Add all the ingredients to a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes on high. Stir well and microwave another 2 minutes. Stir and set aside to thicken.
For the pancakes:
Add oats, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder to a food processor or blender. Process for about 30 seconds.
Add cottage cheese, eggs, and maple syrup to the food processor and process until incorporated. Stir and process another 30 seconds to make sure everything is completely combined. Let sit for a few minutes while you preheat a skillet or griddle over medium heat.
Transfer about 1/4 cup pancake batter to preheated skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes, until bubbles form and it easily releases from skillet. Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes until done. Repeat with remaining batter.
Enjoy pancakes topped with raspberry sauce and butter, if desired
*Use old fashioned or quick oats. Do not use instant oats or steel cut oats.*One cup of raspberries is about 1/2 of a 6 oz. container*You can use maple syrup or honey, depending on personal preference in the pancakes and the sauce. I prefer maple syrup in the pancakes and honey in the sauce, but it's up to you to decide.
