    Is it truly supposed to be potato flour? Or can potato starch be used instead?

      Yep, it is potato flour as per the original recipe flour blend… BUT pancakes are very flexible and forgiving due to how they are cooked, so you can try replacing the potato flour with almond meal or coconut flour for best results in this recipe. Or simply add a bit more of another gluten free flour until the batter is a good texture.

  2. These zucchini pancakes look absolutely delicious! Zucchini is so plentiful right now and we love finding new uses beyond the typical breakfast zucchini quick bread. These cakes look so simple and delicious, I don’t think they’ll last in the office very long! Thanks for sharing this great recipe! :)

    Can these be made without eggs or egg whites?
