Fall in Love with Breakfast

12 Morning Meals Worth Getting Out of Bed for

No matter what season it is, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but in the cooler months, it becomes that much more crucial. Not only will it fill your belly, ward off hunger, and keep you going strong until lunchtime, but the thought of that comforting meal will help rouse you from bed on chilly mornings. From apple-cinnamon oatmeal to pumpkin waffles and pancakes, we've got a dozen meals worth getting out of bed for this fall. Even better: These breakfasts are as healthy as they are easy!

  2-Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins: These simple muffins are perfect for cool fall mornings.
  Apple-Cinnamon Slow Cooker Oatmeal: Slow Cooker Oatmeal: Start the week off right with sweet and creamy slow cooker oats for breakfast. The evaporated milk adds such creaminess that you'll think you're having pudding for breakfast.
