Are there instructions for mixing pancakes just 1 serving at a time, vs. mixing the whole bag?
Currently we do not have a recipe conversion for individual servings. However, we are taking note of the feedback and will be working towards offering a recipe that makes 3-4 pancakes/waffles at a time. For now, we recommend individually wrapping cooked waffles or pancakes, and refrigerating or freezing: they may then provide you with a quick grab and go meal, by popping the frozen waffles into a toaster!
