Mornings can be so busy, but you can still make sure you're getting a healthy breakfast by prepping these instant oatmeal jars! The flavor combinations are endless, and kids enjoy putting together their own jars for the week. 

Use all freeze dried fruit (no sugar added). It’s crunchy and sweet, and it's shelf stable which makes it super convenient!

Flavor combo ideas:

  • Apples & Cinnamon: 1/4 cup freeze dried apples, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, pinch of granulated stevia, or granulated sweetener of choice
  • Raspberries & dark chocolate or cacao nibs: 1/4 cup freeze dried raspberries & 2 Tbsp dark chocolate chips or nibs
  • Monkey mix: 1/4 cup freeze dried banana chips, 1 Tbsp coconut flakes, 1 Tbsp dark chocolate chips or nibs
  • Triple berry: 1/4 cup freeze dried berry mix & a pinch of granulated stevia, or granulated sweetener of choice
  • Blueberries & cream: 1/4 cup freeze dried blueberries, a pinch of powdered vanilla (huge health benefits in powdered compared to liquid extract), & a pinch of granulated stevia or granulated sweetener of choice
  • Peaches & cream: 1/4 cup freeze dried peaches, pinch of powdered vanilla (huge health benefits in powdered compared to liquid extract), & a pinch of granulated stevia, or granulated sweetener of choice
  • Strawberry & banana: 2 Tbsp freeze dried strawberries, 2 Tbsp freeze dried banana & a pinch of granulated stevia, or granulated sweetener of choice
  • Try adding your favorite chopped nuts, or a 1/2 scoop of protein powder to any of these varieties
