Overnight Breakfast Pots

Are you looking to save time in the mornings? You can’t beat these Overnight Breakfast Pots. They are very similar to the Salad in a Jar concept. Put just the right amount of ingredients in a pot, pop the lid on and place it in the fridge. You now have breakfast made for the next 3-5 days. The first time I made these I wondered if my kids would eat them. Turns out I didn’t have to worry – they loved them and now I have to hide them in the back of the fridge.

You can make these with any berries you please.

Grab one fresh from the fridge and eat straight from the pot. Eating them cold is just like Bircher muesli. If you would prefer a warm bowl on a cold morning, dump everything in a small pan and heat for a minute or two – a healthy alternative to Uncle Toby’s Porridge satchels. Great tasting either way.

A side note: Call me strange – many people have, but eating my breakfast from a pretty Mason jar makes me feel as though I am treating myself to a decadent breakfast. A little like eating at a beautiful restaurant in a resort. Not sure why, and maybe it is just me but worth giving it a try 🙂

Finding little moments of pleasure in my day helps me to be thankful for the blessings I have. It’s too easy to forget these small blessings in the day to day rush of raising a family. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

And another side note; I just ate one of these for a snack while I was writing up this recipe. They are so yummy, you don’t have to save them just for breakfast.

  1. Layer the ingredients, excluding the berries or other fruit, in the order listed above in the prettiest mason jar you have. Stir gently with a spoon.
  2. Top with your fruit of choice. Place a lid on top and store in the fridge overnight.
  3. In the morning, it will be all ready to grab and eat. Will last more than one night in the fridge, between 3 and 5 nights, if no one else steals them. A word of warning - hide them from your kids!
  4. Once you stir them they won't look so pretty but this does not affect the taste 🙂
Trim Healthy Mamas these are FP or an E depending on which berries you use.
