High-protein, low-carb breakfast in a jar

Filling low-carb breakfast in a jar

  • Place all the ingredients apart from blueberries, yogurt, and cinnamon in a jar and add enough plant-based milk to cover it all. I must admit I haven't measured how much milk I use but it's probably around 200ml if not more. You can add more or lesser amounts of milk from what I used, depending on how soaked you want your seeds to be in the morning. The more milk you use, the softer your seeds will become in the morning.
  • Leave it to soak overnight.
  • Just before eating it, add some blueberries on top with a spoon of Greek yoghurt. Sprinkle some cinnamon on top. If needed add some more milk.
  • Mix all the ingredients together and enjoy.


You don't need protein powder for this low carb breakfast but if you have it you can use it. I sometimes use a vegan protein powder blend from Bulk Powders.
If you choose to use naturally sweetened protein powder, there is no need to add Yacon syrup or stevia extract to the mix.
You can try skipping some of the ingredients if you currently don't have them at home but I recommend you always have milled flaxseeds at home as they are really healthy (rich in omega-3s and various minerals and vitamins). As for the fruits, you can experiment based on what’s available in your kitchen or area. If you’re planning to make meals in a jar, don’t be afraid to mix and match different fruits to know which one is your favorite.
