I used both a quick spray of cooking oil plus a tiny bit of olive oil. The spray will ensure the cakes are stick-free; the oil supplies a great crispness and rich taste. I substituted Kodiak cakes protein pancake mix for flour in this recipe to shave one WW SmartPoint. Feel free to substitute flour if your prefer. Self rising flour will make the pancakes rise a little higher and faster. Plain flour works just fine as does whole wheat flour although the cakes will be slightly heavier.
In a large bowl stir together the pancake mix, baking powder, salt and pepper.
Stir in the zucchini, eggs and green onions.
Spray and heat a skillet or griddle, adding the oil when the skillet is hot.
Ladle a generous 1/4 cup batter on to the skillet and cook over medium for 5 minutes.
Repeat with remaining batter.
After 5 minutes, flip the cakes and cook for another 5 minutes over medium low until they are firm, brown and cooked through.
If you double this recipe and make a big batch of pancakes, you can keep the finished ones warm in a very low oven (250F degrees) on a foil or parchment lined baking pan.I used medium high heat which may vary. the cakes should sizzle. Avoid having the pan smoke; if this begins to happen, remove the pan from the heat, reduce the heat, or until it stops, then resume cooking.Serving size: 2 zucchini pancakes4*SmartPoints (Green plan)2*SmartPoints (Blue plan)2*SmartPoints (Purple plan)4*PointsPlus (Old plan)
