Freezer Oatmeal cups
With two months to go, it’s time to start prepping #freezermeals for when baby arrives! 👶🏻 I won’t lie, I thinks we end up eating half the stash before baby is even born 😆 but it’s always worth the prep! I know most people think of dinner for freezer meals but breakfast is an important one in our house too. I can’t start my day without it and my kids are always ravenous in the morning!
PB&J Frozen Oatmeal Use whatever oats you like and make enough for 6 servings according to package directions 2 Tbs ground flaxseed 2 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 cup maple syrup OR 1 whole banana, mashed to sweeten 2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/4 cup @crazyrichardspb 🥜 peanut butter Jam ( we used @smuckersbrandstrawberry sweetened with honey ) to dollop on top Fresh berries to top 🍓( optional ) Make oatmeal according to package directions. Let cool slightly. Scoop oatmeal into silicone baking cups ( or a lightly greased muffin tin ) almost to the top. I use an ice cream scoop to make it easier! Place a dollop if Jam on top of each oatmeal cup and sprinkle with berries. Place into the freezer and freeze until hard. Pop the oatmeal out of the cups and place into a freezer bag.
When reheating, I use 2 cups per adult serving and 1 for my kids. Add a splash of milk and microwave until warm. It makes about 20 cups so double it if you’re wanting to have plenty on hand!
I’ll be using the hashtag #freezerreadyfridayif you want to follow along and see all of the things I make! And if you make any, use it so I can see your yummy creations!
