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.

Not really in the mood for quick bread? Want some muffins instead? No problem! Just use the same exact recipe, but pour the batter into muffin tins and bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Basic Muffin Recipe
Makes 4-6 jumbo muffins, 8-12 medium muffins, 10-14 mini muffins

1 1/4 cups Basic Dry Baking Mix, plus an additional 1/3 cup of sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract
6 tbsp butter, melted
1 cup total of mix-ins such as berries, other fruit, cheese, etc. (chocolate chips pictured here)

1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
2. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
3. Whisk together all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
4. Whisk together the melted butter, vanilla, milk, and eggs in a separate, medium-sized bowl. Then, pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix with a rubber spatula until well combined.
5. Fold in your mix-ins (we used one cup of mini chocolate chips here).
6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
7. Serve immediately, or store in tupperware to last you throughout the week.
