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.
This On the Go Granola Breakfast, for example, 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.
The secret, however, is in using homemade granola. Making granola at home is not difficult at all, actually quite the opposite, it’s as easy as it can get and it only takes a couple of minutes of extra prep time, the rest of the time it takes to get done is hands-off time so you can use it to meal prep more or relax and watch tv.
This homemade granola is not only delicious as part of these jars but is also incredibly good as a quick snack (just eat it alone for a crunchy treat) or served in a big bowl with a good ol’ splash of cold milk and a couple of banana slices.
