Weekday mornings can be pretty hectic; dragging yourself out of bed, getting ready for work, dogs to feed, kids and traffic- trying to fit in a nutritious breakfast can at times seem downright impossible!
Enter this little savior: The Breakfast Jam Jar.
A breakfast jam jar takes 5 minutes to prepare and is an easy way to start your day off with an abundance of nutrients, fibre and energy. By preparing the jar the night before the oats will be more easily digested and allow for better absorption. This recipe is my Harmonic Arts inspired version of a jam jar- the majority of these ingredients are available on our website or in store. You can be as creative and picky as you like with this – use your imagination!
Here are a few of the many nutrients and benefits packed into this particular breakfast jar:
Magnesium, Fibre, Manganese, Protein, Omega 3 and 6, Antioxidants, Iodine, Trace minerals and B Vitamins
3/4 Cup organic whole rolled oats
1/2 Cup milk or milk alternative (I used almond milk)
Cacao nibs (I ran out and used chocolate chips!)
Place oats in first and then add other ingredients as you please.
You can add bananas and/or fruit to the top.
Pour almond milk into the jam jar.
Place in fridge.
In the morning amidst the hectic hustle just grab and go!
It’s easy, tastes like a (guilt free) dessert and is incredibly filling. Enjoy!
