10 Sweet and Savoury Breakfasts You Can Make Overnight

How many times have you had eggs and toast this week?

Or greasy bacon? Or cold milk and cereal? Hey, not judging! Look, I feel you. We’re doing so many things in the morning — get the kids ready for school, make sure they brush their teeth and have the correct pair of socks on, make sure they’re wearing underwear, and then make sure they don’t leave their homework behind, and then you’ll have to take care of yourself and get yourself ready. So, really, who has the time to prepare a proper healthy breakfast?

But has it ever occurred to you to make breakfasts ahead of time? Like the night before or even the weekend before? Yes, and they’re really delicious and healthy to boot. And they’re so easy to make, even kids can prepare them. Say goodbye to bland and hurried breakfasts because we give you 10 lovely breakfasts you can make overnight!

Let’s start with…

Muesli Bars (or Granola bars as they are known elsewhere for our US visitors) are the yummiest, but store-bought ones can contain so much chemicals that we don’t really need. An alternative is buying a bag of granola and mixing it with fruits and other magical ingredients.
