Tips for Storing & Reheating

  • For best results, try not to overload the batter with too many mix-ins or they won’t hold together.
  • Follow the instructions with your waffle maker to ensure you are not adding too much batter and causing it to overflow!
  • Keep leftovers in a zippered bag in the refrigerator and reheat in the toaster, air fryer, or toaster oven.
  • Freeze leftovers between sheets of parchment paper for up to 4 weeks and reheat from frozen.
