How long will Pancake Bread last for?

Can Pancake Bread be frozen?

Yes! Like most any bread, this pancake bread will last 3-6 months in the freezer. Slice up your Pancake Bread, and cover 2 to 3 slices in cling wrap. Place the wrapped bread slices in a freezer bag and store for later.

How do you make Pancake Bread?

Making this awesome gluten-free meal prep is pretty straightforward. Begin by preheating your oven to 350℉. While you wait, coat your loaf pan in with coconut oil, and place parchment paper over it.

Next, combine oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a medium-size bowl, and pour into the prepared loaf pan.

Now it’s time to create your crumble topping! In a separate bowl, simply mix all ingredients until combined and crumbly, then sprinkle over the batter in your loaf pan. Bake for 30-45 minutes on the middle oven rack, until it passes the toothpick test.

Cut, divide, and serve with a drizzle of maple syrup alongside pomegranate seed-topped Greek yogurt.

  1. Not specific to this recipe. The meals change to adjust to the amount of meals you want. This is great however the utensil/container size does not change. For example I am cooking a meatloaf and have adjusted the meatloaf for 1.5 meals. The recipes don't account for change in amount of food per meatloaf pan. This is a problem that I don't think gets noticed.
