Whole Grain Buttermilk Squash Pancakes

This is my absolute favorite recipe for pancakes.!

Delicious, Whole Grain Squash Pancakes—I was making stuffed squash for dinner and after hollowing out a dozen or so squash, I had a big pile of core leftover. I usually just make zucchini bread but decided to try something new. I came across this recipe from twopeasandtheirpod.com and ecstatic with how delicious they turned out! The whole family gobbled them up and asked for more.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or white whole wheat)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, plus more for greasing pan
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup grated zucchini or summer squash (squeezed out and then measured)
  • Maple syrup and butter, for serving

Instructions

  • Step 1–In a large bowl mix together:
    • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice
  • Step 2–In a separate bowl mix together:
    • 2 cups buttermilk
    • 3 tablespoons butter, melted (melt the butter in the skillet you’ll use for cooking)
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup grated zucchini or summer squash (squeeze it out a little with your hands and then measure it)
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Step 3–Combine the bowls and stir until just combined.
  • Step 4–Heat a griddle, non-stick or cast iron pan over medium heat. Spread a tiny film of butter onto the pan (or just use the residue butter from when it was melted). Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the heated skillet; use the bottom of the measuring cup or a spoon to help the pancakes spread into about a 4″ round. If the batter doesn’t readily pour out of the measuring cup, add a little milk to loosen it.
  • Cook on medium-low until the bottom of pancakes are golden brown, about 1 minute (I often cover the pan to ensure the middle gets cooked as well). Flip and cook, uncovered, until browned on the underside.
