6 Breakfast Pastries That Are Totally Worth the Carbs
Breakfast for dinner is always a fun way to mix things up, but what about having dessert for breakfast? Besides those few times you ate chocolate cake on a Saturday morning, it’s probably not something you think of often. But with pastries like warm, sticky cinnamon rolls and apple turnovers stuffed with syrupy filling, it’s definitely possible to satisfy your sweet tooth before 10 a.m.
Make these beauties over the weekend and have a quick breakfast to go during the week. Whether you eat them at room temperature or heat them up with a little pat of butter, they’re sure to give you the right dose of sweetness.
Prep and bake these stuffed pastries the night before so you can dig into these at the office. They’re loaded up with an apple-and-dried-cherry mixture that’ll definitely be more satisfying than your usual granola bar.

The best thing about monkey bread — besides the fact that it’s undeniably delicious — is the ability to share it easily. Make a big batch of this Food Network Magazine favorite and feed the whole family or take some in for your co-workers on a weekday.
If you don’t have a lot of time on your hands, Tyler Florence’s scones are your best bet. They’re ready in under 40 minutes, and they’re perfect for grab-and-go mornings. The lemon glaze is a nice addition, but if you’re taking these on your commute, they work just fine without it as well.
