Fluffy Zucchini Pancakes
If I had a garden or knew how to grow stuff or really even cared to taking care of a living organism, I bet I would have a ton of zucchini in my garden. But since I don’t even have an interest in planting flowers, veggies are out of the question. But luckily I have ton of friends who love growing shit and their gardens are FILLED with zucchini. Zucchini seems to grow like a weed which is really helpful when it comes to creating zucchini recipes. Have you tried my Frosted Zucchini Cake yet? Or my Blueberry Zucchini Muffins? What about my Zucchini Lasagna Roll Ups? It’s all delicious. And now you have a way to add in zucchini to pancakes! And here’s a little tip if you have a picky eater – be sure to peel the zucchini first before you shred it. That way you can’t see any of the green and the pain-in-the-ass human in your life will never know there are veggies in it!
How’s everybody out there feeling through this post-quarantine stage? I feel like the US is a free-for-all these days – Are people still quarantined? Are they living their normal lives? What is going on?! I pretty much quarantined before quarantine became a thing since I’m already a recluse, so things feel mostly the same in my tiny little bubble. I didn’t like going to busy public places before quarantine and I’m still not a fan of it now – one of the small perks to being an introvert. But I know my extrovert friends are STRUGGLING and based off the daily angry messages and comments I get on instagram, many other people out there are struggling, as well. Are you hella nervous about the election? I sure am. And don’t go freaking out thinking I’m talking about politics because I’m not. I’m simply talking about the state of the USA as of right now and what may begin to happen as we move closer and closer to November. Sometimes I wish my job didn’t include being online and on social media. Because I think if it didn’t, I would just throw my phone and computer away and stay in bed for a few months. I have no interested in knowing my aunt’s political views. I’m cool.
I actually have plans to check myself into a hotel for a night and leave my computer and phone at home. I used to be able to travel and that travel often included a phone that didn’t work properly, but now that travel is a no-go, I need some sort of break from communication. My phone buzzes every 12 seconds so thinking about now hearing that buzz for a solid 20 hours sounds MAGICAL. All I want is a massage, some room service, and the silence of a hotel room. I’ve narrowed it down to the hotel I want to stay at, but now I just need to figure out when. Doesn’t that sound delightful, though? No social media fighting, no questions, no cooking for anyone. Just silence, snacks, and trash TV. Nothing has ever sounded better. What do you need right now? Tell me!

off topic, but have you seen the Rob Schneider stand-up special on Netflix? I was suuuper stoned but I laughed my ass off.
Then I read mixed reviews online so I don’t know if it’s legit funny or if it was the weed. Anyway, the humor reminded me of you when I was listening to the latest podcast…
Hey Juli! Just wanted to come here and say sorry that people have been such effing assholes to you on IG! I really appreciate everything you do and have been following for years and love your recommendations, recipes, and work outs. People are so miserable with their own lives and are jealous of all you’ve built for yourself. Keep your head up!
Hi Juli! Just wanted to let you, and anyone looking for THE BEST PALEO PANCAKE RECIPE EVER!!!, to know that THIS IS IT.
Quite honestly, I’ve made many, many paleo (AIP, vegan, grain-free) pancake recipes, and they just never are that great, in texture or flavor. But these are really, really great!!
My little girl and I can’t have dairy, so I made these dairy-free by using coconut cream (recommend Thai Kitchen Premium – it’s the thickest I’ve found, due to the amount of guar gum in it – if you can tolerate it) and a teaspoon of white wine vinegar.
They turned out perfectly!! Not gummy or raw/uncooked in the center, just beautifully golden and evenly cooked. I also threw in some fresh blueberries and everyone loved them!!
I never would have thought to use zucchini, in place of bananas or applesauce, but of course!! So smart. You can’t taste it at all, but it’s pretty to see those green flecks and nice to know it’s in there!
Thank you so much for this awesome recipe. Much appreciated!! xx
AMAZING!! so happy to hear you loved the recipe!!
So freaking delicious!! My toddler asked for more….and let’s be honest, I did too!
yay!! so glad you liked it!!
These are our new go-to pancakes at our house! My husband loved them, and he is very particular about his pancakes! As with most pancakes, I enjoyed them with peanut butter, cinnamon, and a splash of maple syrup. Thank you for a killer recipe. 🙂
awesome, so happy to hear that you guys loved them!
Love these! I just harvested a huge zucchini and I made a bunch of small ones for my toddler to eat. They reheat well. I added a little cinnamon which was yummy. Thanks! Perfect timing!
awesome, so glad you liked them!!
I’ve been MIA online for a hot minute or a COVID 7 months. But your humor always makes me laugh. PLEASE never stop even when the negative Carols (HAHAHA!!) get to you. You can’t please everyone and I just have always admired how you call out the Crap you see and say it like it is. Even when I disagree. Which I do quite a bit. I just don’t feel the need to tell you the moment I disagree with you. And honestly it still makes me laugh. Im making this recipe this week for the Fam…if they love it i’ll let ya know! :0)
agreeing with everyone we know and follow would just be boring AF!
