Preparation

Step 1

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

In a separate bowl whisk together the egg yolks, Greek yogurt, vanilla, brown sugar, and honey.

Add flour mixture to the wet mixture, and stir just to combined; do not over mix! The batter will be thick, so don't worry if there are a lot of clumps left.

Add egg whites to a large bowl or the body of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat the egg whites on high speed until soft peaks begin to form.

With a rubber spatula fold egg whites into flour/yogurt mixture, stirring until fully incorporated. Stir in zucchini, mix until just incorporated. Always be sure to watch your mixing, as over-mixed batter = rubbery, tough results.

Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

Ladle 1/3 cup scoops of the batter into the skillet, only cooking a few at a time so they don't blend together.

Top pancakes with honey, syrup, berries, or anything else your little heart desires! Serve at once.
