i don’t think i have shared a pancake recipe here in a long time. probably because pancakes are not exactly on my weight watchers plan. i make 0 point pancakes [4] all the time, but i have very little willpower when it comes to a tall stack of fluffy pancakes. so they haven’t happened much around here this summer.

but then i had the crappiest of days and found myself totally craving pancakes drowning in butter and syrup. with tomorrow being national zucchini day and a garden that is still producing the best zucchini i have ever eaten, i made myself zucchini pancakes.

when pancakes are made with vegetables they can’t be that bad for you right? it doesn’t even matter; they were so totally worth the cheat.

the kids were not convinced that eating vegetables for breakfast was something they wanted to do. so i jacked their zucchini pancakes up with chocolate chips. kids will never say no to chocolate. even if it means eating zucchini for breakfast.

  • preheat a griddle or skillet over medium heat
  • whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt
  • in a separate bowl whisk together the milk, eggs, butter, honey, and vanilla
  • pour wet ingredients over the dry and stir just to combine (will be lumps)
  • gently fold in the zucchini
  • spoon 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto the griddle (add chocolate chips if using)
  • when bubbles begin to appear on the pancake tops flip carefully and cook until the undersides are golden brown
  • serve immediately topped with butter and syrup
  • pancakes can be kept warm in a 200 degree oven while you finish the batch

i could eat zucchini pretty much any way you want to serve it. raw in salads [6], sauteed with tomatoes, stuffed with tuna [7], roasted, in pasta, but really for me it is hard to beat a loaf of zucchini bread [8] or a stack of zucchini pancakes.
