5 EASY Freezable Lunchbox Recipes

I am not great at creating lunchbox recipes. A common theme in my house is to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible. While I have come a long way, I don’t have any kitchen bragging rights.

Over the last couple of years, I have found recipes that are easy, reliable, and freeze well to simplify my daily lunchbox prep. I am sharing this with you in hopes that you find one that works well for your household.

Empanadas – Predominantly Paleo

This was a huge find for me. At any given time, I have a dozen or so frozen with a variety of fillings based on my child’s current likes. The filling possibilities are endless and it really allows you to personalize to your child’s palate.


Rosemary Almond Flour Biscuits – Thrive Market

I first discovered these when I received a holiday cookbook with an order I placed. These biscuits are incredibly easy to make and are a huge hit with the whole family. They can also be used as sandwich bread or buns to a grass fed burger


Not a Grain Bars – Against All Grain

These were a big hit when my son started eating solid foods because they are easy to chew. I fill with sugar free preserves or all natural apple butter and some unflavored grass fed whey for a clean snack when his classmates get cereal bars.


Chocolate Banana Zucchini Muffins – Merit and Fork

These easy muffins are delicious. I skipped the  chocolate and added some unflavored grass fed whey protein powder for a macronutrient rich breakfast alternative. 


 Coconut Flour Pancakes – Civilized Caveman**

**Featured recipe from Josh Weismann’s book ‘The Slim Palate Cookbook’

I have to make these pancakes when my husband isn’t around because he enjoys them so much. These would probably also be great as waffles.
