14 Breakfast Recipes That Will Change Your Life—or Your Morning Routine
Are you stuck in a breakfast rut? Whether you're a Bacon-Egg-and-Cheese person or a cereal every day sort, we're here to help if you're ready to break out and mix up your morning routine. These fun breakfast ideas will keep you off the snooze button.
For those days when time is tight (isn't that every weekday morning?), try our creative breakfast ideas that can be made ahead of time and heated up just before you run out the door, like Breakfast Taquitos. These crunchy cylinders of tortilla packed with eggs, cheddar, sausage, and salsa are quite like a breakfast burrito but better—they're so great for eating on the go. Other grab-and-go options, like our honey-sweetened Frozen Yogurt and Fruit Pops or rainbow-healthy Smoothie Parfait, ensure you have variety even when you're in a rush. Perhaps our most portable breakfast is Granola Bark, and it's the perfect meal for those who like to snack on granola sans milk.
When you have hungry kids or guests, set up a gorgeous spread like the Bruschetta Bar shown here. It's the best way to make sure there is a little something for everyone, from smoked salmon and cucumber to raspberry jam with aged goat cheese to salami with mustard or banana with coconut flakes. And when you don't have a full house, serve yourself your favorite from this array of toast toppers.
But our breakfast ideas don't end there. If you're looking for something healthy to start your day, consider recipes like Coconut-Raspberry Breakfast Pudding, which is a sweet but not sweetened breakfast that's creamy thanks to the coconut milk and rich in fiber from oats and fresh raspberries.
Whether you like savory or sweet breakfasts or like a hearty meal or something lighter to start the day, you'll find alluring options here in our creative selection of breakfast ideas.

Some people like granola with yogurt, others prefer it with milk—or maybe even non-dairy milk. Those who fall into the former camp and prefer to snack on granola dry will adore this cluster-heavy bark.

Bake and cool, then pack into bags for a snackable breakfast that pairs well with a latte.
