Protein Packed Lemon Stuffed Pancakes!

I feel like I hit the Jackpot on this one! I absolutely love lemon and pancakes, putting them together is a dream come true. I want to still stay on track and not make a super sugary lemon filling that will set back my progress and leave me feeling less than good about my choices. I have been experimenting with cottage cheese and let me tell you the results have been phenomenal. Hear me out, do not click the X just yet if you hate cottage cheese I get it! I am right there with you, I have texture issues and chewing or not chewing on mush is not my idea of appetizing!  I have used this is several other savory recipes that you can find on my page, I decided to try it with some sweetness and it was creamy, sweet and just the right amount of tart! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
