We all know mornings can be hectic. We also know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day; a nutritious breakfast kick-starts our metabolism, curbs cravings and helps to keep our blood sugar level throughout the day. This recipe is a great solution to an early morning rush because you can make it at night, wake up, grab and go. Making a large batch at the beginning of the week and dividing it into mason jars is a great way to minimize effort!
