Food in Jars - Grab'n Go Breakfasts

Posted on 14 March 2018

If you are looking for a few new quick and healthy breakfast ideas you've come to the right place! We asked some of the women in the Mason Jar Merchant (a.k.a. MJM) circle to share their favorite grab'n go breakfast recipes and here are the ones that made the list...


Food in Jars - Grab-n Go Breakfasts


MJM Birdseed

Marie (our Chief Jar Enthusiast, a.k.a. founder and owner of MJM) calls her favourite grab'n go breakfast birdseed. She describes it as "like granola, but with fewer carbs and raw ingredients." The recipe (if you could call it that!) is super simple and its easy to prep a dozen or more jars, seal them, and keep them on hand for a quick meal or snack.

    • Fill a small jar (Marie prefers wide mouth half pints) with coconut flakes, dried fruit, chia, and lots of nuts and seeds.  Basically, whatever you've got in your pantry!
    • When you are ready to eat, grab a jar, add some milk or mylk and chow down.

Chia Pudding

Pudding for breakfast, you ask? YES! Easy to prep and full of nutrients like calcium, iron, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids, chia pudding is a great vegan-friendly, gluten-free breakfast choice. Vancouver blogger, Carla (you can find her at Feather & Mane), whips up a batch on the weekly and says its a great option for picky eaters like her children.

Her favourite tried and true recipe comes from Oh She Glows:

Carla recommends mixing in a scoop of yogurt and fresh or frozen berries. Her favourite combination is fresh strawberries and greek yogurt, and sometimes a little scoop of natural peanut butter!

Yogurt & Granola Parfaits

MJM social media manager Kim, and her 3 boys, swear by yogurt and granola parfaits as a quick breakfast or snack. With so many different kinds of yogurt and potential toppings, the possibilities are endless!

    • Fill 8 oz mason jar about half full with your choice of yogurt
    • Top with granola for a bit of crunch
    • Sprinkle a few chocolate chips or some fresh or frozen fruit on top to sweeten it up
    • Give it a little stir and enjoy

These are just three simple breakfast options that we love and its no coincidence that each of these recipes can be made, stored and served in a mason jar!

Here are a few other mason jar breakfasts that we are dying to try!

Overnight Steel Cut Oats from Bless this Mess
Make Ahead Omelet in a Jar from Bless this Mess 
Crustless Mini Quiches from Dear Chrissy - Just adapt the recipe and bake directly in an 8 oz mason jar instead of a muffin pan!
