Carrot Oatmeal Muffin Recipe

Carrot Oatmeal Muffin Recipe

Carrot Oatmeal muffins

Looking for a new AMAZING muffin recipe?  One that freezes well and can be thawed for a quick family breakfast on the way out the door?

These carrot oatmeal muffins have quickly become a favorite in our house.  Like most people we are often rushing out the door in the mornings and that makes it tough to get some kind of breakfast into everyone.  I am the guiltiest about just having a couple cups of coffee on the way out the door.

These carrot oatmeal muffins work like a charm to make a batch or two and freeze them.  I love having my vacuum sealer on hand after whipping up a few batches of these muffins and then they can be stored in the freezer long term. When we are going to have a busy week I can pop a bag in the fridge on Sunday night and served up with a banana we are good to go on those busy mornings.

With summer on it’s way this seems like the perfect time to utilize my freezer stash.  I have gotten extremely useful to Coulter eating breakfast at school and not sure that I will be able to get into the habit of breakfast meals again.    Thanks heavens for a freezer stocked to the max with items like these carrot oatmeal muffins, freezer biscuit sandwiches and freezer breakfast burritos.

Do your children eat breakfast at school?  Do you make a hot breakfast every morning for them?  What is your favorite type of muffin?  Do you freeze muffins often to have them in the freezer?

    Hi Brandi, the muffins sound delicious. I make muffins (and cookies) every week and I’m always looking to try new recipes. I will definitely try your recipe, a little bit healthier with the oats and I love adding the carrots, the kids don’t realize they are eating veggies. I’ve pinned and shared.

      I freeze any type of muffin I can. They make for a quick breakfast in the morning (I try to remember to thaw the night before). I can bake them in batches when I have a lazy day.
