Pancakes for days! 🥞
Do you enjoy keto pancakes, but not the process of making them from scratch in the morning for breakfast? Well, today’s your lucky day as I’m sharing an easy meal prep idea. Read on to see how simple it is to make a large batch of pancakes to freeze for future use!
And who says pancakes are just for breakfast?! We often do what we like to call breakfast dinners! My family loves when we do this at dinnertime – usually we’ll cook up some eggs, bacon, and of course, keto pancakes. 😋 It’s such a simple, yummy, and quick keto dinner idea!
Items you’ll need for this meal prep idea:
1. First, you will need to make at least a double batch of our famous Keto Pancakes!
If you haven’t made these pancakes yet, you are missing out! Not only are they super easy to make (you literally throw everything in a blender), but they are also so yummy. We recommend doubling or even tripling the recipe so you’ll have plenty of pancakes for future use. Once you have all your pancakes made, let them cool completely.
2. While the pancakes are cooling, cut pieces of parchment paper into squares.
Placing parchment paper squares between each pancake will prevent them from sticking together in the freezer, making it easier to separate and grab just a few pancakes when desired.
3. Portion out pancakes into freezer bags.
If using small quart-size bags:
Place the desired serving amount of pancakes in a small freezer bag with parchment squares between each pancake. This method is great for family members who cook themselves breakfast on their own. The pre-portioned bags ensure the same serving size for all.
If using a large gallon-size bag:
Place all pancakes, with parchment squares in between, into a large gallon-size freezer bag. This method is great for those who prepare breakfast for the family in the morning. It will also require fewer baggies for freezer storage.
4. Place pancakes in the freezer to store until ready to eat!
Pop the bags of pancakes into the freezer to keep them fresh until you’d like to enjoy them. The pancakes will be best if used within a month, but my family typically runs through the batch within the first week or two after storing. They’re simply that good!
5. When ready to eat, remove the keto pancakes from the freezer and cook in microwave or toaster.
Remove the parchment paper from the pancakes and place on a microwavable plate in a single layer. Heat in the microwave for 30-40 seconds until warm.
Remove the parchment paper from the pancakes and place a single pancake into the toaster slot. Toast for 1-2 minutes until warmed through and crisp on the outside edges.
Now it’s time to enjoy!
This is a daily go-to for my family. I hope this helps you save time in the mornings, too!
