    Would this recipe freeze well? My kids are too impatient to wait up to 15 minutes for it to set, would be good to pre make ahead of time.

      These are on the delicate side because of the nature of the quinoa flour, so if you wanted to make them for freezing, I’d switch some of the banana with some egg for extra strength in the batter.
