    I made this, but I added pancake mix instead of flour and 1 tsp baking! Mixed zucchini and yellow squash - they disappeared so FAST!!!

    They freeze well. I let them cool and then put in a ziptop bag. To reheat, I thaw and then heat in a skillet with a little oil or cooking spray.

    Oh Boy! Can't wait to use my fresh zuchini on these. I'm thinkin' for breakfast as well! I'm going to use white whole wheat flour to make them healthier and stay in my eating plan.
