Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup grated zucchini, squeezed dry in a paper towel
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup banana, chopped in 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Maple syrup, for serving


  • Large Bowl
  • Step 1

    To install the grill grate, slide it into the front of the base so it hooks in, then press down on the back until it clicks into place. Place griddle on top of grill grate so it sits flat.

  • Step 2

    Select BBQ GRIDDLE, set temperature to 375°F, and set time for 20 minutes. Close hood and press the dial to begin preheating (preheating will take approximately 10 minutes).

  • Step 3

    In a large bowl, add the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, ground cinnamon, baking powder, milk, vegetable oil, water, vanilla extract, and zucchini and mix until fully combined.

  • Step 4

    Brush the griddle with coconut oil. Then pour 1/3 cup pancake batter onto the griddle. You should be able to fit two pancakes on the griddle at a time. Be sure to leave about 2 inches between the pancakes. Repeat with the remaining batter.

  • Step 5

    Cook until the pancakes start to bubble, about 3 minutes. Then top with bananas and chocolate chips.

  • Step 6

    Flip the pancakes and cook for another 3 minutes or until the middle is cooked through.

  • Step 7

    Remove the cooked pancakes from the griddle and serve with maple syrup if desired.
