Coconut Zucchini Patties

I wanted to make something yummy for the kiddos and use some of our abundant zucchini. I threw this together and it was SOOOOoooo good!

Nice enough to serve as a dessert for adults, healthy enough to serve as a snack or breakfast for the children.

While I used sweetened coconut, unsweetened would work fine and be a bit more healthy.

The zucchini has so much moisture that you don't any more than the bit of oil and egg. 

Coconut Zucchini Patties
1 cup                pancake mix
1 cup                zucchini, shredded
1/2 cup             coconut
1/2 cup             craisins
1 tablespoon      coconut oil, or vegetable oil
1                      egg
Mix together. Preheat pan on medium. Place by 1/4 cup scoop into pan and flatten slightly. Cook through to golden brown, cooking times will vary between stoves. 

Optional - serve with vanilla simple syrup.
1 cup            sugar
1 cup            water
1 teaspoon    vanilla
Combine sugar and water, cook on high to boiling and sugar is dissolved and syrup has thickened. Turn off heat and add vanilla. A teaspoon of butter can be added as well for an added richness.
