When in search of the best frozen meals, I look for options that are yummy–obviously, and nutritious enough that I can justify having dessert–because who doesn’t love dessert?! Thanks to Marie Callender’s Delights, I’ve found a whole bunch of options that fit that criterion. These are also saving me a ton of time, money, and stress–especially with the holiday craze in full swing.

What you see pictured here is Marie Callender’s Delights Balsamic Glazed Chicken with Harvest Vegetables with Banana Nut Loaf Cake for dessert. Ready in under 10 minutes, this meal is tasty and full of 21 grams of lean protein. An excellent first round. But let’s talk about round two of this convenient feast…

Banana Nut Loaf Cake

So, yeah, I have a degree in nutrition science and know all about the importance of eating clean and getting fresh fruit and veggies. BUT, I’m still human and love indulging in sweet desserts. It is, after all, all about balance.

These frozen loaf cakes are ready in 35 minutes in the oven or can be thawed in advance and warmed in the microwave. We opted for the oven method and were gifted with the whole house filling with the smell of banana bread. Even my mom’s nose had her wandering over wondering what treat was producing such a wonderful scent.

The aroma wasn’t lying. This quick dessert delivered delicious results. The kids devoured it the moment I was through photographing it. With the fluffy addition of a dollop of Reddi-wip Extra Creamy Dairy Whipped Topping, these loaf cakes are excellent for anything from afternoon tea to the Thanksgiving dessert table.

Saving Time

Made with real ingredients like bananas, crunchy English walnuts, butter, and a brown sugar streusel, it’s like you made this loaf cake from scratch. It tastes homemade and requires none of the time-consuming efforts. This is a priceless stress-reliever this time of year. Especially as a single mom and entrepreneur.

Saving Money

Rather than buy all the ingredients and spending all the preparation time in the kitchen, I can snag this at Walmart and keep working. Plus, here is a coupon to save even more dough!

Those look delicious! I love frozen meals because they are quick and easy but still taste great. I'll keep an eye out for those in stores. Yum!

Now that looks like a heavenly meal! I love the veggies, but knowing I get to have some yummy banana nut loaf after dinner would make me so happy.

Those vegetables sure look delicious. Not lunch yet but you are making me crave roasted veggies.. Actually I think I'll run to Walmart and grab this for lunch since I have a sick teenager home today.
