It’s a happy day at Your Home Depot – Ball Mason jars are back in stock! If you arent already on the bandwagon (get on it by the way!) these little beauties are amazingly versatile. Make up layered salads with lots of veggies, protein and pasta or rice for a quick, healthy and delicious lunch to grab as you walk out the door, or perfect for overnight oats or your morning smoothie.
Why not use your mason jars to make delicious overnight oats (prepare them all up on a Sunday and pop them in your bag for work). These make for a yummy and filling breakfast to sustain you until lunchtime, and whats more you can get really creative with your ingredients!
We love this recipe from Warm Vanilla Sugar blog. Once you get the basics right you can add in whatever you like! Use almond, coconut or regular milk, add some chia seeds for a nutty crunch, and for sweetness add maple syrup or a dash of honey. Spices such as cinnamon and vanilla really bring overnight oats to another level, and you can use a myriad of fruit combinations, such as mashed banana, grated apple, peaches, and berries. We love a sprinkle of coconut flakes or a handful of frozen blueberries on the top. Why have a boring breakfast?
