Im wanting to try a few easy recipes to send for school lunch box fillers.

Things that freeze well would be handy but not essential.

Also, one of my sons does not like milk or dark chocolate. will only eat white chocolate so unfortunately no chocolate baking things will ever be tested  :-(

NZ Edmonds cookbook: oaty apple loaf. I make this as muffins and freeze.

Banana bread and banana muffins are a winner in this house,

as well as blueberry muffins and apple and cinnamon muffins.

basically just google for fruit filled muffins.

if you don't want ant fruit in them, you could try things like carrot muffins (without the cream cheese on top)

you could also make blondies, which are the white chocolate version of brownies.

mini quiches using mini muffin baking trays, full with a vege and cheese?

My family loves this raspberry and white chocolate muffins. I know the recipe says strawberry but we prefer it as raspberries.

One of my son’s loves this hummingbird cupcake. It smells so tropical when baking.

Banana cake

Fruity Oat Slice

These are on regular rotation at our house. They all freeze well or maybe my kids aren’t fussy lol

There are heaps of other recipes on those sites as well. I also like Bill Granger’s cookie recipes and his lemon slice and his butterfly cake recipe is a good and ridiculously easy vanilla cupcake.

Google "blondie" recipes. They're essentially while chocolate "blond" brownies. My DS love white chocolate & raspberry, and white choc & cranberry blondies

These are super popular in my house.

I also just use a basic muffin mix & add in things like dried diced apricots, sultanas or chocolate chips. I'm going to make up banana muffins tomorrow, as my bunch of bananas I bought green have turned overripe overnight.

I think theres some previous threads on this with good suggestions. my kids like pumpkin scones and scrolls (pizza / spinach etc) which are really easy to make with pastry just put in filling, roll up and bake for 10-15 mins.

Oat bars https://www.taste.co...ec-ea0df3ebbc4c
with varying types of dried fruit, coconut etc also go down well
