Banana Coconut Breakfast Jar

Growing bored of toast, I started noticing enticing overnight oat jars. Stirred together than put in the refrigerator, they couldn’t be easier. I added chia seeds to turn the mixture into a smooth pudding and increase the nutritional value. I also increased the health benefits by adding ground flax seeds.

I think my favorite breakfast jar topping is peanut butter and blueberries. A close second was a banana coconut variation with almond butter. There are endless combinations. Try it with your favorite cereal, yogurt or oatmeal topping. Post your favorites!
