Zucchini Pancakes – Gluten Free

Almond flour and Zucchini makes this pancake different…

It’s Sunday, it’s beautiful outside and cozy inside and I felt like blogging so here I am sharing this recipe. Lately, I’ve been into reading books, once I open a book I cannot place it down without finishing it. Also, I am not yet comfortable (and never will be) reading novels through Ipad, I need to hold the book in my hand and feel it while I flip the pages. Yesterday, I had finished reading”Veronika decides to die by Paulo Coelho”. I am an avid fan of this writer and my goal is to read all the books written by him by the end of this year. This book is an exceptional one, it’s so bold, touching and made me think a lot about insanity. Btw, who’s completely sane in this world??? A bit of insanity is what makes life enjoyable…Right now reading “The devil and miss prym”…

Weekends, I try to make pancakes for breakfast as my husband loves it. Last weekend, I made this pancake, this is quite different from the regular pancakes, as the batter is made with almond flour and gluten free flour mix. I’ve also added chopped zucchini to it. Zucchini has a blant taste so the addition of it doesn’t impart a big difference in the taste of the pancake. You could try this without adding zucchini or add you could add your favorite fruits or veggies.

Have pancakes on week days: One good thing about pancake is that you can make it way ahead and refrigerate it, warm it in the microwave the next morning and enjoy with maple syrup or honey.
