We previously showed you how easy and convenient it is to make salad and also noodles in a jar, so here is a delicious jarred oats breakfast. This no-cook, grab-and-go first meal of the day is packed with protein, calcium and fiber and it's also low in fat and sugar, making a healthy and filling start of the day. You just need to remember to activate the seeds and nuts in water the night before, so the next morning, just add the oats and some sweetness in the form of sugar, syrup or dried fruits. Then add some hot water and give it a good shake. Perfect for play around with different flavor combos, for an easy grab-and-go breakfast to make ahead, to take to work, to school or to munch on the way straight out of the jar with a spoon.
1. Gather the ingredients
- 1 mason jar with lid
- 1/2 mason jar of oats
- a handful of mixed nuts
- 3 dried plums
- a tsp of brown sugar
2. Gather some nuts
Pick the nuts mix you desire or have at hand. We used equal parts of chia, sesame and sunflower seeds as well as cashew and walnuts.
3. Activate the seeds the night before
Activate the seeds the night before by placing them at the bottom of the jar with just enough water to cover them. Leave them in the fridge overnight.
4. Add the oats the morning after
Take the jar out of the fridge in the morning and simply add the oats, until you reach 1/3 of the jar (the empty space will help with the mixing).
5. Add hot water
Add hot water until you just about cover the oats.
6. Add some sweetness
Add some sugar or syrup, and the dry fruits of your choice (we used dried plums).
7. Shake it
Put the lid on and give it a good shake.
8. Open up and enjoy
Stir some more using a spoon if you need to and munch away directly out of the jar. Enjoy!
