Zucchini Feta Pancakes

Zucchini Feta Pancakes

My Zucchini Feta Pancakes came out so amazing. These are not sweet pancakes, they are savory.

I took more zucchini from my garden and decided to turn them into some delicious zucchini pancakes. They were so easy to put together and only a few minutes to make.

These pancakes are a great way to get some vegetables into your day as well. If you follow WW (Weight Watchers) you will gain personal points back for eating these pancakes. They only have 200 Calories per serving and has 19.4g of protein in each serving.

 

Here is what you will need:

  • Cooking spray/Avocado oil spray
  • Zucchini
  • Onion
  • Quick oats
  • Egg whites
  • feta cheese (I use fat free)
  • Scallions
  • Seasonings (I use Dak’s Spices)
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Tahini or syrup

Our garden keeps producing these amazing and large zucchinis and I’m loving all of the recipes that are coming from them. 

I then used some ingredients that I usually have on hand and just created these delicious pancakes with what I had. 

I took my Nutri Bullet and blended up some quick oats to make an easy oat flour. 

I’ve found many different egg whites at many different stores for different prices. Costco has the best price. I like the small cartons because they don’t take up a lot of space in the fridge. 

When it comes to the feta cheese, you can use whatever brand and percentage of fat you’d like. I had this one on hand and just used up the rest of the container.
