Breakfast in a Jar

Breakfast in a Jar

If you’ve been anywhere near the internet, you’ll know that food served in a jar is very much a ‘thing’ now.  This breakfast option is more than fashionable, though; it’s a very practical way of grabbing breakfast on the go for those early-start mornings. All it takes is a little prep work the day before.

You don’t have to use an ultra fashionable and oh-so-instagramable mason jar if you don’t want to – this should work in any tall, wide necked portion sized container that you can put a lid on.

For each portion, mix together 1/3 cup oats with 150g thick youghurt in a flavour of your choice (you can add a splash of milk if the mixture seems a little thick).

Put half the youghurt oat mixture in the jar and then add a layer of chopped fruit of your choice, if you have a camp freezer you can use frozen fruit too. Layer in the second half of the yoghurt oat mixture and top with more fruit.

Put the lid on your container and chill overnight (these pots will keep for up to 3 days in a fridge). All you need to do when it’s time to eat is open the lid and grab a spoon – easy when you’re busy and it’s a healthy option too.
