I’m gluten intolerant, is there anything I could swap for the wheat flour?


Can this be made without the feta cheese? Or any cheese?

Chocolove. The cheese is the binder for this recipe. You would have to switch it out with something else to serve that purpose.


Looks to me like the Egg is the binder in this recipe and I personally don’t see why it would not work without the cheese. Only one way to find out..and worse case is you will have some yummy zucchini pancakes.
