Freezer Friendly Blueberry Banana Muffins

Disclosure: Contains affiliate link. See full disclosure here.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  That’s what “they” say.  I can’t tell you if “they” are right or not.  But I can tell you that breakfast can be one of the most overlooked meals.  It’s easy to fall in a rut – cereal one day, then oatmeal the next day.  Followed by cereal, then oatmeal.  Then cereal and oatmeal.  That’s how it could go.

But it doesn’t need to be that way – especially because there are lots of great breakfast recipes out there.  And not just out there, but on here too.  Things like:

Overnight Monkey Bread
Overnight French Toast Casserole
Breakfast Popsicles
Banana Cake Mix Muffins
Freezer Ready French Toast Sticks
Pancake Bites
Sausage Breakfast Casserole
Freezer Ready Breakfast Burritos

blueberrybananamuffins1

And now these blueberry banana muffins.  I love that they are easy to make, but even more than that: they are easy to eat on the go.  And even better than being easy to make AND easy to eat on the go, they freeze wonderfully.  Making them ideal for making a big batch, freezing and using as needed.  I love that!  I really like using silicone muffin liners because the muffins pop out so easily.

And my kids love them too:

Blueberry Banana Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk (if you don’t have buttermilk, don’t sweat it – just measure ¼ cup of milk, then add a drop or two of lemon juice and let it sit for a few minutes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1.5 cup blueberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare your muffin tins. I swear by using silicone muffin liners.  I also use Pam with Flour so that you don’t need muffin liners at all.
  3. Beat the butter & sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy – about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Beat in eggs, buttermilk and vanilla.
  5. Beat in bananas.
  6. Gradually add in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt at low speed.
  7. Add blueberries and gently stir.
  8. Spoon the batter into your muffin tins.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes for mini muffins or 20-25 minutes for regular sized muffins.

May 2016 Monthly Menu Plan!

School’s almost out!!!  Can you believe it?  This is the last month of school for most of the students.  That clearly starts ushering in summer!  I personally am dreaming of the produce stands – watermelon, sweet corn and home-grown tomatoes.  Bring it on!!!  I’m ready!

Speaking of being ready, did you follow last month’s menu plan?  Anyone use the breakfast & lunch options?  I’m curious if that’s valuable to people.  Right now, I’m a working mom and my kids eat at daycare, but starting this summer, I’ll be transitioning to a stay-at-home mom and just having a plan on paper for more than just dinner makes my mind rest a little easier!

Just like last month, I really only did 2 weeks of breakfasts and just rotated through them.  Lunches are on a 3 week rotation.  My boys don’t mind repetition, but that still provides a little variety.

The Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Menu:

May2016All

The Dinner Only Menu:

May2016Dinners

What if I don’t cook every night?
Awesome!  I don’t either – we often have leftovers 2-3 night/week.  Just take this basic plan, cut out some meals and make leftovers part of your plan!

What if I don’t want a particular meal on a specific night?
Awesome!  Just take this basic plan and swap meals around.

What if I want to see the Excel version?
Awesome!  You can download the Dinner-Only version here or the Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner version here.

What if I don’t eat beef?  Or chicken?  Or pork?
Awesome!  Just take this basic plan, remove the foods you won’t eat and put in foods you will eat.

What if I don’t know how to make that meal?
Awesome!  Included are the links for the recipe that I usually use.

What if we always have pizza on Friday nights?
Awesome!  (Can I come over?)  Just remove my Friday meals and put in pizza.

What if I don’t like your recipe?
Awesome!  Use whichever recipe you normally use and just use this basic plan as a suggestion.

What if I have my own monthly menu plan?
Awesome!  Care to share it?  Share it down below in the comments so that we all can see it and be inspired!

What’s cool about this menu plan?
Breakfast & lunch are simple and repetitive while still providing variety.  For dinners, I try to have a lot more variety each week – some beef, some chicken, and some pastas.  That way you won’t get too bored.  There are also plenty of ways to save time when using this menu plan.   Examples:  When prepping chicken at the beginning of the month, make enough for the other recipes and freeze it for future use.  When making ground beef, brown 2-3 times the normal amount and freeze that. Check out these easy crockpot instructions for bulk cooking chicken and bulk cooking ground beef. It makes it super quick to pull meals together!

Recipes in this menu plan:
Breakfast Recipes:
Breakfast Popsicles
Sausage Breakfast Casserole
Sausage Bagel Sandwiches
English Muffins (top with butter, cream cheese, peanut butter or jelly)
Breakfast Burritos

Subscription boxes are so fun and exciting. I love getting little surprises in the mail with goodies from my favorite boxes. Did you know there are several subscription boxes just for kids? These boxes help beat the summer boredom and make great gifts that keep giving every month.

subscription boxes for kids
How do subscription boxes work? Typically you pick the length of the plan, monthly, every 3 months, 6 months or yearly and a new box with a fun theme arrives every month. The longer subscriptions will save you a few dollars and the subscription boxes usually auto-renew, so you don’t have to worry about remembering to order every month. Enjoy them and cancel anytime. My kids have had several subscription boxes over the years and always look forward to the goodies in each box.

Here is a list of 10+ subscription boxes designed just for kids!

1. Green Kid Crafts – Ages 3-10, $17.95-$19.95/month
This monthly box contains 5-8 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture and Math) projects. You will find science experiments, craft ideas and more in every box. Great way to encourage learning!

2. Kiwi Crate – Ages 3-16 (pick different age levels), $16.95-$19.95/month
This is another STEAM subscription box full of creative and educational projects for your kids every month.
