Apple Almond-Butter Pancakes FAQs
Can I use another fruit besides apple?
You can definitely use a different fruit than apples in your pancakes. In fact, you can also use another type of nuts—just make sure to swap out the nut butter to match. Go for a pb+j version with peanuts and raspberries or try peaches and cashews!
How should I store leftover pancakes?
You can store your leftover pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will last in the fridge for about 1 week, but the longer they sit, the soggier they'll be.
Alternatively, you can store your leftover pancakes in the freezer. Simply freeze the cooled pancakes on a baking sheet or plate, then store in a ziploc bag or container in the freezer. When you're ready to eat them again, you can reheat the individual pancakes in the microwave or in a toaster.
