There are certain times when I tend to get into a routine and that routine creates a rut.

Well according  to my kids I am in a lunchbox rut and they are beyond tired of having sandwiches.

You can’t blame me, can you?  My older two girls make hazelnut sandwiches and pb&j sandwiches on the weekend and then we place them in the freezer. When the weekday morning comes along the kids grab one from the freezer for and then add fruit and .


Easy Peasy. My kind of lunch prep.

Today I decided to go on the hunt for a no compliant alternative. These beauties we perfect and all seven kiddos agree.

    • They are delicious. I will probably make them again this weekend as . This was intended for easy lunches. Planning on freezing a few to see how they do. If they freeze and thaw well, then we are really in business and I can batch bake them. 🙂

  1. These lemon blueberry pancakes sound and looks so delicious. I am for sure making these because they can be eaten even for a healthy snack and not just breakfast. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you, Rebecca. Very true. I made them to go in the kiddos lunch, to switch things up. They worked perfectly. They also are perfectly packaged as a grab and go snack. I hope you enjoy them. Thank you for stopping by. 🙂
