Zucchini Pancakes

By Austin McEvoy

Putting vegetables in a pancake seems like cooking taboo, especially if you are used to pancakes of the mouthwatering buttermilk variety.  However, these guys are loaded with protein and healthy carbs that traditional pancakes lack.  The unique hybridization of ingredients also makes them versatile enough to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or an afternoon snack.
