Zucchini Noodle Bread Pancakes

One of the easiest way to squeeze in more vegetables into your day is to fold them into mixes, like breads and of course, pancake mixes.

While you’re not necessarily lowering the calorie count of something by folding in veggies, you’re increasing the amount of nutrients in your finished product, thereby making the overall food more nutrient-dense. And we need nutrients to fuel our bodies and keep them functioning well!

So, fold veggies into your mixes and get closer to your daily dose of needed veggies, like today’s zucchini noodle bread pancake!

This idea is especially helpful when trying to get stubborn veggie-haters to eat more veggies! Simply spiralize a veggie and fold it into this pancake mix – and voila: a serving of veggies!

I used Bob’s Red Mill’s Organic 7-Grain Pancake & Waffle Mix and simply added some zucchini bread flavor, like ground nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and walnuts. These pancakes are dairy-free, made with almond milk, and made with coconut oil for a slightly sweet, coconut taste.

This pancake mix has all wholesome ingredients and is made with whole grains, resulting in a tasty, good-for-you pancake. The mix includes whole grain wheat, rye, spelt, corn, oat, Kamut(R), quinoa and brown rice flours, and flaxseed meal for even extra nutrition. Plus, it’s organic – so you know there are no gnarly additives.

These pancakes would also work well with spiralized apples, pears, or carrots! Imagine a carrot cake pancake? Ah – next time!

The zucchini noodles here help keep the pancake’s moistness, since this batter can be a bit dense. If you’re making these and find them not smooth, just add an extra splash of almond milk!

Wow! What a fun and healthy way to eat your vegetables everyday. I can't wait to try this recipe!
Sharon S says:
According to Bob's website, 1/3 cup of his pancake mix is 190 calories. If you are using one cup for one pancake, how can the calories be 139 with all other ingredients included?
Julia Smith says:
Here's a breakdown of the calories (obviously more exact measurements would yield a firmer number). I am not including cooking spray, which would have to be measured during cooking, or the garnishes (maple syrup/walnuts). 570 calories - 1 cup pancake mix (I used Bob Red Mill's Organic 7 Grain Pancake Mix) 6 calories - 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 6 calories - 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 117 calories - 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted and brought to room temperature 15 calories - 1/2 cup almond milk 78 calories (assuming large egg) 1 egg 12 calories - 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 20 calories - 1 small zucchini, Blade D, noodles trimmed TOTAL: 824 calories The recipe makes 6-8 pancakes. If 6, it would be 137 calories each. If 8, it would be 103 each.

cleaned the grill today, which inspired me to grill for dinner, so I kept it simple with grilled potatoes, broccoli and chicken sausage. 🥦🥔 I also made some BBQ tempeh for myself, which was nice and hearty and I am excited to make it more this summer 🌽👏🏼 basically, I steamed it for 10 minutes and then slathered it in barbecue sauce and threw it on the grill for 10-15 minutes. super easy and delish! 🙏🏼

what’s everyone having for dinner tonight?! 👇🏼 #whatsfordinner #vegandinnerideas #vegandinners

it's friyyyyyyaayyyy and that means cheese & cracker plates, right? 🍷 my Pistachio & Cranberry Vegan Cheese Ball 🌱 is perfect for any occasion (yes, friday is an occasion!), a throwback recipe from my Inspiralized & Beyond cookbook! if you have the book, flip to page 88 and make this - definitely no cheese coma and you'll be amazed how cheese-like it tastes (kind of like a spreadable ricotta with tons of herby goodness!) 👏🏼⁣

what's everyone's weekend plans? I'll be in NYC for the second part of the photoshoot for my collaborative cookbook with @feedinglittles! 👯‍♀️⁣
