Despite good intentions, mornings can end up being a blur of alarm snoozes, coffee and rushing out the door -- making breakfast non-existent.

To ensure breakfast doesn't fall by the wayside, try these quick and easy grab-and-go breakfasts -- from crunchy muesli bars, fruit-packed muffins, chia pudding pots to healthy banana bread.

These 10 on-the-go breakfasts are easy to prepare, so all you need to do is prep a batch the night before (or on the weekend) and grab one as you head out the door.

1. Crunchy baked granola bars

From Minimalist Baker.

These fibre-rich brekkie treats make granola on-the-go-friendly. Combining those sweet and crunchy granola qualities in bar form, after baking in the oven, they're ready to be dipped in a bit of dark chocolate. (Omit the chocolate step to keep these really healthy.)

Here's the recipe.
