How can you provide nutritious meals and snacks when life makes cooking difficult? The secret is to be prepared. Using convenience ingredients and making meals your own is one way to serve your family’s tastes without being a slave to the kitchen. Bonus points if the recipe freezes well, allowing you to do some batch cooking, saving both time and money.
The following recipe is a good one to have on hand. It is quick, convenient, and can take advantage of leftovers. The kids can simply pull these muffins out of the freezer and warm them for a a no-fuss after-school snack or breakfast.
They are also good as a winter-time staple, since these muffins are very filling. Try serving them with soup or baked beans. Of course, they can also be used as a back up source of emergency food, since the muffins can be defrosted and eaten warm or cold, as needed.
For variety, you may also want to serve these muffins with honey butter. Combine softened butter with a little bit of honey. Leftover honey butter will keep well in the fridge for about a week.
