Once you get the basic proportions right, we encourage you to get creative with the ingredients! You can even add almond butter or maple syrup and brown sugar to add a little twist to your oats, and top it all off with some fresh fruit and fresh berries.

This is ready to be eaten right out of the fridge but if you’re not a fan of a cold breakfast, simply pop the jar into a microwave for a minute to warm it up! This is definitely one of the easiest grab-and-go breakfasts out there, not to mention a nutritious morning meal.

Once you see the bottom layer start to cook, gently whip the egg from one end of the pan to the other. Repeat that across areas of the egg that aren’t cooked.
