Green Lite Bites' Zucchini Pancakes



Introduction

Anyway, these are on old favorite of mine. A little ketchup and salt, they take me right back to the good old North Eastern PA bazaars where I grew up on artery clogging potato pancakes, an old favorite of mine. They donít have the same exact texture but they are good enough knock off for me!

Ingredients

    About 1 and Ĺ cup grated zucchini (a medium-large zucchini will be fine) (170g calculated)
    ľ cup whole-wheat flour (30g)

Directions

Grate the zucchini on a clean kitchen towel or paper towel and press a to remove a little of the extra moisture.

Whisk the flour and egg whites with a pinch of salt & pepper together for form the batter.

Add the zucchini to the batter and grate the onion into the bowl. Mix well to combine all the ingredients.

Heat a non-stick frying pan or griddle over medium high heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Form the zucchini batter into patties. The batter may be moist, thatís ok, form it into a patty and plop it in the griddle and press it down a bit, it will hold once it starts to cook. Before you flip sprinkle with salt. Cook for about 4-5 minutes a side or until cake becomes a nice brown.

I have made everywhere from 4-8 varying in size based on the amount of zucchini I used.
