  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl stir together cottage cheese, milk, egg whites and 1/2 teaspoon lemon peel. Add pancake mix; stir until just combined. Gently stir in the 2/3 cup blueberries.

  • For each pancake, use a small ice cream scoop (2 tablespoons) to spoon the batter onto the hot griddle; reduce heat to medium. Spread batter, if necessary, with back of ice cream scoop. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown. Turn over with a spatula when surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry.

  • Serve warm with syrup and, if desired, garnish with additional blueberries and lemon peel.
