3 grams net carbs
Serving Size : 8

  • 1 pound zucchini -- coarsely grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 4 each large eggs -- lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup Carbquik Bake Mix
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 ounces crumbled blue cheese -- (1/2 cup)
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans -- or walnuts
  • olive oil for frying

1. In a colander, toss zucchini with salt and let stand 30 minutes to drain excess water. Press zucchini with the back of a spoon and then blot between paper towels. Place in a medium bowl.
2. Add green onions, eggs, bake mix, parsley, oregano, and pepper; mix well. Fold in the cheese and nuts.
3. Heat oven to warm setting. In a large non-stick skillet, heat a thin layer of oil over medium-high heat. In batches, drop zucchini in heaping tablespoonfuls onto skillet and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to oven to keep warm while preparing remaining pancakes. If you wish, top each hot pancake with a dollop of sour cream.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
