During week three of my recent large family pantry and freezer challenge, I did some big-batch cooking and did 4 dozen oatmeal blueberry muffins!
Some oatmeal muffin ingredients I was out of such as All-Spice or Cinnamon. For the most part, I had everything needed to do some big-batch cooking of oatmeal blueberry muffins. I had lots of bulk oatmeal in the pantry and a full bag of frozen blueberries in the freezer. We were also out of sugar and additionally, we didn’t have Stevia (I like to bake with Stevia when possible). Because of this, I used honey since I actually had an unopened bottle in the pantry – yay!
The kids love batch cooking and helping me make up tons of various muffins, many freezer fruit breads, bulk cooking pizza dough, or whatever strikes our cooking inspiration! Batch cooking allows me to cook up a bunch of whatever item using some for now and freezing or storing the rest for later meals.
On our batch cooking day for all these oatmeal blueberry muffins, Daniel and Amelia both had
