These Zucchini and Oatmeal Pancakes are a fantastic and healthy alternative to pizza, offering a delicious way to enjoy the goodness of zucchinis and oats. Easy to make and incredibly satisfying, these pancakes can be a great addition to any meal of the day. Let’s dive into the recipe for these nutritious pancakes that you’ll want to eat every day.


  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • 100g cheese, grated (choose your favorite type)
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Spring onion and dill, finely chopped, to taste
  • 3-4 tablespoons oatmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Prep the Zucchini:
    • Grate the zucchini into a large mixing bowl. To remove excess moisture, lightly salt the grated zucchini and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes. Then, squeeze out the water either with your hands or by pressing the zucchini against a sieve.
  2. Combine Ingredients:
    • To the grated zucchini, add the grated cheese, eggs, a pinch of salt, black pepper, chopped spring onion, and dill. Mix well to combine.
    • Sprinkle in the oatmeal and baking soda, stirring until the mixture is well combined and holds together. The oatmeal helps to absorb any extra moisture and adds a nice texture to the pancakes.
  3. Cook the Pancakes:
    • Heat a non-stick skillet or frying pan over medium heat and brush it lightly with oil.
    • Spoon the zucchini mixture into the pan, flattening it slightly to form pancakes. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through.
  4. Serve:
    • Serve the pancakes hot, with a side of sour cream, Greek yogurt, or your favorite sauce. They’re also delicious on their own, thanks to the flavorful combination of zucchini, cheese, and herbs.
