Made these for myself this morn for breakfast. Very light & fluffy. For those picky eaters, the green wasn’t terribly noticeable and the zucchini didn’t come across as a flavor. Only yielded 6 not 8 ?

Can you prepare this batter the night before, then cook the following morning? Or will the batter act funny?

We haven’t tried letting it sit overnight. If you want to prep ahead, I would mix the dry ingredients, and combine the wet ingredients, and stir it all together in the morning. Good luck!
