If you need another reason to fall in love with these recipes, they come with one pleasant side effect.

The enticing aroma will waft through your house and gently coax everyone from their beds. They will want to know what smells so heavenly.

These 24 breakfast breads are sure to start your day out right! 

1. Easy Pumpkin Bread

Don’t freak out, but this easy pumpkin bread is better than Starbucks pumpkin bread! Save yourself time and money by making your own homemade batch. 

This recipe makes two loaves, so you’ll have plenty to share — or to eat all by yourself. No judging here!

The smell of pumpkin and cinnamon will have your entire house smelling like the holidays. 

If you’re like me, you’ll want to add in a cup of mini-chocolate chips right before you bake. Yum! 

Homemade Cornbread

2. Cornbread

If you’ve only made cornbread for dinner, I’m here to say you’re missing out. 

The best thing about cornbread is that you can make it savory or sweet. Eat it with only a little butter or spread on some honey or jam for a decadent breakfast. 

Cornbread is so easy, you’ll need to make an effort not to over-mix. A few lumps are okay.

Check your pantry because you might even have all the ingredients already!

3. Irish Soda Bread

If you’ve never made bread before and are nervous to bake with yeast, try out Irish soda bread.

Baking soda is the sole leavening agent in Irish soda bread. Although, the buttermilk is extremely important, too.

The lactic acid reacts with the baking soda, creating carbon dioxide which helps the bread rise. Fun, right?

It’s a pretty simple bread and can be eaten with pretty much anything. Slather it with butter, honey, or jam!

4. Chocolate Banana Bread

Bake this flavorful and moist chocolate banana bread for breakfast and your family will thank you!

The key to banana bread is overripe bananas. I know it sounds weird, but you want them to turn very brown to get the perfect amount of sweetness.

Bananas also keep the bread super moist.

Chocolate chips go in the batter and are sprinkled on top, so I hope you love chocolate.

Don’t let anyone tell you it’s too much chocolate for breakfast. Although you could also have a piece for a late-night snack!

5. Lemon Almond Poppyseed Bread

This lemon almond poppyseed bread is vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free!

If you are trying to eat healthier but don’t want to give up bread, this is the recipe for you!

You could serve this at any function and no one would be able to guess that it’s actually healthy.

It’s slightly sweet from the coconut sugar and maple syrup and bursting with flavor from the lemon juice and almond extract. 

You won’t feel guilty about eating the entire loaf!

6. Carrot Bread

I’ll bet you never knew putting carrots in bread could be so delicious!  

This carrot bread recipe uses the normal ingredients like eggs, sugar, oil, and flour.

The cinnamon and nutmeg add a ton of flavor while the walnuts and raisins give you something extra delicious in every bite. 

After grating the carrots, be sure to squeeze out the extra moisture before adding them into the batter.

7. Cheese Bread

Cheese bread for breakfast? Yes, please!

This bread is twisty and chewy with ribbons of melted cheese in every bite.

Don’t substitute the buttermilk for a different option, as it complements the cheese perfectly and helps give it that chewy crust.

After rolling the cheese up into the dough, you’ll want to cut it in half and twist the two sides together to give this bread its fun shape.

Brush the top with your melted butter and garlic mixture right before baking for the most mouthwatering bread!

8. Honey Oat Bread

This honey oat bread is crispy on the outside and just slightly sweet on the inside. It’s the perfect breakfast bread. 

Putting this bread together is a cinch. Since it’s a no-knead bread, you’ll want to mix it as little as possible.

Although, it does take a little while to make since you need to allow time for the dough to rise. After a second rise, it’s ready to go in the oven. 

Let the bread cool and it’s ready to devour!

9. Lemon Zucchini Bread

Don’t freak out just because zucchini is in the name! This lemon zucchini bread is bright and moist. I promise you will fall in love. 

With lemon zest, lemon juice, and lemon glaze, this bread is citrusy and reminds me of summer.

The glaze is also slightly sweet, adding the perfect finishing touch. 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and with ingredients like zucchini and lemon, you can at least feel like you’re getting a healthy start! 

10. Pistachio Bread

Not only is this pistachio bread delicious, it’s also super pretty to look at since it’s green! 

The green color comes from the pistachio pudding mix, which also helps keep this bread moist.

You’ll have the batter mixed up by the time your oven preheats, so you can let it bake while you get ready for the day. 

My favorite part of this bread? The cinnamon sugar swirl in the middle! Yum!

11. Cinnamon Quick Bread

This cinnamon quick bread is guaranteed to get your family out of bed with its amazing aroma!

As the name suggests, it’s a quick bread to throw together, and you don’t even need yeast.

You’ll also get to have fun with this recipe when you make the cinnamon swirls!

I suggest eating this warm, but this bread doesn’t make it long enough in my house to cool down, so I don’t know otherwise.

Slather it with butter or eat it plain. It’s delicious both ways!

12. Blueberry Bread

It’s totally okay if you just want to stare at this gorgeous blueberry bread.

You’ll want to take a break from looking and take a bite because this bread is fruity and delicious!

