Zucchini Pancakes

These delicious zucchini fritters make a great, fiber-filled breakfast.


2 eggs

1 medium zucchini

1/4 cup almond or other nut flour

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon cloves

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 cup coconut oil (softened)


Wash and peel the rind from the zucchini, grate until it is in very fine, wet shreds.  Mix nut meal, baking powder and spices together in a large bowl.  If possible, sift twice (this will make your pancakes more fluffy.  Mix oil and zucchini into your pancake batter and combine until everything is incorporated together.  Divide into four sections and fry for 3 – 4 minutes per side (or until golden brown) on a large, lightly oiled frying pan or griddle.  Serve hot!


*If you asked me a year ago why I go to the gym I would’ve told you to workout. But then in December of 2014 I stepped into Crossfit Lighthouse. The first day I walked in I was a cocky twenty-year-old kid who thought he was in great shape… That day was a huge wake up call. A 60-year-old man who I now know as “Frank the Tank” kicked my ass in the workout. At first I didn’t know what to think. Was I unfit, out of shape, or was I just plain pathetic? I expected the coaches and members to look down on me. However the exact opposite happened. Everyone congratulated me on finishing the workout and made me feel welcomed.

As the weeks went by I learned a lot about the facility. The equipment was of the highest degree and the coaches were inspiring. I got to witness what the coaches were physically capable of and I thought I would never be at their level. Even though I doubted myself the coaches always pushed me to do my best. Every single coach wanted me to get to the next level. I was inspired to be like them.

After spending an entire year with Crossfit Lighthouse’s state of the art facility and inspiring coaches, I have developed passion for the sport. I walk in everyday looking to push my limits. Crossfit Lighthouse has changed my life for the better and I cannot thank the owners, Jack and Dan, enough for creating such an amazing community. So now, one year later, if you asked me why I go to the gym, I would tell you its to spend time with my knew friends and family.*
