuck in 100 grams of cottage cheese, and with very little fat. Can Magerquark well, you’ll be thinking – right: Magerquark but difficult its own flavor and firm texture going on. The nice thing about cottage cheese is that it tastes of both tomato and oregano, as well as berries and cinnamon. Even pure. To make sure that you never get bored with the protein bomb, we looked around for delicious recipe ideas.

5 Recipes For Making Cottage Cheese:

1. Protein Breakfast Waffles

Juhu, waffles with plenty of protein are a perfect breakfast – and with cottage cheese sometimes a change from the typical egg white waffles, which one touches with protein powder (eg Whey). The whole wheat flour used keeps your blood sugar in balance and makes the waffles still fluffy.

That’s how it’s done:

1 packet of cottage cheese with 2/3 cup wholegrain spelled flour, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/3 cup milk, 4 large eggs, 1/3 cup cooking oil and 1 pinch of vanilla extract in a blender to a smooth dough stir. Grease the waffle iron, heat and bake the dough. Is enough for 4 people and tastes with yogurt, fresh fruit or maple syrup. Yummie!

2. Cheesy Guacamole

Never nachos without guacamole! With cottage cheese, this snack option is even more protein-rich and therefore more body friendly.

That’s how it’s done:

In a blender, mix 400 grams of cottage cheese, 1/2 cup sliced red onion, 2 sprigs of freshly chopped parsley, 2 teaspoons of fresh lime juice, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon ground garlic and 1 teaspoon turmeric. Add 1 cup of diced avocado and briefly toast the blender two to three times to coarsely mix in the avocado. But she should not be quite creamy!

PS: Fits except to Nachos also to any other court …

3. Cheesecake Brownies

No, you do not see the cottage cheese brownies that cheese is in there! Your advantage: You need this chocolate sin no extra oil and they are super creamy.

That’s how it’s done:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a rectangular baking dish. Then beat 1 cup of cottage cheese in a blender until creamy, so that it reminds of ricotta. Melt 60 grams of dark chocolate and mix with the cottage cheese. Add 1/2 cup maple syrup starch A, 2 large eggs, and vanilla extract. Add 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 cup ground almonds, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Chop 60 grams of dark chocolate and mix into the mixture. Put the dough in the greased tin and bake for 30 minutes, then allow to cool.

For the glaze, heat 1/4 cup cream again (do not boil) and mix with 60 grams of chopped, dark chocolate – stir for 3 minutes. When all the pieces have melted, place the topping over the cooled mold, cover with foil and place in the refrigerator. After about an hour enjoy!

It is best to keep the brownies in the fridge.

4. Baked Oatmeal

Only Overnight Oats or Proats for breakfast? Nope, on the weekend it may also be something more. How about baked oatmeal, for example? That’s really nice and is not quite as carbohydrate-heavy with cottage cheese.

That’s how it’s done:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a round pie-shaped (about 23 cm). Whisk one egg, 1/3 cup cottage cheese, 1/3 cup vanilla yogurt, 1 tsp honey and 1 pinch of vanilla extract in a large bowl with a fork. Add 1 1/2 cups of coarse oatmeal, 1/4 cup coconut flakes, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 2/3 cup of milk (optional) and mix. Add 1/4 cup of dried cranberries and add the mixture to the dish. If you want it sweeter, sprinkle chocolate pieces over the crowd.

Bake for 20-30 minutes until the Oatmeal is goldenly baked and the surface is slightly crispy. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve warm – cut into pieces and pimp with fruit or vanilla ice cream…

5. Chocolate Cookies

Biscuits with cheese do not always end up as cheese biscuits, it is also chocolaty – and in the form of funky delicious chocolate cookies.

That’s how it’s done:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Mix 3/4 cup flour (of your choice), 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/4 tsp salt and baking powder in a bowl and set aside. Add 6 tablespoons soft butter, 3/4 cup sugar, and one egg. Add 1 tsp vanilla extract with 1/2 cup cottage cheese and whisk well. Then fold in the dry ingredients and mix everything with a large spoon.

On a baking sheet lined with baking paper, make about 12 biscuits: It is best to portion with a tablespoon and shape small balls.

Bake for 10-12 minutes and sprinkle the finished cookies with powdered sugar. In an airtight box, the biscuits stay fresh for a week.

Wondering if there's such thing as too much chocolate…?🤔 . . I have to admit that I was quite suspicious of wheter or not cookies made out of chickpeas can be any good, BUT since @theurbancanteen managed to make them look sooo delicious, I figured to give them a go. And you know what! They are DELISHHH😍 I mean they are no Oreos, but still a really really tasty alternative if you want to bake something a bit healthier 😗 This recipe is vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free and takes only about 15-20 minutes to make. I combined a few different recipes I found on the internet and here's how it goes: Chocolate chickpea cookies You need: 1 can of chickpeas 3 fresh dates 1 ripe banana 2,5 tbls of cacao powder 2tbls of coconut flakes 3 tbls of tahini 1ts of baking powder 40g of chopped dark chocolate 1. Put the chickpeas, banana and dates (remember to remove the pits) in a blender and blend until smooth 2. Mix in all the other ingredients and place heaped tablespoons of the dough onto a parchment paper covered baking sheet 4. Bake in a 200°C oven for about 12-15minutes (depending on the size of your cookies) PS. The answer to my question is: NO😎🍫🍫 . . #chocolatecookies#chocolate#chocolatechipcookies#chickpeas#chickpeacookies#veganbaking#bakinginspo#thefeedfeed#thrivemags#redmagazine#bestofvegan#baking#veganfoodshare#milkandcookies#foodphotography#veganrecipes#glutenfree#sugarfree#instarecipes#instabaking#kikherne#suklaakeksi#chocoholic#foodstyling#ruokakuva#leivonta#wholefoods#onthetable#healthybaking#f52grams
