If there’s one thing we know for sure at Te Atatu Toasted, it’s that having a healthy breakfast is the best way to set yourself up for a day of eating well.
But mornings can be a rush – whether you are trying to get out the door to work, pack the kids off to school or just fit in some exercise at the start of the day, it can be hard to make time to make breakfast.
That’s why a breakfast in a jar is a great option. These yummy, layered concoctions can be made the night before and left in the fridge. Then all you have to do is grab it and go. Te Atatu Toasted founder Clare Robinson is a big fan – she often takes breakfast in a jar to the weekend markets, sets up her stall, then enjoys her morning meal on the go.
We have included some of our favourite breakfast-in-a-jar recipes below but once you get the hang of it, you can create your own combinations. Feel free to use any Te Atatu Toasted mueslis in these recipes.
For a low-sugar option, try this layered bircher recipe – it uses low sugar muesli, unsweetened yoghurt and berries so it contains less than four per cent sugar (including lactose).
This simple but tasty breakfast in a jar combines blueberries (you can use fresh or frozen) with yoghurt and Te Atatu Toasted Healthy Blend Muesli – get the recipe here.
If you are looking for a way to get more vegetables into your diet, check out this recipe for a breakfast in a jar that incorporates carrot and apple with our Original Blend Muesli.
Start your day with a tropical flavour with this Healthy Blend Pina Colada breakfast in a jar – it combines pineapple juice, bananas and yoghurt (use a coconut yoghurt to double down on the tropical theme and create a dairy-free breakfast).
This low-sugar layered option uses Basil Seeds for an unusual twist, if you cannot find these swap them out for chia seeds – the great thing about layered breakfasts is that every spoonful tastes a little bit different.
