Sure you can have a wholesome bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. Or you can go the traditional route with bacon and eggs. But why in the world would you want to waste a breakfast meal on those options when you could be getting down with the stickiest of sticky buns?

Not only are these buns perfectly soft and fluffy, but they're also topped with a butterscotch sauce that will leave you in a food comma you'll never want to wake up from.

Of course, we understand that not everyone dares to test the limits of their metabolism every single morning (because you definitely would be doing so with this recipe -- that's why we call it a daily indulgence). But if you have to opt out of this breakfast treat, at least you can dream of its sweetness as you eat your bowl of whole grain oats.

  • Sweet Potato Doughnuts

    Never tried a sweet potato donut? Well, you should. The addition of sweet potato puree adds a naturally sweet and earthy flavor. These donuts are baked instead of fried, meaning they are much healthier than the average one -- and they go great next to a cup of fresh-brewed coffee. <strong>Get the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/27/sweet-potato-doughnuts_n_1061079.html" target="_hplink">Sweet Potato Doughnuts</a> recipe</strong>

  • Strawberry-Almond Scones

    While strawberries are definitely one of the favored fruits, they don't get a lot of play in baked goods -- which is a shame since they work, oh, so well.

And with the use of whole-wheat flour, this is a breakfast pastry you can feel good about eating. <strong>Get the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/27/strawberry-almond-scones_n_1061078.html" target="_hplink">Strawberry-Almond Scones</a> recipe</strong>

  • Banana Quinoa Muffins

    This may look like a muffin, and it may taste like a muffin, but it has way more nutrition than a regular muffin. Quinoa gives this recipe a nice grainy quality, and also provides it with a ton of protein. Agave nectar is used in place of regular sugar, and the bananas provide a healthy amount of potassium. <strong>Get the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/27/banana-quinoa-muffins_n_1057457.html" target="_hplink">Banana Quinoa Muffins</a> recipe</strong>
