Freezer Friendly Muffins

These banana chip muffins are perfect for breakfast or a snack, and can be easily frozen for later.  Even better is pulling them out of the freezer later on and having the work already done!  Super easy, kid-friendly, and freezer-friendly, I wanted to share this banana chip muffin recipe to make your life easier!

Egg Muffins for the Morning Win!

Busy Mornings

simple egg muffins for healthy morningsMornings as a mom are just busy; there is no getting around that!  But, we can plan in advance to make our mornings count.  Eating enough protein to feel full and fueled for the day is something I struggle with, so I started making these egg muffins. Maybe your breakfast routine is an area you also want to improve.


Simple Egg Muffins

These egg muffins are simple to make and can be made in advance.  I love to make up a batch of these, then put half in the fridge and half in the freezer.  In the morning,  I take out one or two egg muffins, microwave for about 30 seconds, and they are perfect!  They fill me up, give me the energy I need for my morning, and do not take any time to prepare.  My picky eaters do not like them, but my husband likes them and will eat if he takes the time.  They’re perfect for me, and as moms we have to remember to take care of our own bodies!

Try Your Favorite Combinations

What’s also great about these egg muffins is the recipe is pretty fool-proof (believe me, I know!).  If you like sausage instead of ham, great!  Or vary the cheese or veggies you put in them.  Try spinach and feta, or any other combination.  The secret is about 10 eggs per dozen muffins.  That is when you have a  space-filling ingredient like hash browns in them.  Also make sure you season them, just like you would scrambled eggs or omelets, so the muffins are not bland.  I like to make them with ham and cheese, but you can create your own combinations.

Best of luck starting the new year with a fresh perspective on healthy eating.  For other healthy recipes, see Healthy Kids Snacks and follow my Pinterest board.  To simplify even more, shop for ingredients online at walmart.com, and have items delivered or schedule a pickup.
