Peach Crisp Breakfast in a Jar

Time and again I'm reminded that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I have to admit, when I do make the effort to eat a healthy breakfast, not only does my morning go better, I tend to eat less during the day. That said, I'm a busy person, and often have to take my meals on the fly - which is why I'm so crazy about any kind of something I can make in a jar!

And what could be better than today's recipe for fresh, seasonal peaches, baked to juicy perfection and topped with homemade granola?


 If you said "nothing" that would be the right answer!

This is a quick, easy, and very delicious breakfast to have on hand for busy days, so if you try it, let me know! As well, be sure to subscribe to follow this blog, and follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Youtube.
