#freezerlovefriday breakfast series

Muffins! Who doesn't love muffins? I find they are the perfect grab n' go snack to give to Luke (and myself)! The type of muffins you can make are endless! They also freeze extremely well. 

I chose the classic blueberry muffin for our second breakfast #freezerlovefriday post! I LOVE blueberries and I love that you can get them year round for relatively cheap, hello frozen aisle section. I picked up a bag of frozen, organic blueberries for $0.99 at the Dollar Store, the other day. They have an amazing frozen food section, and so much of it is organic! This is an easy and yummy recipe that is sure to please the little and big stomachs in your house. 

1 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar 
¼ cup brown sugar 
2 eggs, room temperature
1 cup milk, room temperature
1 t vanilla 
1/2 t salt
1 t baking powder
3 cups flour (white or wheat flour, as always I used wheat in the muffins pictured)
2 cups blueberries (frozen or fresh) 

Preheat oven to 400°
Add butter and sugars into an electric mixer, mix until well incorporated

Add vanilla and eggs, mix well 

Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a seperate bowl, mix well 

Slowly add in flour and milk to the mixer and mix all ingredients until just incorporated, careful not to over beat. 

Fold in blueberries 

Line muffin pan with liners, drop in batter to just below the top of the foil. These will not rise much, so depending on how large you want them, is how you would fill them. 

This is a super fun activity to get the kids involved!

Bake 23-26 minutes, checking to see no batter comes out when inserting a toothpick. Place on wire rack to cool. 


Freezing instructions:

Similar to the pancakes you will want to pre-freeze these. Wait until completely cooled, place on cookie sheet and leave them in freezer for at least 6 hours. Once frozen, add them to individual bags or to one large freezer bag. 

Place in microwave for 45 seconds or until completely heard through.
Place in oven or toaster at 350 for 10-12 minutes. 

With all of these #freezerlovefriday recipes, my freezer can get a bit crowded! I am your typical Type A who loves an organized freezer. There are plastic bins that are the perfect size for ziplock baggies, so I have a bunch lined up in my freezer. Hope this helps to keep you organized!

Happy freezing,
