Zucchini Pancakes

Zucchini Pancakes

1 medium stalk zucchini, ends removed and coarsely grated
2 eggs
2-3 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon red onion, chopped
freshly ground black pepper
2-3 fresh basil leaves, minced
1 teaspoon coconut flour
salt, to taste

Grate zucchini into a bowl. Add eggs and mix thoroughly.

Start heating oil in a large skillet.

Add onion, black pepper and basil to the zucchini. If the batter looks too liquidly, add a bit of coconut flour just to thicken slightly.

When the oil is hot but not smoking, put a forkful of batter into the pan, immediately mashing it down with a fork to spread the batter and form thin pancakes that can crisp easily. Repeat till pan is full. It's OK if the pancakes run together.

When the pancakes are golden brown or deeper brown on the underside, flip them over and cook on the second side. If they have stuck together, cut them in the skillet and flip them individually. When golden brown on the second side, remove pancakes. Drain on paper towels.
