Paleo Recipe – Zucchini Pancakes

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……
