Low-Carb Zucchini Pancakes

Side Dishes
  • 1 pound zucchini
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 medium scallions, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Olive oil for frying

Grate zucchini and place in a colander. Season with salt and gently toss; let sit 5 minutes. Squeeze zucchini with your hands and place into a medium mixing bowl. Add eggs and scallions and mix together. In a separate small bowl, add remaining dry ingredients and stir together. Add to zucchini and mix thoroughly.

Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add oil to cover bottom of pan. When hot, stir zucchini mixture and dip out 1/4 cup (level) of batter and pour into pan. With a spatula, gently shape into a pancake. Cook about 3 minutes, adjusting heat if needed. Flip and cook 3 more minutes, adding more oil to the pan as needed to prevent sticking. Drain on paper towel before serving. Makes 8 pancakes.
