Busy mornings can make it rough getting in a healthy breakfast, try this on the go granola recipe for a quick breakfast you can take with you.
If you are looking for even more on the go breakfast options we’ve got breakfast quesadillas (easy to carry on the go), or sip a pumpkin apple smoothie on the way to drop of the kids at school or on your commute, or whip up a batch of lemon poppy seed muffins and store in the freezer to grab on your way out the door.
Hectic, busy, with one too many things to do, that’s how a traditional morning is around here. Luckily this On the Go Granola Breakfast is a total life saver.
I’m going to be honest with you, I’ve never been a huge fan of meal prepping, for some reason I always found the task daunting, difficult, and more a pain than an actual time saver. Oh boy, was I wrong!
Finally, after years of doing meal prepping all wrong I found out a way to do it right, it’s just a matter of sticking with simple recipes, ingredients, and having a good couple of jars on hand. Mason jars like these are great we found them on Amazon here with our affiliate link.
How to Meal Prep with this Recipe
This On the Go Granola Breakfast has become my go to Sunday recipe when I’m meal prepping for the week. It’s super easy to whip up in a couple of minutes, the ingredients are all things you probably already have or buy regularly, and the result lasts well over a couple of days so you can make a batch on the weekend and have enough breakfasts ready for the week.
Prep your jars with yogurt and fruit or any other mix-ins. Wait to add the granola until right before you eat to keep it nice and crisp. Slip the granola into individual bags to grab on the go with your yogurt jar!
