Everyone is making cottage cheese bread, so I decided to try it out and make my version of it with a few more added ingredients like rolled oats, ground flax seeds, and a bit of olive oil. This turned out great and better than I expected. Each slice has 10 grams of protein and I love serving it with some cream cheese, a drizzle of honey, or a bit of butter. A delicious flourless bread that will be your go-to bread recipe moving forward. Yummy! 😋

Recipe Highlight

  • Easy to make: Your food processor and oven till do most of the work for you.
  • High in protein: each slice has 10 grams of protein from all the cottage cheese and eggs.
  • Kid-friendly: The kids will love it. A great alternative to store-bought bread.

  • Baking Powder

How to make cottage cheese bread

Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 9 x 5-inch bread pan. Strain the cottage cheese really well and remove all the liquid from it as best as you can.

In your food processor, add the oats and process until mostly fine.

Add the strained cottage cheese, flax seed (optional), eggs, oil, baking powder, and salt. Process until the mixture is smooth.

Pour the mixture into your prepared loaf pan and bake for around 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Allow the bread to completely cool on a cooling rack before slicing.

My Pro Tip

Recipe Tips

  • You can use another oil of your choice.
  • Allow the bread to cool completely before slicing.
  • Important: Strain the cottage cheese and remove as much liquid from it as you can.
  • I recommend you use a sharp knife to slice.
  • You can add some herbs to the bread batter like rosemary.
  • Let the batter sit for 10-15 minutes before popping it into the oven.

Storage Recommendations

  • Storing: Allow the bread to cool down before storing it. If you have leftovers it is safe to leave them covered overnight on your kitchen counter. After that, I recommend placing them in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 7 days. You can freeze in a freezer-safe bag or container for up to 3 months.
  • Reheating: If the bread is frozen, allow it to thaw overnight in the fridge first before reheating. To reheat, simply use the microwave and reheat at 20-second increments until heated through.

Frequently asked questions

Can I add seeds to it?

You sure can. If you want to add more herbs and seeds you can. Try anise seeds, poppy seeds, or rosemary.

Do I have to use full-fat cottage cheese?

No. You can use lite cottage cheese to make this recipe.

Can I use quick oats instead?

Yes. You can substitute the rolled oats with quick oats. I recommend you use 2 cups instead of 2 and 1/4 cup.

    1. Hi Vicki. Jalapenos yes. Cheese I am not sure. The bread is moist because of the oats and cottage cheese, I would have to test it to gove you the right answer here. I can test it with cheese soon and get back to you unless you want to give it a try before then. I would love to know how it turns out.

  1. The nutrition facts is that per slice or whole loaf? Just need to know as my friend and her daughter keep track of those things. Thank you

    1. Hi. I haven’t tried it so I can’t be 100% certain. I assume it is close to oats so maybe it will work.

    1. I haven’t tested it I am not 100% but I think it could work. You can make Greek yogurt bread with just 2 ingredients. 1 cup Greek yogurt and one cup self-rising flour. Try it. Similar to my 2 ingredient bagel recipe

    1. Hi Beth. I haven’t Tried it but I really think you can sure. Let me know if you decide to try it.

  2. 5 stars
    I followed your recipe excactly and my bread turned out perfect and delicious!
    Thanks for sharing the recipe! I will make this again!

    1. I think it should be fine even thought I haven’t tested it. If you do let me know how it comes out

  3. 4 stars
    Hi Rena, I made the Cottage Cheese bread according to directions. It tasted good but it was dense and overly moist, even though I drained the cottage cheese. I noticed in the detailed recipe it calls for 24 oz of cottage cheese or 2-1/4 cups. Since 2-1/4 cups is closer to 18 oz, and 24 oz is 3 cups, I went with the 24 oz. Which should it be, 24 oz (3 cups) or 2-1/4 cups (18 oz.)?

    1. Hi Nancy, Not sure why that turned out that way since ovens vary. It didn’t on my end. But I remade it today using less cottage cheese to see what happens and I think that would be an ideal amount to use as opposed to using ounces. Hope this helps. Did you use rolled oats or quick oats?

      1. I used small. I don’t think it should make a huge difference since you will be blending it. But don’t forget to drain it.

    1. Hi, Depends on the size of the pan. You can get 10-12 slices. If you get 12 slices, its 137 calories per slice
