These Zucchini pancakes have a Middle Eastern twist to them. I love all the different spices and flavours used in Middle Eastern Cuisine. The more flavours the better! You don’t often come across bland Middle Eastern food!

These pancakes make a good lunch, dinner or even snack! They’re light, fluffy and they don’t take much time at all to prepare. You can also have them as a side dish – goes really well with some grilled chicken. Sadly I didn’t have any in my kitchen. (Ha! that rhymes :P)

Low calorie, low carb and low fat! Who doesn’t like that combination 🙂

  1. Just made some for dinner 🙂 loved it! I used eggplant flour instead of nutritional yeast, it got a little darker than yours! Any tips in how to cook the pancake to look yummy?

    Thanks 😀

    1. Hey Adriana 🙂 I’m so glad you enjoyed them! I’ve never heard of eggplant flour before! But I love eggplants so now I’m intrigued 😀 will have to see if I can get my hands on some. Haha pancake presentation with me seem to be hit and miss, sometimes they look so ugly and uneven and other times they look perfect! It does depend on whether I’m in a hurry or not. I just try to shape them as round as possible using a spoon to even out the edges and I try to make them the same size but apart from that, I have no tricks to make them look pretty 😛

  2. Hi! I reaaallly wanna try this recipe but I don’t wanna mess it up so I gotta be extra careful… can I ask how many grams (or cups) of zucchini did you use? Im in argentina and the zucchinis here are tinyyy so I don’t really know how much to use. Thank you!

    1. Hi Shannon 🙂 I would say I used about 100 grams. I know I should be more precise with my measurements! Hope you do get the chance to try these pancakes and let me know if you do! 😀 x
