4 Recipes to Jumpstart Your Morning

I know plenty of people who don't eat breakfast, and I don't understand any of them.

So when I read that Quaker Oats was struggling to revitalize the brand largely because not enough people actually eat breakfast, I was shocked. In fact, the president of Quaker notes that only 40 percent of Americans eat breakfast.

This, in short, is crazy. I easily love breakfast twice — no, three times — as much as I love every other meal. Here's proof, in the form of some of my favorite a.m. recipes:

Dutch babies. This recipe is adapted from The Grand Central Baking Book, a wonderful cookbook by bakery owner Piper Davis and writer Ellen Jackson.

Espresso chip scones with coffee glaze. If you're a coffee drinker, you'll go crazy for these weekend treats.

Multigrain pancakes. With oats, cornmeal and whole-wheat pastry flour, these pancakes are tender, hearty, and healthful.

Agave-sweetened granola with pistachios, dried apricots, and golden raisins. Because everyone, even breakfast haters, should make from-scratch granola at least once.

Don't have time to cook? Grab a handful of nuts. They'll provide a protein jolt to jumpstart your day.
