Recipe: Zucchini Bread Pancakes

More pancakes, I know. But there are just so many different ways to create them! This recipe has a healthier bent because the pancakes are made with zucchini or summer squash and there is very little flour for you carb-conscious people out there. As is often the case, Michelle was my guinea pig for this recipe and she approved them. The recipe comes from the awesome blog, smitten kitchen; I tweaked it just a bit for my tastes.

Zucchini Bread Pancakes (adapted from this recipe)

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp kefir or buttermilk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 medium or 1-1.5 cups zucchini or summer squash, grated (I used summer squash)
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 shakes nutmeg

Procedure

  • Grate the squash/zucchini, put it in a colander, and press/squeeze out some of the liquid.
  • Meanwhile, combine the wet ingredients (egg, olive oil, kefir, vanilla, plus sugar). Add the squash and stir to combine.
  • Mix together the dry ingredients separately and then stir them into the wet mixture.
  • Cook the pancakes in oil over medium-low heat, flipping after bubbles begin to form and pop around the sides. Serve with butter, jam, or sour cream.

Смачного!
