50 Freezer-Friendly Breakfasts in 75 Minutes

50 Freezer-Friendly Breakfasts in 75 Minutes

My oldest daughter is going to first grade this year, so I decided to stock our freezer with a bunch of easy and healthy breakfasts.  I was able to make 50 servings in only 75 minutes.  Yay!

Here’s what I made:

  1. Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits from Thirty Handmade Days (8 servings)
  2. Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites from Pinch of Yum (7 servings)
  3. Smoothie Packs from Live Simply (5 servings)
  4. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins (24 servings)
  5. Baked Oatmeal from Money Saving Mom (6 servings)

I’m including links to the original recipes above, but my modifications and step-by-step instructions are typed up in this free pdf:

What’s so great about these recipes?

  • I made all five recipes in 75 minutes. (That works out to 90 seconds per serving!)
  • I only spent $27.87 on groceries. (56¢ per serving)
  • Our mornings will be less stressful because we have so many homemade breakfasts on-hand.

These are all breakfasts that I’ve made and frozen before so I know that they’re delish.  We’ve also eaten about half of them in the time it took me to write up this post.  SO GOOD.

50 Freezer-Friendly Breakfasts in 75 Minutes

I’ve been horrible about eating breakfast lately, so I know these meals are going to help us so much.  Adios donuts, poptarts, and sugar cereals.  I’m excited to make a change.  Not only will these be great for me first thing in the morning, but they’re healthier options for my husband and kids.

I developed an egg sensitivity this year, so I didn’t make any savory meals, but if you’re an egg-person here are some of my favorite freezer meals that I’ve made in the past:

    Just FYI, I’ve never made those specific energy bites before, but for other energy bites recipes that I have made I press the whole mixture into an appropriately sized pan (generally 8×8 for a single recipe, 9×13 for double and an 11xsomething cookie sheet with sides for triple the recipe) lined with wax paper or parchment paper. Put a sheet of wax paper on top and really smash it down firmly, then refrigerate. Then I lift the whole thing out of the pan and cut it into bite sized squares. It just takes way too long for me to roll the bites into balls versus how quickly our family goes through them…I almost always triple the recipe. Also, I have made the baked oatmeal many, many times and it is fabulous. You can also bake it immediately then cut it into bars and freeze them individually wrapped to be reheated in the microwave if you don’t have time (or patience-ha!) to wait for it to bake the morning you want it.

  • Pauline Kennedy says:

    Have you posted an article about your egg sensitivity? My husband can no longer eat eggs. If he does, he has an immediate energy drain, and extreme abdominal cramping. Usually, 2 Benadryl knock out the pain , and him. What are your symptoms? Thanks!

    • Kelly says:

      No, I haven’t posted anything. I can eat eggs cooked in baked goods, but not alone (like scrambled eggs or omelets). They make me feel very sick. I thought I had the flu for a few days before I figured out the cause.

  • Beth says:

    Another idea on the baked oatmeal. I’ve been baking it in muffin cups (using the silicone ones) and then letting them cook, popping them out of the muffin cups and freezing. So we have individual portions frozen just like muffins. Depending on whose eating them, I can pull 1 or 2 out at a time and pop them in the microwave for a minute or so to heat it up. I’ve been making different flavors to keep it different and its turned 2 non oatmeal eaters into oatmeal eaters! 🙂

  • Misty says:

    Thank you so much for this list! My 3 year old had a pretty scary allergic reaction to scrambled eggs just after her 1st birthday. She can now eat baked in eggs, and her doctor thinks she will outgrow her allergy by the time she’s 6 or 7, but in the meantime, most make ahead breakfast lists don’t work for us. I’m really excited to try these recipes though!

  • Sarah says:

    Does the granola in the parfaits hold up well in the freezer? Do you take them out the night before to thaw?
    Thanks so much, I love your blog–such a life changer!

    • Kelly says:

      Thanks, Sarah! The granola is much better in the freezer than fridge. Mine got a little bit soft, but I still liked it. I thawed them overnight in the refrigerator.

  • JAN ROWE says:

    I am LOVING your recipes! You have saved my hectic life!!

  • Pat Whitsell says:

    I’m going to make the freezer-friendly fruit and yogurt parfaits and have a question about the blueberries. Fresh blueberries and freezing always confuses me LOL. I’ve always read one shouldn’t wash berries prior to freezing because they will become mushy. Then I’m left wondering just when to wash them. In this recipe, how did you handle that? Thanks.

    • Kelly says:

      I would wash before freezing. I used frozen blueberries, but I didn’t like their texture thawed (and they made the granola more mushy), so I would use fresh instead.
