Oatmeal in a jar

You probably know you should eat breakfast, but how many times have you skipped? No matter if you’re rushing to start work inside our out side your home, healthy meal planning can be challenging. Here’s a quick way to make breakfast the night before or the morning of without any cooking. Plus it’s raw! Put all the ingredients in a jar, shake, and place it in the fridge overnight.  I love using my mason jars for this.

  • 1/2 cup of raw old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup cashew or almond meal
  • 1/8 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/8 cup of sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • 1 1/2  cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp of raw honey
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1/3 cup of fresh or frozen fruit

You can substitute ingredients, as you like. Sometimes I’ll switch it up and use toasted coconut almond milk, chia seeds, agave,  and different kinds of nuts. You can also mix in some quinoa, but you’ll want to make it ahead the night before to allow the liquid to absorb.

I’ll omit using any added sweetener if the fruit is ripe enough. If you’d like more crunch, add in 1/4 cup of grapenuts or shredded wheat right before you enjoy your oatmeal so it doesn’t get soggy. This no fuss breakfast will leave you full on the good stuff and jumpstart your day, the plant-based way.
