Whole Wheat Zucchini Pancakes! and Recipe Link Party

12 June 2011



Well, I am totally wiped out from today and ready for bed (it is actually Saturday night as I write this),....SO not in the mood to post a recipe.  But with zucchini season upon us, I guess I better show you something to use up the abundant veggie before it takes of your life and refrigerator.

One thing that I have been LOVING lately is whole wheat pancakes (my wonderful sister Noelle's recipe) with yogurt- (homemade low sugar Greek yogurt!!!!) and fruit on top...okay, and some syrup!  I have been making Greek yogurt almost weekly lately, I need to update my yogurt recipe because I now have it down to an art and have simplified the steps, so look forward to that revised recipe soon)

Anyway, with pancakes on my mind, and squash taking up half of my counter, I thought I would just add a few shredded cups to my pancakes.  And guess what it turned out perfectly!  And I actually feel pretty good about eating this, I am not saying it is low calorie, but you get: 2-3 fruit, 1 veggie, whole grain, and dairy serving in one little dish!


Whole Wheat Zucchini Pancakes
Makes approximately 12 pancakes  
(I always save half some in a Ziploc bag in the fridge for the next day!)

2 cups whole grain wheat
2 Tbsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbsp oil
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup milk
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
2 cups grated zucchini 
1 cup special dark chocolate chips (optional**)

I just grate the zucchini right into the bowl, then add the rest of the ingredient and stir.  Cook over a medium/hot griddle, sprayed with cooking spray, flip when the edges start to look matte (lose their shine).  Serve HOT, and i hope you LOVE them!

**Okay, so you don't have to add the chocolate chips but there is not a lot of sugar, so they add sweetness and sorta balance out the veggie in your pancakes factor.  If you omit them you may want to consider either adding a tiny bit more sugar,  or just use a bit more syrup and call it good.  (I can't promise the pancakes will be as good without them...not only am I a Remodelaholic, but I am definitely a Chocoholic!!!) 

This recipe also works as just a simple whole wheat pancake when you leave out the zucchini, cinnamon and chocolate chips

Toppings:
Greek Yogurt or Regular Vanilla yogurt
Sliced Strawberries
Sliced bananas
Blueberries
Syrup (optional)


What have you all been making? 
 And please, if you have any yellow squash or zucchini recipes link them up for me!!!

Oh my word! These are AMAZING!!! I just tried them last night as a part of my freezer cooking. My 2 year old thinks they are "cupcakes" instead of pancakes lol. YUMMY!! I made 2 substitutions. Instead of oil I used applesauce and instead of sugar I used Agave Nectar. They turned out excellent! Thanks for the recipe! it's going to be a new regular!
