Make: Muesli Jars

My life lately has been all about organisation. Whatever I can make in advance, I do. These muesli pots have been such a success in the Sew Brunswick household this week. Mr 5 year old demolishes one every morning. He eats the lot, which makes me feel better when I unpack an uneaten lunch box at the end of the day...

They're super simple and a real life saver in the morning. Not that getting a bowl of weet bix or muesli out is particularly taxing, it just gets a bit boring after a while. I simply put four pots on the table and breakfast is served. You could also take a jar with you if you don't have time for breakfast before you leave home.

I make them up the night before but they do last 3 days if needed. Here's how I make mine.

In a 250 mL jar, put 1/3 cup oats, 1 teaspoon of chia seeds, a squirt of honey, 2 tablespoons of greek yoghurt and 1/4 cup of milk. Give this a bit of a stir before topping with fruit of your choice. I used mixed frozen berries and stewed stone fruit (not together) this week. I think stewed prunes or dried fruit compote would also work well. Top with 1 tablespoon of crunch muesli (optional). Then store in the fridge overnight for up to 3 days. Yum!

Enjoy with a good coffee!

  1. I'm loving these jar ideas. All set to go for tomorrow. I've got 3 large salad jars and 3 small ones for bircher muesli. I've always been a lunch-packer too. But since returning to work after the Xmas break, quite a few of the food groups have been seriously underrepresented. Back on track tomorrow thanks to your lunch ideas.

  2. You've made my week Bernice! Thanks for the positive comment. I'm so glad I can share my love of food and organisation and lunch packing!! They are delicious.

  3. Just posted a pic of mine on twitter... Along with my lunch salad jar!
    Thanks for the ideas!
