Chef's Tip: For convenience refrigerate any leftover, cooked pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days, or wrap cooked pancakes in waxed paper, seal in freezer safe container and freeze for up to one month. These are perfect for quick snacks to take to school or the park, spread with nut or seed butters or sandwich with eggs.
