Recipe Notes

You can substitute all-purpose flour if you prefer.

Extras can be kept, covered, at room temperature for up to 2 days. After that, store them in the fridge (for another 2-3 days) or freeze them. You can pop them straight from the fridge or freezer into the microwave to warm up for a quick breakfast on the go.
