Sometimes we are tired of eggs. And sausage. And bacon...well maybe not bacon. Sometimes I miss something sweet and I don't want a smoothie. Sure, there are muffins. I like those too, but on weeks when I have made a savory muffin, these crunchy and creamy breakfast jars are a real treat. They are really versatile and full of stuff that is good for you. Seeds and coconut, cocoa nibs and flax. You have the dry part pre-assembled, ready to add your choice of milk or yogurt. The combination of coconut and cocoa nibs is so good. The cocoa nibs add a rich flavor and crunch, so try to use those if you can find them. I found mine locally at Sprouts.
These servings are not big, but they are satisfying. You may be surprised how they will stick to the ribs. You can always up the serving size if you want, but I find these to be just right for a quick weekday breakfast or an evening snack.
