One-Hour Freezer Cooking: Skinny Chocolate, Energy Bites, and Whole Wheat Pancakes

One-Hour Freezer Cooking

I’m f-i-n-a-l-l-y getting around to telling you about my very successful one-hour freezer cooking session that I did recently.

So this Peppermint Skinny Chocolate was a winner. I was kind of hesitant about how it would turn out, but I followed the recipe exactly — including the tips the blog suggested — and it was delicious. In fact, it was so good that I was tempted to literally lick the bowl out. Instead, I scraped it clean (see above).

I cut it in small pieces and stored it in the freezer and it’s the perfect treat on a hot day!

Next up, I made a batch of Homemade Energy Bites. These are the snack of choice for my kids this summer. And I love it that they are packed with pretty healthy ingredients.

One batch lasts the three kids about a week. But I can’t always keep up with the demand, so Kathrynne asked me if she could learn how to make them, too. See pictures of how her batch turned out here. :)

And while I was busy making Skinny Chocolate and Energy Bites, the guys were whipping up a batch of Whole-Wheat Pancakes.

I love baking and cooking together in the kitchen as a family. And now that we’ve overhauled our lifestyle with the move to TN, it’s becoming a fairly regular occurrence around here — which is so much fun!

One Hour Freezer Cooking: Cowboy Beans, Spaghetti, & Energy Bites

One-Hour Freezer Cooking

Here’s a little peek into my recent One-Hour Freezer Cooking session

I browned a massive pan of ground beef and onions. And kind of chose a pan that was too small. Whoops!

While the ground beef was browning, I put everything in the crockpot for the Slow Cooker Cowboy Beans. These were so simple and easy to make!

And the ground beef was finally done. Yikes! I made a MESS on the stove!

I had planned to make Million Dollar Spaghetti, but I was running short on time and I didn’t want to turn on the oven because the house was already so hot, so I decided to just boil the noodles, add a jar of pasta sauce to some of the ground beef, and make spaghetti for dinner.

Er, maybe I was just lazy? Well, I’m going with the fact that the house was too hot to turn on the oven. Yup, that’s my story. :)

While everyone was getting dinner on their plates and getting situated at the table (which always seems to take a LONG time!), I dumped everything in a bowl for the Homemade Energy Bites.

And then I quickly rolled these in balls and stuck them in the freezer. Well, after we did a little taste-testing. ;)
