The new year is in full swing and it’s time to head back to work. If your morning routine usually means skipping breakfast, resolve to start eating the most important meal of the day, every day this year. With the recipes below you’ll be able to turn breakfast into a grab-and-go meal, so you can make it to your morning meeting on time.

Instead of buying prepackaged granola bars this year, try making your own. Whip up a batch of Ina Garten’s five-star bars on Sunday afternoon and you’ll have breakfast (and snacks) to last you through the week!

Sometimes, breakfast just means a large cup of coffee. Turn your morning pick-me-up into breakfast, too. Jeff Mauro blends strong coffee with peanut butter, bananas and a few other ingredients for a protein-packed breakfast that fits in your cup holder.

If you crave something on the savory side, bacon-cheddar scones will hit the spot. You can make them in 30 minutes on Sunday night and you’ll have six scones for the rest of the week – including Saturday.

Consider this an upgrade from your usual apple with peanut butter. You’ll mix creamy peanut butter with crunchy granola for added texture and some sweetness. Place the mixture into the middle of a cored apple and you’re out the door.

Berry Bagel Bites

It’s tough to make a batch of fresh bagels last all week long, so Kelsey Nixon is turning this classic breakfast sandwich into a puff. Choose from a mixed berry or blackberry filling (or make a few of each) for your dozen and enjoy them all week long.
