In the morning, everyone's in a rush—whether it's for class or work, not everyone has time to stop and enjoy breakfast with family or friends. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a delicious sweet or savory breakfast; there are plenty delicious breakfast recipes for one. It’s the most important meal of the day—you might as well make it a good one.

Not only are these pancakes single-serving, so you don't have to deal with leftovers, but they're also healthier than your traditional bisquick. You can spruce them up with delicious add-ins, from blueberries to chocolate chips.
