Low Carb Zucchini Pancakes

These low carb zucchini pancakes are addicting! And a perfect way to put your 500lbs of garden zucchini to good use. These pancakes are low carb, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and deeeeeelicious! This recipe makes a TON of pancakes, which I love because I save them in the fridge and eat them as snacks or breakfast throughout the week.
Servings: 20 pancakes


  • 1 small Zucchini (just over 1 cup)
  • 1 1/2 Cup Almond Mylk
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil, melted
  • 2 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Chia Seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 2 Eggs


  • Grate zucchini and wring out excess moisture. Leave on towel to dry.
  • Mix remaining ingredients in a blender.
  • Fold zucchini into batter and pour onto griddle.



NUT FREE - Replace the almond mylk with coconut milk or any seed mylk. Replace the almond flour with a "heaping" 1/2 cup coconut flour + "heaping"  1/2 cup tapioca flour. Add an extra 1/4 mylk and 3 eggs to the batter.
