Not everyone is a “breakfast person.” But even those who prefer to sleep in will want to wake up early for these breakfast recipes.

If you’re having trouble getting out of bed, nothing will lure you out from under the covers like the smell of freshly baked raspberry swirl rolls or a blueberry waffle bake. In any case, you can also pour yourself a tall iced coffee to get you going. (Check out these three iced coffee and latte recipes. You’re welcome.)

None of these recipes take too long to make, and a few you can actually prepare the night before. So really, you won’t have to wake up early to make breakfast, just to eat it. And looking at these breakfast recipes, that seems worth it.
