Every Friday I feature a small round-up of five delicious recipes from here and around the web. This week’s topic: 5 Easy Breakfast Recipes to Make Ahead and Freeze.
Mornings are the worst time to try to get a satisfying breakfast into that sleepy belly of yours. But you’re hungry! And you want to eat right, and you want your family to eat right too! But you have exactly two minutes to make that happen. Guess what? You’re in luck! If you’ve got a little extra time on the weekends and a freezer in your life, you can assemble tasty breakfasts ahead of time and stick them in the freezer. A little thaw and those harried mornings are made. Good morning, belly!

A lot of trial-and-error went into this hearty muffin/granola hybrid recipe that I created for Oh My Veggies, so our freezer was full of Aussie bites. Until I went to grab one and what had been a stuffed-to-the-brim gallon-size bag was now just one lone, single little bite. Turns out my husband had been dipping into the freezer every morning before work. These freezer-friendly bites are satisfying, delicious, and – maybe best of all – perfectly portable.

Hearty pancakes and tasty muffins both freeze extraordinarily well. We just pop pancakes into the toaster; muffins just need a bit of time at room temp or a quick zap in the microwave.
