Whole Wheat Zucchini and Blueberry Pancakes

Monday, and we are all off to Bumpa and Nana's we go! I love cooking big breakfasts on days off as a family, it's sort of a tradition, I guess...quite possibly maybe out of convenience, since I am not left to take cake of kids, cook, and clean alone :)

Anyways, I like this recipe because it has: whole wheat, vegetables, and fruit! Yes, sugar too...but moderation in all things is my motto! And who doesn't need another way to make pancakes?!


  • 2 cups whole grain wheat flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 3 Tbsp oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
The Process:
  1. Heat up a non-stick pan on medium high
  2. Mix the dry ingredients (flour,baking powder, salt, sugar, cinnamon). In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients (oil, eggs, vanilla, milk). Add the grated zucchini. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  3. Dollop about 1/4 cup on a buttered hot surface, until the bubbles start to surface on the pancake and pop. Flip and cook for another 30-45 seconds.
  4. Serve with whip cream, maple syrup, and/or fresh fruit and ENJOY!
Bon Appetit!
