Back to School Baking Day

by Dana S on August 20, 2013

It is that back to school time again! This year, I’ve got two little ones in school this year. That means double the lunches to pack! Add a new baby and chaos will ensue without a plan. So yesterday I took time to have a baking day to fill my freezer with healthy, homemade baked goods to make packing lunches easier. Here’s my results:

  • Zucchini Bread: Top slices of zucchini bread with cream cheese and make into a sandwich. This bread is also great for a quick breakfast or packed dessert.

  • Blueberry MuffinsAldi had fresh blueberries on sale for $1.29 so I stocked up. I baked half of the muffins and froze the other half of the batter to make fresh muffins later. I pair a muffin with a cheese stick in place of a sandwich.

  • Mini Pizza Crusts:  I try to always keep a bag of these mini pizza crusts in the freezer. Then in the morning, I pair 1-2 crusts with small containers of pizza sauce and cheese. These homemade Pizza Lunchables are a hit!

Good Morning. Your post made a light bulb go on over my head. I did not know that you could freeze muffin batter! Do you have any general tips as to how to freeze and how long it takes to thaw the batter to baking consistancy for the batch[es] you bake? What a great idea!
