3 Steps to Quick & Easy Mason Jar Breakfasts

Mason jars take the hassle out of breakfast—make something ahead of time, grab it, and go. And, they’re super cute! We’ve created a simple template for you to follow when putting together your own amazing breakfast creations. Keeping it simple (and a little sweet) is the name of the game here. Start with protein-rich dairy or fiber-filled grains as a base, add fruit, and top with a few nuts. Voila—a healthy and filling breakfast!

Fill your jar from the bottom up, and be sure anything you cook has cooled before assembling.
