Recipe FAQ

  1. Can I freeze the pancake batter? Yes, you can! Pour the leftover batter into a freezer-safe container and freeze it for up to 3 months. Thaw it in the refrigerator overnight before cooking.
  2. Can I use steel-cut oats instead of old-fashioned oats? While it’s best to stick with old-fashioned oats for a smoother texture, you can use steel-cut oats if you prefer a heartier pancake.
  3. Can I skip the ground cinnamon? Of course, you can, but keep in mind that the cinnamon adds a wonderful flavor and aroma to the pancakes.
