Zucchini and Yellow Squash Patties (paleo/gluten-free pancakes)

Years ago, I fell in love with a similar recipe in my Weight Watchers days.  The original Squash Patties recipe called for just yellow squash as well as cheese.  I miss that recipe, so I came up with this Paleo version.  The addition of the almond meal, because it gives it that “cornmeal” feeling.

Although this recipe has a mix of green zucchini and yellow squash, either one could stand alone in this recipe. Just use a total of three cups of what you choose.

Zucchini and Yellow Squash Patties (paleo/gluten-free)


  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced onion
  • 1 large zucchini, grated (1.5 cups)
  • 1 large yellow squash, grated (1.5 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon almond meal
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • coconut oil
  • sea salt and pepper to taste


  1. Whisk the eggs in a bowl.  Mix in the next five ingredients.  Heat 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in a large skillet at medium-high heat.  Spoon about 1/4 cup of mixture into the pan…you can fit 3-4 pancakes in the pan at a time.  After approximately 2 minutes (when browned), flip and brown the other side.  Let cool.
  2. Enjoy!

    Ooh, these sounds so yummy, pinned for future use!

  2. How critical are the eggs to structure in this recipe? Egg allergy – wondering if substitute, like flax egg or chia egg would be an adequate substitute. Thanks!

    • The eggs are definitely crucial to hold it all together…I've never experimented with flax or chia egg…sorry! But please do tell me the outcome if you experiment with alternatives. Thank you!

  3. Made these tonight, totally delicious! Thank you :-)

    I made these for breakfast today, and they were so good. I added Flavor God's 'everything seasoning' and topped them with avocado and chipotle salsa. Yum!

    I only have zucchini…Would it be okay to double that without the squash?
