Gettin' my bake on - Banana choc-chip muffins & Cheesy puffs

This week's baking challenge comes to you because of little misses lunchbox.

I never thought putting together a lunchbox could be so darn difficult. I search pinterest for inspiration and ideas and have mainly found gourmet dishes that would no doubt fall out all over the ground or be thrown around the playground.

Banana choc-chip wholemeal muffins

Thanks to the lovely Bron at Maxabella Loves, this week little miss is going to school with some choc-chip banana wholemeal muffins.

And thanks Bron for the tips on freezing these and using during the week.

For a newbie lunchboxer all that can be confusing about what you can and can't freeze and how long it takes to defrost.

Cheesy Puffs

And I also made some savoury cheesy puffs.

You'll need...

1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 zucchini, grated
2 spring onions, finely chopped
2 cups grated cheese
1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour

Then you will need to do....
  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Whisk together the milk and egg. Add the paprika, zucchini, spring onions and cheese.
  3. Sift over the flour. Mix well (it will become a thick pastey consistency). 
  4. Dollop out tablespoon portions on to the baking tray.
  5. Bake 20 minutes until brown and cooked through.

What do you put in your kid's lunchbox?
Or do you have a go-to for your own lunch?
