Prepared Ramadan meals, appetizers, and even desserts for suhoor or iftar can save a lot of time and effort, especially since Ramadan is so long in the summer. Here are 10 healthy Ramadan meals to place in mason jars that can make Ramadan meals a whole lot easier.

Ramadan meals in a jar are simple to prepare and convenient when in a rush to get dinner together. I used 12 oz jars in the recipes below. However, you could use any size to fit your family’s needs; double the recipe if necessary.

Here are a few valuable tips when preparing your mason jar Ramadan meals:

  • Always wash the jar before use.
  • Let hot ingredients cool before placing them in the jar.
  • Always place wet ingredients at the bottom of the jar.
  • Your healthy Ramadan meals should be used within 5-7 days.
  • Seal the lid tightly to ensure freshness.
  • Choose the right size jar for your family, I used 12 oz. jars in the following recipes.
