Vegetable Pancakes

This is a great side dish that I found on Joyful Abode.  You can use any vegetable that you can shred - carrots, zucchini, be creative!  They make you feel like you are eating a "starchy" side dish - very much a comfort food.

For 4 cakes you will need:
2 Tbsp coconut oil
3 eggs
3 Tbsp milk (or coconut milk)
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 Tbsp coconut flour
chopped green onions
shredded carrots, zucchini, broccoli slaw and/or any other veggies you can shred or cut into very small pieces

1.  Mix oil, eggs, milk, salt, baking powder and coconut flour together in a medium bowl.  Set aside. 
2.  In a skillet, warm a little coconut oil and add onions and vegetables.  Saute until the veggies are soft. 
3.  Add veggies to the egg mixture. 
4.  Heat more oil in skillet.  Drop the mixture by spoonfuls into the pan.  Flip when the edges start to brown.  Cook for a couple more minutes.  
5.  Serve with applesauce or sour cream if desired. 

We served these with Mahi and Cilantro Chutney and used the chutney as a sauce for the cakes - delicious!
