Savory Summer Squash Pancakes

Author Notes: Very flexible, depending on what vegetable you're overrun with at the time. (If you add grated carrot, it gives a crunchy texture as the carrot won't fully cook.) Good for making big batches and freezing. Pretty healthy! I like Trader Joe's whole grain Baking Mix, but have also used Buckwheat flour, Chickpea flour, corn muffin mix (sweet)---get creative! Add curry powder or other spices!
Makes squash season so much more palatable....
