Zucchini Bread Pancakes

zucchini_bread_pancakeIf we have a Sunday morning in which the teens are at home and there’s no need to rush out the door, I enjoy making a hearty breakfast.  Quite often I will solicit a request from the teens or my husband, making the decision of what to make so much easier.  However, last Sunday I knew what I wanted to try- a new version of pancakes.

My good friend and I used to dine at a local restaurant that always had creative pancake recipes on the menu.  Unfortunately that restaurant went out of business, and I have yet to find another that serves such unique creations.  So, I decided that I would take creativity into my own hands.  All of us enjoy zucchini bread, and all of us enjoy pancakes, so why not combine the two?

Served with a pat of butter and some syrup, these were a delicious start to the day.  The kids, who usually prefer chocolate chip pancakes, were willing to give these a try and found them to be tasty.  To be honest, not tasty enough to pass on the option of chocolate chip pancakes, but I believe that on a second breakfast of zucchini bread pancakes I might have full converts!

Write a review


  1. 1 egg
  2. 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  3. 1/2 cup flour
  4. 3 Tb. brown sugar
  5. 1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  6. 1 Tb. baking powder
  7. 1 tsp. vanilla
  8. 1 cup milk*
  9. 3/4 cup shredded zucchini
  10. 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  1. Whisk egg in a large bowl. Add flours, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, vanilla, and milk.
  2. Whisk until combined (batter may be slightly lumpy).
  3. Add zucchini and walnuts, stirring well.
  4. Preheat a griddle or large frying pan over medium heat. If not using a nonstick pan, grease lightly with butter. Pour batter onto griddle to make pancake of desired size.
  5. When bubbles appear in the pancakes (approximately 2-3 minutes), flip and cook second side for another 2 minutes.
  6. Transfer to a serving plate.
  7. If pancakes are not being served immediately, wrap loosely in foil and keep warm in a 200° oven.
  1. *I prefer a thinner pancake. For thicker pancakes, use less milk.
  2. For really thin pancakes, increase the amount of milk.
