Whole Wheat Summer Squash Pancakes

It was a dark and dreary night…

Rain poured incessantly outside the window..

With a crack of lightning, the power flicks off and on again…

My original plan was to use an awesome recipe online, but due to the intense storm I did not want to push my luck with the computer..

So I made this one up.



Whole Wheat Summer Squash Pancakes

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg ( can use egg substitue)

1 medium squash

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 to 1/2 cup milk



*Yields about 5-6 pancakes


1. First clean and peel the yellow squash.


2. Chop up the squash.


3. Place the squash in a medium pot filled halfway with water. Place pot over medium heat on stove.
