Make good use out of those extra ripe bananas while keeping things on the healthier side by using applesauce instead of oil. Baked, soft, and fluffy donut are a perfect match for a strong cup of morning coffee.
Paleo waffles that are gluten free and dairy free are delicious for breakfast or brunch. Made with almond and coconut flour you would never guess these waffles are paleo, gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free. You could also serve these with chicken & waffles.
If you’ve never had Cake Batter Pancakes, you’re seriously missing out. The batter is super easy and sinfully delicious. You may use vanilla, chocolate, or whatever flavor of mix that you want.

Any of these ingredients may be added to the granola in equal quantities: Chopped dried dates, apples, pineapple, apricots, pears, mangos, raisins, dried cranberries, cherries, blueberries, chopped almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, sunflower seeds, wheat flakes, or oat bran. You also might want to try using different honeys like lavender or orange blossom. Or you may want to use maple syrup instead of honey. When trying out new additions make sure to keep a good proportion of crunchy ingredients in the final mixture.
Most of us consider breakfast the most important meal of the day. Instant oatmeal packets are a lifesaver for busy mornings, but consider making your own instant oatmeal jars. Buy oatmeal, dried fruit and nuts in bulk and make your own version of instant oatmeal. You’ll be saving money at the same time. Use cute mason jars to portion out your breakfast.

When my favorite bakery closes for the season I make my own delicious apple fritters. I use Granny Smith apples, but you may use another sweet-tart variety (Pippin, Rome Beauty, Jonagold). If you decide not to glaze your fritters then dust them with powdered sugar.
I like to make these pancakes on the weekends. If you want to quicken up the cooking process then cook the sweet potatoes a day ahead of time. Drain, mash, and keep them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use.
The dough in this recipe can be made and shaped the night before you serve them. All you need to do is put them in the oven. A delicious vanilla icing offers the finishing touch by adding just the right amount of sweetness to the just baked rolls.
I like to make these overnight oats and feel like I’m eating dessert for breakfast. Overnight oats are easy to make and it’s nice to wake up to a ready-made breakfast.
