    This recipe looks so good! Too bad it’s hard to find cottage cheese in my country. Is there a good sub for it?

  3. These are amazing!! For days when I don’t workout but want something filling and high protein, this is it!! I skipped the pineapple and almonds, and it still tasted AMAZING. My new fav snack !! Thanks sooo much Cassey !!! <3

  4. I made these this morning and they turned out dense and chewy on the outside but soft in the middle. I took them out after 20 minutes because the tops were already brown. Any idea why that happened? I was hoping they’d be light and fluffy like they were in the picture. :(

    • Convection oven? That usually happens when I bake things in a convection oven. Everything comes out better in a good ole regular oven.

    • I had the same problem. I have a normal oven. They look completely different from the picture as well as from other similar recipes I’ve made in the past (this is the first one I’ve done with cottage cheese). They’re pretty much raw inside and burnt outside :(

  5. I tried this recipe and it was GREAT!, even my daughter liked it, she was very very sceptical! It cake out just like on the photo.
