Yellow Squash Recipe for Pancakes!

So much yellow squash!!! 

4 small pancakes and 2 sausage links on a plate with a small bowl or salad, jar of maple syrup, and glass of water behind it

Is that your problem too?  This is the time of year when yellow squash goes wild.  There are a lot of ideas out there for zucchini, but fewer yellow squash recipes.  I found one at  Check out their original yellow squash recipe for pancakes at

I adapted that recipe (see below)to fit my needs.  So grab all those yellow squash and let’s go!



Sliced yellow squash in a saucepan

There’s not a lot of prep for this yellow squash recipe, but you do need to make sure you wash the squash really well and then trim the ends off.  Cut the squash into thin slices and add them to a saucepan.  Cover with about 3 cups of water and put them on the stove to boil.  Once  they reach boiling, turn the temperature down, place the lid on top, and simmer for about 5 minutes. 

Preparing the Wet Ingredients

Now comes the fun part!  Drain the yellow squash in a colander and put it in your blender.  Puree the squash until smooth.  Melt the butter and add it to the squash.  Measure the milk into a glass measuring cup and break your eggs into it.  With the blender running, slowly pour the milk and eggs into the blender until it is mixed and eggs are beaten.

Preparing the Dry Ingredients

In a large bowl, put your 2 cups of Crushed Wheat #1.  Our Fathers Foods crushes their wheat instead of grinding it which allows the cells to remain intact and the nutrition to remain more accessible.  I have found that Crushed Wheat #1 can be used in place of all purpose flour as long as I use slightly less than the recipe calls for.metal measuring cup full of flour in front of bag of crushed wheat  If I use a 1:1 substitution, the recipe sometimes turns out a little dry, but if I use scant amounts, it works great!  So, after you add the crushed wheat, add the raw sugar, Redmond Real Salt, and baking powder.  I always use Redmond Real Salt because the minerals remain in it – they have not been processed out!  This makes the recipe even healthier for my family!

Let the magic happen!

Now it’s time to pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients.  Stir them together only until they are just blended.  Do not over-stir. pancake batter in large white bowl with wooden spoon Once combined, let the batter rest while you get your skillet ready.  Use a medium-hot, lightly greased skillet.  Make sure you use a neutral flavored oil that has a high smoke point such as avocado oil or refined coconut oil.  After a few minutes, drop the batter onto the hot skillet using a small measuring cup or scoop.  Cook them until bubbles form on the top and the edges are dry, then flip them!  Cook another minute or so until they are cooked all the way through.
