Baked Zucchini Pancakes
Low Carb

13g carbs

Talk about how a recipe changes year after year. This recipe started out as a way to make Latkes (Hanukah potato pancakes) with less fat. Then it changed with my diagnosis of Diabetes to zucchini pancakes. The most recent change is using some whole wheat flour in the batter to replace some of the white flour. The change was just intended to add nutritional value to the recipe, but it popped the flavor even more than the older version. This is a delicious side dish to go with a protein in place of potato pancakes at dinner.
