The Chocolate Covered Kate blog has put together a delicious recipe for chocolate chip zucchini pancakes. For many health-conscious consumers, it can be difficult to find a breakfast option that is both filling and nutritious. While pancakes serve as a hearty morning meal, they are often high in sugar and filled with other unhealthy ingredients.

This vegan-friendly recipe puts a healthy twist on the classic pancake recipe by using nutritious ingredients such as spelt flour, rolled oats and grated zucchini. The pancakes are both moist and fluffy, even without the use of fat or oil. The addition of zucchini is important because it provides a hearty dose of vegetables, without compromising the sweet flavor of the pancakes. If you want to give the pancakes an extra dose of sweetness, you can add dark chocolate chips for an indulgent morning treat.
