Blueberry Zucchini Pancakes

Blueberry Zucchini Pancakes
Fresh homemade pancakes are one of my favourite breakfasts and I am currently crushing on these moist and fluffy blueberry zucchini pancakes! Pancakes could not be easier to make! You simply mix all of the ingredients into a batter and cook them in a pan until lightly golden brown. I have added zucchini, lemon zest and blueberries to these pancakes to give them a fresh hit of summers flavours and they are simply divine! The zucchini helps keep the pancakes nice and moist and the blueberries and lemon zest add plenty of flavour! I like to top these blueberry zucchini pancakes with maple syrup and butter making them one really amazing summer breakfast, lunch or dinner!

These look seriously delicious!!! I crave pancakes a lot but don't make them but twice a year because I slather them in maple syrup to give them flavor, so I don't make them very healthy! With lemon zest and blueberries, there would be so much natural flavor it would help cut the calories a bit for sure! Can't wait to try these, thank you! (Plus, look how pretty they are!)
