5 Breakfast Recipes Every 20-Something Should Know

Breakfasts beyond just a quick bowl of cereal or maybe a scrambled egg can be a lot to ask in our morning rush. But, secretly, aren't we all kind of craving our Sunday brunch fare (pancakes, waffles, muffins, and beyond)? Why can't we have it all — the weekday crunch and the best breakfast ever?! Well, now we can! Welcome to Foodiversity — Breakfast Baking 101. We streamlined this whole breakfast process by using just one dry-mix base. Add a touch of this and dash of that to our dry mix, and you can whip up your breakfast dreams in no time.

The Ultimate Breakfast Cookie

Why is this the ultimate breakfast cookie, you ask? That's easy: It combines all our favorite things: chocolate, corn flakes, cinnamon, and — wait for it — bacon. Even though the bacon comes in the form of the vegetarian variety (we aim to be inclusive here at R29!), the meeting of savory and sweet creates the perfect little grab-and-go breakfast.
