Looking for a different kind of pancake? These are so delicious and easy to make. With the summer growing season here, why not enjoy the fresh harvest and get your veggies in?

You can also play around with it, use carrots, or sweet potatoes – have some fun!

They freeze well; cool and place parchment paper between layers; pull them out to reheat. Also works great for lunch or dinner.
