In a large bowl, whisk together pancake mix, milk, applesauce, wheat germ, zest and 1 tablespoon oil and whisk 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, form each pancake by dropping 1/4 cup batter onto the skillet. Cook until it begins to bubble, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer. Repeat with remaining batter and oil to make 8 or 9 pancakes total.
