Storing your Spinach pancakes
Store your pancakes in the fridge for up to 2 days. If you want to store them longer, I recommend freezing them.
Freeze these spinach pancakes for up to one month. When freezing, make sure to add wax paper between each pancake to keep them from sticking together.
Take the frozen pancakes and place them into your toaster. Reheat on defrost. They make the perfect quick breakfast on busy mornings.
I hope you enjoy making these delicious and nutritious spinach pancakes for your little ones.
