Quinoa Breakfast Jars


I created this recipe while I was totally in a bind! I was all out of oats and I was meal prepping. All I had was berries, my Cute Nutrition protein and various unsalted roasted nuts. What’s a busy person to do when they are preparing for morning meals? 


Improvise. It’s easy. Quinoa is a grain you can do anything with, plus it’s high in protein. It’s changes up your overnight oats just a smidge.  You can check out my instagram from Sept 5 for a really cool hack for this one! 


2 cup uncooked quinoa

10 Tablespoons of chia seeds

5 scoops of your favorite protein

1 large container of your favorite berries rinsed and chopped 

1/3 cup of nuts


  1. Boil your quinoa until fluffy. 
  2. Layer your quinoa, chia seeds, protein, and berries in each container. That’s 1 cup of quinoa, 2 table spoons of chia seeds, 1 scoop of protein and berries per container. 
  3. When you're ready to eat it add your steamed non diary milk. You can use water, but milk will give you more of a breakfast feel. It’s very filling, but enough to fill you up throughout your day. 
  4. Add your nuts on top and stir.
