Last week I went to the beach in Texas with my brother, his wife, and their 3 cute kids. Before I left, I picked a zucchini from the garden, thinking I’d have time to cook something with it before I left. I wanted some kind of Paleo zucchini bread or pancakes. The recipes I found on the web didn’t look good to me. That poor zucchini was sitting for about 10 days while we were away. It was a little dried out, but I decided tonight I was going to invent something with it. And so I did. And it was good. Good enough that my son thought it was his new favorite pancake recipe. So, here it is….
- 2/3 cup pureed zucchini (measured post puree)
- 1 cup of pecans, ground (measured pre-ground. Grind until like a nut flour, not butter)
- 1/4 cup coconut flour (press out the lumps with the back of a spoon before adding to the mix)
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 5 eggs
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
Mix it all up with a mixer on medium speed. I cooked them on a hot non-stick skillet with a little olive oil.
I still have lots of zuke left. I think I’ll go make more……
