Easy & Versatile Zucchini Pancakes Recipe [Video]

Chances are you fall into one of three camps: 1. you want to eat more veggies but are uninspired as to how, 2. you have more zucchini than you know what to do with, or 3. you love pancakes and had to click. Whatever your reasoning, you’re in the right place! Watch this short video as chef Marianne shows you just how easy and fast it is to make Zucchini Pancakes. While zucchini is in the title, this really could be called “clean out your refrigerator pancakes” as the recipe works well with most vegetables you have on hand, carrots, sweet potato, rutabagas, or turnips.

Beyond the how to make the recipe, Marianne shares fun facts and tips that only a chef would know. This recipe was created specifically for our Nutrition 4 Weight Loss clients, designed as a savory side dish, perfect alone or topped with a dollop of sour cream and herbs.

We chose zucchini because it is a fantastic low carb vegetable that is a good source of vitamin A (important for healthy eyes and immunity, as well as bone and reproductive health) and vitamin C (important for collagen production, immunity and blood vessel health), as well as minerals such as manganese and potassium. Bonus, zucchini is inexpensive and super easy and fun to grow in the family garden.

Thanks Marianne for the Easy & Versatile Zucchini Pancakes Recipe [Video].
I always love to hear you inspire us to cook. You have the best tips and informative information about our food. LOVE IT!

Recently I've discovered TigerNuts (not a nut at all, starchy carb?). I've ground them up and created a flour. Wonder if I could substitute that for the almond flour. Seems like you really don't need much of the TigerNut flour at all for things to thicken up. Just wondering if you had any thoughts on using it at all.

Thanks, Stephanie

  • 4 oz protein (~1 serving, males should aim for 4-6oz, women 3-4oz for meals)
    • 4 eggs= ~4 oz
  • 3 servings vegetables
    • 3 cup zucchini squeezed of water = 3 servings
  • 2 servings fat
    • 1.5 servings from the 1 Tbsp oil

For a single serving (great snack option!)
