Looking for Grab-N-Go breakfast ideas? Here’s one that takes only five minutes to put together. You can tell yourself it’s a banana split.

This grab-n-go recipe comes from MedlinePlus.com. I’d advise adding more protein so that you have about 20 grams of protein for breakfast. You could add nuts, chia seeds, flax seeds or even mix some nut butter into the yogurt. You could also bring a hard-boiled egg.
