When you hear zucchini and banana in the same sentence you may be thinking it’s a recipe for a disaster. You wouldn’t think it, but this combo works in these yummy zucchini banana pancakes! The key is using very ripe bananas and fresh zucchini. You want to get an even grate on your zucchini and remove some but not all the moisture.
This is a very hearty pancake and because the zucchini is moist, they take a little longer to cook. Don’t rush and take them off the griddle before they’re done. Keep the temperature lower and leave them on a little longer. Don't be worried if they're a little moist since they don't have eggs. If you don’t have a griddle here are some great options to use when making pancakes.
This recipe is better than just using a box pancake mix. Normally, you’ll have most of these ingredients already in your pantry. You can try different types of flours and spices to incorporate into this batter. You can also add additional ingredients for flavor like nuts, raisins or chocolate chips.
These pancakes are so delicate and tasty you don’t need toppings but if you want some, almost anything goes. We picked berries from the garden this morning and used them to top these pancakes. If you don’t have access to fresh berries, you can use frozen. These pancakes are awesome topped with fruit and maple syrup.
