Mason Jar Breakfast Ideas

Let’s face it: Mason jars can do just about anything, including serving up your breakfast. The recipe possibilities are endless, but we’ve rounded up a few of the most insanely delicious options to keep you energized, inspired and full.

Apricot and honey Greek yogurt parfait

Apricots are loaded with nutrients, and Greek yogurt packs more protein than your go-to fruit-on-the-bottom buy. Add some honey and some cinnamon for a sweet and healthy start to your day. Try the recipe from Mason Jar Breakfast.

Cherry chia jam overnight oats

Banana bread in a jar

Banana bread isn’t exactly what you think of when you consider a healthy breakfast, but the smaller portions and lack of some fatty ingredients (like butter!) make it great for you — without sacrificing taste. Need we say more? This can-do recipe from Made From Pinterest is everything you’ve ever wanted in a breakfast.
