25 Freezer Friendly Lunch Box Ideas

Six more sleeps until school goes back for a new school year for us! And for the first time ever I am going to have two in school (albeit one part time) and two lunch boxes to pack. I am hoping to be extra organised so that our mornings continue to run smoothly and so I have been on the scout for recipes that are simple to bake and freeze ahead of time. Here are 25 that I think are worth a look.

Freezer Tips: For best results when freezing baked goods, allow the food to cool completely before freezing in individual portions. I like to freeze things on a baking tray/sheet, spread out so that the items aren’t touching, and then once frozen transfer the items into a freezer safe bag or container.

Muffins – Savoury

Freezer Tips: Wrap individual muffins or un-iced cupcakes in plastic cling wrap and then double bag the batch in freezer safe zip cloze bags (removing all of the air from the bag before sealing) to prevent freezer burn.
