Following up on my post from last week, here are two fun breakfast recipe ideas that can be made in muffin pans and frozen to eat later. Which makes them conveniently portioned and easy to take on the go!
Baked oatmeal cups
Baked oatmeal cups look similar to a muffin, but they are made with the ingredients you would use to make oatmeal in a bowl, meaning they do not contain flour. Flavors can be mixed and matched just like you would when you make your own bowl of oatmeal. The options are limitless! These can be kept in an airtight container, in the fridge for 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 6 months. These individual oatmeal cups can also be used for snacks and be packed in lunches. Thaw on the counter-top or in the fridge overnight. Or warm them up in the microwave or oven.
Check out this recipe for 6 different flavor ideas! This particular recipe is made using plant-based milk and ground flax seed instead of egg, so they are vegetarian and vegan, but feel free to use your favorite milk and/or eggs if you don’t have flax seed.
Egg Muffins or Mini Frittatas
Eggs are a great protein food in the morning, but you may not always have time to cook some up when you are in a rush. In comes pre-made egg muffins! These mini frittatas made in muffin tins are easy to customize to your liking, and as a bonus you can include some veggies in there to start your day on the right foot! These can be stored in an airtight container, in the fridge for 5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months. Warm them up in the microwave before eating.
Check out this recipe for egg muffins 3-ways! These are also easy to customize to your liking. Add your favorite meats, veggies, cheese and herbs to make them your own!
I hope you enjoy trying these recipes. I am going to be making some of these perfect grab-and-go breakfast this weekend! We have a busy time coming up with spring activities starting up, so these will be great for mom and kids on the go!
