Somewhere between plain old cereal and drawn-out weekend brunches lies the totally achievable, make-ahead weekday breakfast.

A good make-ahead breakfast always feels like a treat, is whole-wheaty or fruit-packed enough to be hearty without being pious, and you can knock it out on a weekend afternoon. Whether granolas, bars, or breads, they're our stumble-out-of-bed breakfasts of choice. Here are 15 you can make now and eat all week (or freeze, and get ahead for next week):
