Gluten-Free Whole Grain Chocolate Chip Zucchini Pancakes

This recipe is for our grandchildren Caleb, Jacob, and Kendra, and our Godson’s daughter Madison & son Cole who couldn’t get their fill of these pancakes this past summer.

Making pancakes for our family’s breakfast was my very first cooking experience as a child. I can remember that morning making pancakes like it was yesterday – complete with a recollection of the smells and proud smiles of accomplishment felt that came with serving them up at our table.

Nostalgia aside, it’s a feeling that continues today as the tradition of making and serving pancakes continues whenever family visits at breakfast time.

Because serving pancakes has become a family tradition of sorts, the fun of making them in my adult life has grown to include many flavors and varieties of the breakfast treat, especially when I know that children will be eating them. 

The trick to making pancakes that both children and adults will gobble up...

The tricky part in making pancakes that both children and adults will gobble up is to make them super tasty, yet not too sweet. That’s where using just the right amount of chocolate chips comes in to play for this recipe.

In this method for making Gluten-Free Whole Grain Chocolate Chip Zucchini Pancakes, gluten-free quick-cooking rolled oats is ground to make a nutritious batter that includes apple and grated zucchini. The apple works to balance the sweetness of the chocolate chips, and the zucchini mellows the richness of the chips giving the pancakes a flavor somewhat like zucchini bread. Almond milk adds a hint of nuttiness to the taste, and cider vinegar helps to make the pancakes rise, to light and fluffy as they cook on the griddle.

I’ve made this recipe using both frozen grated zucchini from the garden and fresh zucchini from the store. Both are equal as an ingredient for this recipe. One tip to remember is to drain the zucchini before adding it, doing this will eliminate a watered-down taste to the pancakes when they are done and will help in creating a normal batter consistency.

Finally, serve these Gluten-Free Whole Grain Chocolate Chip Zucchini Pancakes with real butter and real maple syrup. And, if you want to go over the top, serve with a little dollop of whipped cream on top to splurge!
