1. Homemade Granola

Forget about serving store-bought cereal for breakfast. You can make your own granola at home, using whatever nuts and flavorings you like. Prepare a jar full of this and you have a healthy breakfast ready in the blink of an eye. Just add milk or use it to top yogurt and you are ready to go.

6. Homemade Labneh

Also known as yogurt cheese or Lebanese cream cheese — use labneh as a spread for sandwiches, a dip with some carrot and cucumber sticks, or drizzle with some olive oil and serve with pita for breakfast along with some mint or olives. Labneh is something I am never without when school starts.

8. Homemade Chocolate-Almond Butter

This almond butter is amazing as a spread for sandwiches, as a dip with some apples, or simply by the spoonful. It is better, tastier, healthier, and cheaper than anything you can buy at the store. You can make it with chocolate, plain, with cinnamon and honey, or better yet, let your kids come up with their own flavor for their almond butter.
