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.

Gluten-Free Whole Grain Chocolate Chip Zucchini Pancakes

Ahaa, pancakes...

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!

Ingredients
 
 

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 medium Granny Smith Apple

Shop the G-FreeDeliciously Wildtree Store!Wildtree.com/gfreedeliciously!

Instructions
 

  • Add apple, zucchini, egg, vinegar, oil and half the almond milk in a large bowl, blend with an immersion blender to incorporate (You could also use a blender.)
  • Add oatmeal, baking powder, cinnamon to bowl and stir to combine. Blend, adding more almond milk a little at a time. The batter should be thick and pourable.
  • Fold in chocolate chips, allow the batter to sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Preheat non-stick griddle over medium heat. Spray or wipe with cooking oil. When the griddle is hot, pour about 1/2 Cup of batter onto the heated pan. Cook until the top surface of each pancake bubbles, about 2 to 3 minutes. When the edges are golden, flip each pancake and continue cooking until browned on the underside. Repeat until all batter is gone.
  • Serve pancakes with butter and maple syrup, if desired.

Notes

These pancakes refrigerate and freeze well. To reheat in the microwave, cover for 40 to 60 seconds at 70-percent power until warm. Freeze up to two months.
