I have a new (school) year resolution – that is to bake more items for school lunches – thereby making mornings easier, kids eat healthier and get more of a variety of yummy, homemade food in their lunchboxes.

This is what I am baking and making this week:

Cheese and Bacon scrolls

Ham & Zucchini Pikelets

Zucchini, Corn and Cheddar loaf

Banana and Raspberry bread

Milo and Coconut cookies

Spinach, Corn and Feta muffins

Apple and Pear Muffins

Here are some other websites I’ve come across with a load of other ideas.

If you have any of your own I’d love to hear about them!


And even more on Pinterest!
