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

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 ;)

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!
