A lot of cereal and oatmeal bars are the adult equivalent of the Pop-Tarts you’d eat (untoasted) on the bus to school—convenient yet lacking sustainable power. For a take-with-you morning meal that will also stay with you, grab a mason jar and try these nutritious recipes. Many can be made ahead of time, so all you need to do is grab the filled jar and a spoon on your way out the door, and you have a fresh, healthy, homemade breakfast, no matter how hectic your day is.
