For morning people, life begins after the first sip of eye-opening coffee. But nothing puts the icing on your day like a breakfast pastry. Whether you’re on the go or like to take the morning slow, make your tastebuds happy with the first bite of buttery dough. Luckily for sweet tooths, we’ve blended together a list of our favorite breakfast pastries to get you out of bed in the morning.
- Cinnamon Rolls
Nothing helps you roll out of bed like a rolled pastry layered in butter, cinnamon, and powdered sugar. First created in Sweden, this signature pastry starts as yeast-leavened dough and then makes a magical transformation into a gluten-filled pastry roll that melts in your mouth. Ne-Mo’s Pull-Apart Cinnamon Rolls rise to the top of the list with their buttery texture and generous portion sizes. Leaving you with a taste of old-fashioned home-baked goodness, this classic delight is everything you love about a cinnamon roll but with double the amount of cream cheese icing and fluffy, cinnamon-infused dough.
- Blueberry Muffins
Set the stage for a clear and sunny day with a classic blueberry muffin, the taste of comfort itself. Moist, fluffy and loaded with blueberries, Ne-Mo’s Wild Blueberry Muffins are everything you could want in a traditional made-from-scratch pastry. Made with butter, eggs, and antioxidant-rich wild blueberries, these light and fluffy muffins will keep you coming back for more.
- Chocolate Croissant
Bring the flavors of Paris to your breakfast table with a chocolate croissant, the crescent-shaped pastry that launched a thousand cafe au laits. Layered in butter, then rolled and folded several times before being filled with chocolate, this croissant is well known for its flaky melt-in-your-mouth texture. Perfected by the French, this pastry was rumored to be introduced to Europe as a by-product of the crusades.
Make the most of this flaky treat with a cup of dark roast coffee and steamed milk, the French breakfast of champions. If you’re in the mood to double down on chocolate, the rich and buttery notes also pair well with hot cocoa. Add a dollop a whip cream and se magnifique!
- Cherry Danish
Mexico created the churro, the US perfected the apple pie and Denmark brought us the danish. A glorious combination of fresh, tart cherries and flaky chewy pastry dough, get a head start on your daily recommended fruit intake with a yummy filling of fresh fruit preserves. Drizzled with sugar icing and coated in a honey glaze, the classic danish makes a tasty breakfast option any day of the week.
- Apple Strudel
Make your morning routine even sweeter when you add an apple strudel to your breakfast options. One of the most popular fruits for pastries, the apple gets the royal treatment in a made-from-scratch strudel. Traditional strudel pastry dough is elastic and uses no added sugar, making it the perfect marriage of flaky, buttery crust with sweet and tangy apple filling.
- Glazed Donut
When it comes to breakfast, ‘donut’ take any chances and choose the glazed variety, the most popular of this quintessential American treat. There’s a reason why the glazed donut is a favorite breakfast treat. The airy and chewy dough gives it a melt-in-your-mouth texture that is seriously addictive (and probably why they come by the dozen).
Life is short, so forget about your diet and make your mornings extra sweet with these to-die-for pastries.
