When I started spending way too much money each week on getting breakfast on the run, I decided I should start pre-planning and come up with a solution so that I have something ready to grab and run out the door with before work/uni. A friend and I have started recycling our jars and making little breakfast jars. First off, we don’t need to delve into the fact that it’s a great way to recycle things that get thrown out so easily. I always seem to end up with so many empty jars building up in the kitchen, which triggered the idea.

The ones pictured are yoghurt based, some with organic bio-dynamic plain yoghurt, and some with CO-YO (coconut yoghurt). It really depends on what your personal preferences are. I put together a toasted muesli mix which I put through the oven.
The ingredients for that were very simple, including:
– Oats
– Chopped up raw almonds
– Rice Puffs
-Sunflower Seeds
-Dried Coconut
Warm up some honey and mix with the dry ingredients until it is completely coating the mix. Spread evenly and thinly on a baking tray with baking paper. Oven should be set to around 180 degrees (c) and will only need to be in there for around 20-30 minutes.

It’s great if you can your hands on some beautiful fruits that are in season, which will work out cheaper for you and make your jar taste better. Dried fruits are a great addition as well, goji berries a personal favourite of mine. You can be artistic and layer all your different ingredients, which will make it look nice as well as taste good.

I love making chia pudding ones as well – a really nutritious and filling breakfast meal to start your day. A lot of people have a pre-conceived idea that chia pudding is difficult to make, when actually it is extremely simple. Here is a fantastic recipe to guide you through: VANILLA CHIA PUDDING

Enjoy! xx
