Back to school can mean hectic mornings, but don't let breakfast stress you out. From homemade granola to easy cinnamon buns, all of these grab-and-go recipes will have your family out the door with happy faces.

1. Homemade Granola

This recipe was inspired by the homemade granola served The Inn at Occidental in Sonoma County, CA. With clusters of oats, nuts, seeds, dried fruits, toasted coconut, and wheat germ, it's as good for you as it is good tasting. GET THE RECIPE

2. Doughnut Muffins

Sweet and scented with cinnamon and nutmeg, these muffins taste remarkably like cake doughnuts. Kids love them because they're deliciously plain, and adults love them because they're just plain delicious. GET THE RECIPE

3. Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

If your family goes through a lot of granola bars, it makes sense to make them from scratch. These bars put all those expensive store-bought granola bars to shame. Plus, they're no-bake and take only ten minutes to make. GET THE RECIPE

4. Best-Ever Blueberry Muffins

Bursting with fresh blueberries with a tender crumb and sparkling sugar crust, these really are wonderful blueberry muffins. GET THE RECIPE

5. Blueberry Maple Bran Muffins

For a healthier blueberry muffin option, try these bran muffins. They're lower in fat and sugar than most muffins, and also enriched with wheat bran and whole wheat flour. GET THE RECIPE

6. Chocolate Chip Scones

Tender and buttery with morsels of melted chocolate within -- children (and let's not forget husbands) absolutely love these scones. GET THE RECIPE

7. Quick Cinnamon Buns with Buttermilk Glaze

These are everything you'd hope for in a cinnamon bun: light and tender inside, golden and slightly caramelized outside, and, best of all, easy to make. GET THE RECIPE

8. Morning Glory Muffins

Morning Glory Muffins are made with a little bit of everything -- whole wheat flour, carrots, apples, raisins, walnuts, orange juice, coconut and wheat germ -- and, true to their name, they're a glorious way to start the day. GET THE RECIPE

9. Perfectly Plain Banana Bread

With a tender crumb and deliciously crisp crust, this is my go-to banana bread recipe. It's phenomenal right out of the oven, and delicious all over again when you toast it for breakfast the next day.GET THE RECIPE
