In a large bowl, whisk together pancake mix, milk, applesauce, lemon zest and 1 tablespoon of the oil until combined. Stir in zucchini and walnuts until well combined.  

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Brush lightly with some of the remaining oil. Working in batches, pour 1/4 cup batter into the skillet for each pancake and cook until bubbles form on the top, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more, or until golden brown.  

Repeat with remaining batter and oil to make 8 or 9 pancakes total.
