Wash and shred zucchini on a fine shredder (DO NOT PEEL).
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs; add shredded zucchini and mix well using a fork.
Add flour, sugar, salt and olive oil and stir well to blend.
Finally, add baking powder and mix using a spoon (Batter consistency should be like heavy whipping cream).
Preheat griddle to 425- 450F.
If using a heavy duty frying pan, heat to medium-high heat; adjust heat if necessary.
Rub grill or frying pan with oil before cooking each batch of pancakes.
Spoon batter onto hot griddle (about 2 tablespoons for each pancake).
Cook until bubbles on the top of the pancake almost stop, about 1 1/2 minutes; turn pancake over and continue to cook for another 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until pancakes are done.
When done, rub pancakes with melted butter and place in a preheated 250 F oven to keep warm until the remainder are cooked, or serve immediately.
Serve with your choice of jams or syrups.
Also very good with sour cream or yogurt along with your choice of jams or syrups, or you can eat them just plain.
These pancakes are delicious for breakfast, brunch or just as a snack anytime.
