Frozen Pancakes!

Are your mornings as hectic as ours? Trying to get three children up, dressed, fed and out the door can be a big task! I try to make our life as simple as a I can and sometimes it's easy to grab prepackaged to make sure mornings are easy. I really don't like feeding my kids prepackaged from the grocery store though so I try to make my own. Not only do I KNOW what's in the ingredients but it also saves us so much money. So today I wanted to show you how to make your own prepackaged pancakes. It's super simple!!! 

The first thing you want to do is make your own delicious pancakes. If you use a mix GREAT and if you do homemade GREAT! What I usually do is make several extra when I make fresh breakfasts on the weekends. Other times I will make a ton of pancakes to get ahead! 

After your pancakes have cooled take a cookie sheet and line it with parchment paper. Spread the pancakes out onto the parchment.

Next place the whole cookie sheet in the freezer. This will allow the pancakes to freeze separately so they don't stick together later.

I usually leave them in the freezer an hour. Once they are good and hard I take the cookie sheet out and get them packaged two per package. I use fold over sandwich bags I get at the Dollar Store!

After they are all packaged I place them in a zip lock bag so they are all packaged together for fast grab in the mornings! 

See it's that easy!!! You can do the same thing with waffles and even french toast! So the next time you pick up at the package of Eggo's remember that you can make your own delicious fast breakfast!! It will be a lot less than $2.00-2.50 a box!!


  1. Great idea! I only ever make fresh pancakes, but Chloe Jo would love to have pancakes more often!

  2. Ahhhhh! Just the kind of tips I always need! Thanks!! :)
