Zucchini Sweet Potato Pancakes

As I peeked into the fridge I saw a container of shredded zucchini and a sweet potato staring at me. As I started thinking about what I could do with them I started thinking about zucchini latkes and pumpkin pancakes and one idea led to another and I ended up at zucchini sweet potato pancakes. I did a quick search and found that I was not alone with this idea and decided to test this recipe from Budget Paleo. These are simple with a subtle flavor and would be great with a chicken sausage or some other savory protein with some spice.

Zucchini Sweet Potatoe Pancakes
  • 4-5 cups of shredded sweet potato and zucchini ( used about 1/2 and 1/2)
  • 8 eggs
  •  1/2 tsp sea salt
  •  1/4 tsp coarse ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sweet basil (dried)
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • Butter or Ghee for frying in (this is and important flavor ingredient too)


  1. Crack your eggs into a large bowl and beat well with a fork or whisk.
  2. Add in the salt, pepper, basil, mix well and stir in the sweet potatoes, zucchini and almond flour, mix well.
  3. Then place a small skillet over medium heat (give or take a few degrees depending on your stove), melt a few TBSP of butter.
  4. Then using a ladle, scoop up a ladle full of the mixture and pour into the pan.
  5. Let the one side cook for a few minutes until it’s to your desired doneness, then flip and cook the other side.
  6. Remove to a platter and repeat the steps for cooking the rest of the batter ( you may have to add more butter/ghee as you go along, butter makes it better).