In some breads the blueberries will sink to the bottom, but you don’t have to worry about that in this recipe because the batter is so thick.

But you could flour the blueberries first, if you’re worried. 

This is a great portable breakfast when you have a busy morning!

13. Peanut Butter Bread

Peanut butter cookie lovers are going to go crazy over this peanut butter bread.

Using only common pantry items means that you can probably make this bread right now!

You can absolutely eat this bread plain, but it also goes well with a ton of different things.

Sprinkle in some chocolate chips or peanuts if you want a little crunch. Fans of classic peanut butter and jelly could even spread some jelly on top!

14. Peach Bread

Chopped fresh peaches transform this bread into a bright and scrumptious treat, perfect for any morning. 

The ingredients are pretty simple, so you can whip this up even on those busy mornings.

There’s an easy trick to make peeling peaches a breeze — blanch your peaches. This will allow you to remove all the skin quickly. 

Don’t forget the peach glaze! The glaze is sweet, fruity, and kicks this bread up another notch. Be prepared for everyone to ask for a second slice! 

15. Strawberry Bread

This slightly sweet strawberry bread is the ideal dish to class up your next brunch.

Not using any yeast means this is an easy bread to prepare. I also love that you can use fresh or frozen strawberries.

There’s nothing quite like the taste of fresh juicy strawberries, but unfortunately, they’re not always in season.

You could easily substitute the strawberries for your favorite fruit. 

Moist and beautiful, this strawberry bread will have everyone singing your praises!

16. Walnut-Date Quick Bread

Walnut-date quick bread is a classic recipe with simple ingredients that you can put together on even the busiest mornings. 

Quick bread means that it doesn’t contain any yeast, so you don’t have to take the time for your dough to rise.

This recipe turns out super moist and just slightly sweet from the brown sugar. 

Some people add raisins instead of dates, but you can make it however you want!

17. Cream Cheese Cranberry Bread

Cream cheese and cranberries combine to give you the softest and tastiest bread around!

Cranberries can be a little tart, so the cream cheese mellows them out and they compliment each other perfectly.

The cream cheese also makes this bread so moist. Is there anything cream cheese can’t do?

While this cream cheese cranberry bread would make the perfect dish for the holidays, there’s no reason you can’t make it all year long!

18. Jalapeno Cheddar Bread

While I enjoy sweets as much as the next person, I prefer savory foods like this jalapeño cheddar bread. 

The bread is so crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.

It’s cheesy, with a little tang from using sharp cheddar cheese, and the jalapeños add just the right amount of spice. 

It’s super versatile and can be eaten with some honey butter in the morning or with a big pot of chili for dinner.

19. Hummingbird Bread

Ready for a little history? This is a variation of hummingbird cake that was created in Jamaica.

It has citrusy, Caribbean inspired flavored and was actually called doctor bird cake! 

This hummingbird bread is a mixture of that cake and banana bread. With pineapple and coconut, it makes me feel like I’m in the tropics.

The bananas ensure that this bread is so moist and delicious. 

If that doesn’t sound good enough, it also gets topped with a cream cheese frosting! 

20. White Chocolate Chip Raspberry Bread

White chocolate chip raspberry bread is totally a breakfast bread. Don’t let anyone tell you differently!

Is there a more classic combination than fruit and chocolate? Add this dynamite duo into a moist bread and you’ll get perfection.

It actually isn’t an overly sweet bread even if the name makes you think otherwise.

The tartness of the raspberries works in tandem with the sweet ingredients. 

Enjoy a quiet breakfast with coffee or take a slice to go. 

21. Sweet Potato Bread

This sweet potato bread will have you thinking you’re eating sweet potato pie for breakfast.

Even though this recipe calls for fresh sweet potatoes, you can definitely use canned if you are running out of time or are just looking to make this bread easier.

The toasted pecans add just enough crunch in this moist bread.

22. Apple Bread

This apple bread is dense and full of cinnamon apples. It’s a great grab-and-go breakfast to keep on hand at all times. 

The hardest part of making this bread is peeling the apples, but it will be so worth it.

Tart apples are countered with cinnamon and sugar, creating the most satisfying bread that you won’t be able to stop eating. 

You could spread anything you want on the top, but it doesn’t need a single thing!

23. Green Tomato Quick Bread

At least take a look at the recipe for this green tomato quick bread before making any weird faces.

And to answer your question, no, it doesn’t taste like tomatoes!

From the outside, you could easily get this confused with zucchini bread. It’s actually very similar in taste to banana bread.

However, the green tomatoes make this bread slightly less sweet. 

Make this for your family and see if anyone can guess the secret ingredient! 

Banana Walnut Bread

24. Banana Bread

Everyone needs a go-to banana bread recipe. It’s a classic that can be made any time of the year. 

This recipe is based on the Starbucks recipe. It’s moist and slightly sweet from the bananas. The walnuts also give a bite of crunch in an otherwise soft bread.

Don’t be afraid to let your bananas turn black! They’re sweeter and make the best bread.
