Weekend Freezer Baking

Lately on Saturday mornings I have been doing some batch freezer cooking. This past Saturday I dedicated my time to doing some baking. The yield: Brownies, oatmeal muffins and banana bread. I packaged them into individual servings and popped them in the freezer for some quick breakfasts and lunch box treats.

The brownies were from a box mix, but the oatmeal muffins and banana bread came from the Hillbilly Housewife Website HERE and HERE. I loved the way both of them turned out. The muffins are healthy and not too sweet. The banana bread came out moist and tasty, thanks to the step by step instructions. The recipe called for grated orange peel, which I didn't have on hand. I will definitely be making more of these with the grated orange peel to freeze and to give as gifts.

Here are a few pictures of my freezer baking session:

My mouth is watering for some of that banana bread. I'm off to check out the site to copy the recipe.

Looks yummy! Also looks as if you won't have to cook/bake the entire winter!!!

Looks like we need to return and have a taste or two from your freezer! Good job, Debbie.

Oh, Debbie, it all looks so yummy. I remember my best friend's mother used to make brownies with frosting and freeze them individually in aluminum foil. We used to 'sneak' them from the freezer when we though we wouldn't get caught. I know her mom knew we were eating them.... LOL
