Cherry-Almond Baked Oatmeal

Just because breakfast is supposed to be nutritious doesn’t mean it also has to be bland. Take this delicious recipe for oatmeal. Assembled in one bowl, it can be prepped right before baking or the night before to save time in the morning.

Whether it's served warm, at room temperature or cold (hello, leftovers), we’re big fans of the versatile frittata. Looking to make it even more beneficial? Just load it up with extra veggies like red peppers or mushrooms.

Whether you’re gluten intolerant or practicing a strict diet, there’s something on the griddle for you: protein-rich, wheat-free flapjacks. Instead of flour, this recipe relies on mashed bananas, eggs and shredded dried coconut to create alternative pancakes with a slightly tropical flavor and a texture that hovers somewhere between that of traditional hotcakes and crepes.
