Things were a little green (trying zucchini flour)!

Back at the beginning of September I finally started getting enough zucchini that I decided to make zucchini flour.    It wasn't a lot but it was a trail.

This morning as I was reaching for my coconut flour I decided to use half of the zucchini flour and half of the coconut flour then mix it with the almond flour in the recipe.  Just to try it you know?  As I started mixing up my batter it had me worried.  Things were just a little green.  The visual of green pancakes just didn't sit well.  Yuck!  

FYI:  Zucchini flour and coconut flour are a 1 to 1 ratio.   So one cup of zucchini flour equals 1 cup of cocunut flour.  In this recipe I used 1/8 cup of the zucchini flour and 1/8 cup of coconut flour along with almond flour.

As I was frying them I was relieved the green disappeared expect for little specks and they came out golden. I didn't notice a difference in taste at all.  Probably the more zucchini flour you use the green color will most  stay in the baked product.

They were delicious even if I can't make the most beautiful pancakes.  I poured home made sugar free strawberry syrup on top and had a wonderful breakfast.

Have you ever tried zucchini flour before?

Those pancakes look very tasty and the zucchini flour adds extra nutrition plus cuts the cost of gluten free flours.

I didn't even notice that it was in there and like you say anoymous -it cuts the cost of the coconut flour a lot!

practicing for St Paddy's day pancakes? Hubby's old church made scrambled eggs that always turned green due to cooking pan being aluminum

What a great way to use your zucchini, Vickie. I love this idea! I’d say they are very healthy for you to, an added bonus.
