Fact: Weekday mornings are almost always chaotic. But that doesn't mean you have to settle for a store-bought granola bar or tasteless bagel from the coffee cart. With a little planning and prep, you can wake up happy knowing that you've got something nourishing and delicious waiting for you.

From strawberry muffins and scrambled chickpea pitas to a savory parfait and overnight oats, here are 20 make-ahead breakfasts to make your mornings a little brighter.

Muffins and Scones

It's scientifically proven that facing your alarm clock is much easier when there are muffins and scones waiting for you in the kitchen. Bake up a batch of breakfast treats on Sunday and enjoy them all week long — on your commute to work or once you've settled in at your desk.

Breakfast Sandwiches

Just because you don't have time to cook in the morning doesn't mean you should rule out the breakfast sandwich. These hearty, filling options are ideal for big-batch cooking, and will help you tackle breakfast with ease.

Yogurt and Parfaits

If yogurt is your go-to, grab a few Mason jars and make your own fruit-on-the-bottom cups or a layered parfait. If you're feeling adventurous, yogurt breakfast pops will keep you cool and satisfy your growling stomach.

Oatmeal on the Go

Whether you go for warm oats or an overnight version, this is an easy meal to prep and eat on the go.
