Courgette Pancakes (WF/GF)

I’m on a mission to find new ways to get veggies into the boy. He likes veggies and on a good day will eat pretty much anything. However when he is under the weather or teething he pulls a right face and hands it all right back to me. Which is frustrating. I find as a general rule he isn’t as keen when he is given large chunks of vegetables on the side of a meal. What he really gets on well with is having small pieces of vegetables mixed in something. All well and good, but it can leave me scratching my head a lunchtimes.

Lunch in our house is often a quick, thrown together, snack type meal – typically with vegetables on the side. So today I tried out adding grated courgette to my pancake recipe. OH MY DAYS. This was good. Amazingness in a pancake. Miss K doesn’t like courgette but will tolerate it if I grate it. She ate these up, asked for more and gave me a pass mark.

The boy looked at them and snarfed them up. Then asked for his train book “Choo Choo” Top marks I think.
