Freezer Cooking: Baking Healthier Snacks for My Family
If you follow me on Facebook then you know I have been doing some baking for the freezer this past week. I got some great deals on Free Range, Vegetarian Fed, Anti-biotic and Hormone free eggs as wells has mark downs on several bags of dried fruits with no added anything.
So I decided I would bake up some healthier versions of snacks for the freezer. I don’t know if you have noticed but I rarely buy any prepackaged snacks any more. Yes they make organic cookies and muffins but have you ever looked at the prices? They are outrageous, especially when I know that a package will be gone so fast. So lately our snacks have consisted of yogurt, cheese, sometimes crackers and then on Fridays I usually buy or make some kind of dessert.
With the girls home for the summer though I need some snacks! Snacks that are made with ingredients I am comfortable feeding my family. So, the great deals I got were the incentive I needed to get started.
So far I have baked:
Not everything made it into the freezer. My family had to taste test nearly everything. I will be posting recipes over the next few days. I will link to the original recipes and post the changes I made.
I am hoping to do a lot of freezer cooking this summer, I would like to get my freezer full of snacks, as well as meals or partially prepped meals.
Do you freezer cook? If so do you have a favorite recipe that always turns out great from the freezer? If so I would love to hear about it. Leave a comment or send me an email.
