  • 1 medium zucchini coarsely grated (about 1 cup unpacked grated zucchini)
  • 6 tablespoons coconut sugar  for sugar-free, use ¼ cup xylitol
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil or another mildly flavored oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1  1/3 cups unsweetened almond or cashew milk
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons ground flaxseed
  • 2 cups Ricki’s All Purpose Gluten-Free Flour Mix see recipe at right (or any all-purpose gluten-free flour that measures one-to-one for wheat flour)
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt Coconut oil or gluten-free nonstick cooking spray for the pan
  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts or dairy-free chocolate chips
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini, sugar, oil, vanilla, milk, vinegar, and flaxseed. Allow to sit for 5 minutes then stir well to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Into the bowl, sift the flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir to combine. Fold in the chocolate chips or walnuts.
  3. Heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat and grease lightly with oil or spray with cooking spray. Using a large ice cream scoop or 1/3-cup measuring cup, scoop the batter (it will be fairly thick) into the pan to form pancakes. If necessary, use a spatula to spread out the batter. Cook until the tops are dry and edges are beginning to brown, 4-5 minutes. Gently flip and cook another 2-4 minutes on the other side. Keep warm until all the pancakes are ready. (May be frozen. Defrost by popping the frozen cakes in the toaster and toasting to heat through.)
