In a small bowl, slightly mash raspberries with a fork. Preheat a large skillet or griddle to medium heat (275 degrees).  In a large bowl combine cottage cheese, oats, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla and mix to combine.

Transfer mixture to a blender along with 3/4 cup milk, blend until smooth. Gently stir in mashed raspberries. Lightly grease preheated skillet. Pour 1/3 cup of the pancake batter onto the skillet.
