Cottage cheese and walnut fritters are healthy bites that are easy to prepare. They make great snacks or appetizers for kids and adults alike. Serve them some salad to make a filling meal.
500g low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
1/4 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1 egg white
3/4 cup cornflake crumbs
Extra virgin olive oil spray
Salt and ground pepper to taste
Sour cream for serving
Preheat the oven at 180C and line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
In a large bowl, combine the cottage cheese, oats, herbs, walnuts, egg white and one fourth of the cornflake crumbs. Mix well. Season it with salt and pepper.
Put the rest of the cornflake crumbs on a plate and set it aside.
Get a tablespoon of the cottage cheese mixture and roll it into a ball. Flatten it slightly to form a patty and coat it with cornflake crumbs. After, place it on the lined tray. Repeat this with the remaining ingredients.
Spray the cottage cheese and walnut fritters with olive oil. Bake them in the oven for fifteen minutes or until they are golden brown. Remove from oven and let it cool slightly before serving. Serve on a platter or divide among individual plates. Serve warm with sour cream.
