These whole grain pancakes are full of nutrition and flavor! Use up some garden fresh zucchini and your family will gobble these up!


  • 1 1/2 cups whole grain pancake mix (like Arrowhead Mills Multigrain)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup finely shredded zucchini
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons oil (I used coconut oil)


  1. Heat a pan over medium-low heat. Grease with cooking spray (I used coconut oil).
  2. Stir together all ingredients in a medium to large-sized bowl just until combined and lumps disappear.
  3. Scoop about 1/4 cup batter per pancake. Cook on one side until bubbles begin to form around the edges (about 2 minutes). Flip and cook on the other side for about a minute or two more, until cooked through.
  4. Serve with real butter and real maple syrup.
