Freezer Cooking in an Hour: Peanut Butter Granola Bars, Cinnamon Swirl Bread, and Ham & Cheese Pockets

Freezer Cooking in an Hour

I had another really successful Freezer Cooking in an Hour session earlier this week!

Remember the Crockpot Granola that I wasn’t thrilled with? Well, I used it in place of the dry ingredients in the No Bake Peanut Butter Granola Bar recipe (plus, I added in some chocolate chips — are you surprised?!)

The result? Really amazingly delicious granola bars!

It’s been awhile since I’ve made a batch of Cinnamon Swirl Bread.

After the loaf came out of the oven, I wondered why I’d waited so long to make this again. Because it is SO good!

And these Ham & Cheese Pockets are another recipe I hadn’t made for awhile.

Kaitlynn helped me roll out the dough and stuff them, so the pan of pockets had some character, but they tasted delicious, as always.

Kaitlynn and I did some freezer cooking earlier this week.

I made a triple batch of Taco Meat and stuck some chicken in the oven to bake for some baked chicken.

In fact, the pan never made it to the freezer. :)

I was really excited to try the Crockpot Granola… especially because I always love trying new ideas.

While the Crockpot Granola was baking, I mixed up the Banana Bars with Brown Butter Frosting.

These bars totally lived up what other people had told me about them — they are fabulous! And the icing is especially amazing!

I wasn’t as thrilled with how the granola turned out. I think I’ll stick with my favorite Lazy Granola recipe. It’s so simple and always turns out well.

I also made a bunch of Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches for the freezer. These are so handy to have in the freezer!

It’s Day 15 of the 21 Days to a Simple Christmas Challenge!

Today, I did some Christmas Freezer Cooking. I was planning to make three different recipes, but we spent all afternoon at the ice-skating rink, so we ended up only having enough time to make two recipes while we were making dinner tonight.
