These savory pancakes are similar to Chinese and Korean scallion pancakes, but have a healthy twist with whole wheat flour.

Ingredients

Pancakes

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cup green onions (or about 8 stalks)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons oil (grapeseed, canola, coconut, or olive oil)

Dipping Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons low sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

Directions

Pancakes
Step 1
Add eggs to a large bowl and whisk. Add water and flour and whisk until well combined.
Step 2
Slice green onions into 1-inch pieces. Add to batter, along with salt.
Step 3
Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add about 1/2 teaspoon oil to the pan to lightly coat the bottom.
Step 4
Add about 1 cup of batter to the pan. Swirl the pan to make the pancake an even round shape, and use a wooden spoon to spread out the scallions if necessary.
Step 5
When the edges start to brown and the underside is golden brown, about 3-4 minutes, flip the pancake. Continue cooking until the underside is golden brown, another 3-4 minutes. Set aside and repeat steps 3-5 until you've used up all the batter. Cut into wedges and serve with dipping sauce.
Dipping Sauce
Step 6
Whisk together ingredients for dipping sauce.

Mexican Zucchini Fritters

Mexican Zucchini Fritters - Low carb, gluten free, grain free, dairy free. Follow guesswhoscooking.com on Twitter @guesswhoscookin and on Pinterest www.pinterest.com/guesswhoscookin

Ingredients

1/2 cup onion, diced

1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced

1/2 cup poblano pepper, diced

2 cups zucchini, shredded

1/4 cup green onion, sliced

4 eggs, whisked

1/2 cup almond meal

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 teaspoon cumin

salt and pepper to taste

coconut oil for cooking

 

Directions

Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add about 1 teaspoon coconut oil. When the pan is hot, add onions. Cook 1-2 minutes, then add garlic, and cook for 30-60 seconds until fragrant. Add bell peppers and poblano peppers. Cook until vegetables are somewhat tender and onions are somewhat translucent. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine zucchini, green onion, eggs, almond meal, cumin, salt and pepper, then stir in cooked pepper mixture. Preheat a nonstick pan (such as cast iron or ceramic, not Teflon) over medium heat and add about 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil. Once pan is hot, add about 1/4 of the zucchini mixture. Once the edges are cooked and the underside is golden brown, flip the fritter. Cook until the underside is golden brown.

 

Note: If you don’t have almond meal, you could try coconut flour or whole wheat flour, but I haven’t personally tried it.

In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. Add eggs, almond milk, and liquid stevia, and mix very well until smooth. Preheat a nonstick pan over medium heat and melt the coconut oil in the pan. Pour about 1/4 of the pancake batter into the pan for each pancake. Drop in blueberries or other mix-ins into the pancakes. When the bottom of the pancake is golden brown, flip and let the other side cook until golden brown.

I don’t have an exact recipe for Blueberry Chia Jam, but you basically heat frozen blueberries (~3/4 cup?) in a small saucepan with a small amount of water (1/4 cup?) and some chia seeds (1 Tbsp + 1 tsp?). Cook for 5-10 minutes, mashing blueberries as they soften. Add sweetener of choice if you want. Eventually, it will thicken and be jam-like. You can also make this with other frozen berries (add 1 tsp lemon juice for strawberry) but it may not look as pretty with the gray chia seeds.
