And the countdown begins! As a kid, Christmas morning was always the absolute BEST part of the year. For the special morning my family celebrated with one of 2 breakfast rituals – a can of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls or a box of Entenmann’s chocolate doughnuts. We loved it all – although my sister and I could honestly care less about the food because the morning was all about waking up and waiting sooooo patiently for my parents to get their coffee before we could start opening presents.
The recipe suggestions here are a little more homemade, but hey no judgement if you have a soft spot for soft canned cinnamon rolls :). Click directly on the photos to go to each recipe.
Pictured above: Cacao Nib Strawberry Vegan Waffles – these can be made ahead, frozen and popped into the toaster or toaster oven. Feel free to switch the cacao nibs for chocolate chips, blueberries or whatever filling your family likes.
If you’re a parent, you’ll need your coffee but you’re gonna want to make it quick. Make this Homemade Vanilla Hazelnut Milk the day before – chill it overnight and then pour yourself the most decadent holiday morning latte.
For something slightly sweet and nicely spiced, try these Healthy Apple Cinnamon Muffins.
Or on a savory note, this Spring Onion Frittata:
… or there’s always one of the most popular recipes on this site, Vegan French Toast (or here’s a non-vegan version or a nutella stuffed version if you’re feeling extra indulgent):
One of my new favorites, this Blueberry Coconut Baked Oatmeal is great for brunch.
On a super cold holiday morning try this superfood Maca Cacao Hot Chocolate:
Holiday or not, I love a toasted slice of this super seedy Pumpkin Cranberry Nut Seed Loaf. It keeps for a few days in the fridge and it also freezes well.
Since it’s the holidays let’s celebrate! These Apple Mimosas are simple twist on the classic and they’re always a hit at brunch:
