Sheet cake to save time

Thank you for this recipe. Trying to save time, and have freezer food for later, I tripled the recipe and spread it all out on a sheet cake pan. then cut into squares. I also added hemp seeds for protein and sundried tomatoes. YUM. Thank you.

I love the way you did it, thank you for sharing! - Alena

Awesome and healthy!

I didn't have regular flour so I threw in some coconut flour and an extra egg for sticking power ;). I topped them with tzatziki sauce. Yummy!!

Thanks for sharing that! Next time I'll also try to make them with coconut flour ;) and tzatziki sounds like a great addition! - Alena

Texture Help

I can't seem to get the pancakes to fry... they are always too moist or burnt! Any tips? (The mix always tastes good, though! Haha)

Some squash has more moisture. Next time, once grated, let it sit for about 10 minutes and use two layers of paper towel to squeeze the water out of the squash (put it in a ball and squeeze). This step should help ;)

Thanks for the Review

This recipe was recommended

This recipe was recommended in reply to my request for a zucchini fritters recipe. These were perfect. They were even great the next day too! You won't be disappointed.

An amazing recipe!

An amazing recipe!, though I changed it a little bit. I used ground oatmeal instead of flour. My kids loved them! Will 100% make them again!
