Sausage Potato + Egg Quiche (dairy-free, gluten free, Whole30, Paleo)

If you're anything like me, having a quick and easy, ready-made breakfast makes all the difference on busy weekday mornings as I'm trying to get everyone ready and out the door. These mini Sausage, potato + egg quiches are just the ticket! They only take a short time to prep and bake on the weekends and I can store them in the fridge to have on hand all week long. Just reheat a couple and head out the door!

Apple Cinnamon Quick Bread (dairy + gluten free)

Updated 10-27-17
This recipe has been a family favorite since I posted in originally 3 1/2 years ago. I especially love to make it when the weather starts turning crisp and it begins to feel like fall. This is the perfect warm, comforting breakfast or snack!

Dirty Chai Protein Shake (dairy + gluten free)

At the start of 2017, I set a goal to be healthier. This included exercising more, drinking more water each day, and eating healthier. Of course, I set a weight loss goal too because I really hadn't made my diet a priority in awhile. If I'm being totally honest, since my pregnancy with my littlest bug.

I was just recently talking about our healthier eating plan around here (which I followed up with a dessert post - ha!), and here is one example of our healthier breakfast choices! I've been seeing Chia Pudding recipes everywhere. They're super versatile and you can really add any flavors you like, plus mix-ins, toppings, etc.

Cranberry Orange Biscuits {gluten free + vegan}

I have a memory from my childhood of these delicious cinnamon raisin biscuits that my mom would take me to get from a fast food restaurant. They were soft, flaky, slightly salty with pops of sweet raisins, and topped with a sweet, creamy glaze.

I have always wanted to recreate those glorious biscuits but dairy- and gluten-free, of course. But I decided I would mix things up a bit and use tart, fresh cranberries instead of raisins, and add in bright orange zest for a pop. I didn't make a glaze for these, but they would be amazing with a simple powdered sugar/dairy free milk icing drizzled over the top.

Chai Spiced Zucchini Bread with Cardamom + Vanilla Bean Glaze {dairy +gluten free}

There isn't much I love more than relaxing on a cool fall morning with a steaming cup of coffee and a slice of freshly baked bread for breakfast. Whether it's pumpkin bread, banana bread, or this amazing cinnamon apple bread, I don't discriminate. I just love the slightly sweet, but mostly spicy and comforting fall flavors.

Pistachio Lime Zucchini Donuts {dairy + gluten free}

We are back to school and our old daily routines are going in full force! It's been a crazy few weeks around here getting back into the swing of things. Hopefully we'll find our way here soon and I'll stop feeling like I'm forgetting everything every single day. Gah! I'm ready for a relaxing vacation any time now.

Banana Bread {gluten free + vegan}

In the past I was never really a big fan of banana bread, probably because it traditionally contains walnuts (which I strongly dislike). My boys used to eat bananas like they were going out of style. However, they usually decide at some point that they're banana'd out and just stop eating them. Annnd, it's almost always just after I've bought a bunch for the week. I typically try and wait them out for a few days to see if they'll change their minds, but when they start to get over-ripe, I just toss them in the freezer to use later on. 

I've used our frozen, ripe banana stash for all kinds of recipes from cinnamon rolls to no-churn ice cream ("nice" cream, I suppose). I am not sure exactly at what point I realized that banana bread doesn't have to contain walnuts. But praise the Lord I did because now I love banana bread! If you are like me and just want to savor the warm, cinnamon-y, enveloping aroma and flavor of banana bread, this recipe is for you!  

(Note: I've edited this recipe from its original version to remove the eggs and added peanut butter. You could totally omit the PB if you prefer. Both ways are equally delicious.)

Easy Homemade Waffles {gluten free + vegan}

Have you heard of the phenomenon that is aquafaba? I suppose it isn't really a phenomenon, but it's a pretty sweet discovery, that I'm sure has probably been around a lot longer than I personally realize. Aquafaba is basically the starchy liquid left from a can of chickpeas or other beans, and it can be used as a replacer for egg whites. It whips up into this light and airy fluff that seems to be a perfect meringue-like texture. 

I'm in awe every time I see a new recipe created using it and have been intrigued for awhile now. I finally tried it and it is everything it's cracked up to be! All I did was pour the liquid into the bowl of my stand mixer, add a pinch of cream of tartar (not sure if this is even necessary), and turned the speed up. A few quick minutes later and I had a giant bowl of this amazing stuff! 

I wasn't sure exactly what my plans were at that point, but it was early morning so I decided to fold it into waffle batter to make the texture like it would be if you were to fold in whipped egg whites. My waffles were light and airy with a slightly crispy edge, just the way I like them. I also used Namaste Foods Raw Goods Quinoa Flour for an added protein punch. I've also used their gluten-free all purpose flour blend with spectacular results.

Breakfast options that are easy to take on the go are must-haves around here. It always seems like we are scrambling to get out the door each morning. If I can just grab something on the way out the door, it helps to make the entire morning easier on us all.

Nog French Toast Bake {dairy + gluten free}

Updated December 27, 2015

I love making Christmas a special time for my boys. We do lots of activities on Christmas Eve, including sprinkling reindeer food outside, leaving our magic key for Santa to get into the house, and our Elf on the Shelf, Teddy always leaves them a special gift. Teddy didn't show up this year though. Apparently he knew that his shenanigans would be too stressful for us with a new baby in the house or something. ;) 

In the past I've always made pancakes or coffee cake for breakfast on Christmas morning, and felt rushed to prepare and bake that early while the gift-unwrapping is occurring. A couple of years ago, I decided to make something for breakfast in advance so that I could just pop it in the oven first thing and enjoy the rest of the morning with the boys rather than standing over the stove the whole time.

Maple Pecan Granola {gluten free + vegan}

It's no secret that one of the best parts of Thanksgiving are the leftovers. There are so many unique and delicious recipe ideas out there using everything from the turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and cranberry sauce. If you are lucky enough to snag some of the leftovers, you can create delicious meals for the next few days.

Crunchy, salty and slightly sweet granola with a hint of cinnamon and maple. Perfect for layering with your favorite dairy-free yogurt for a breakfast parfait.

Baked Pumpkin Spice French Toast {gluten + dairy free}

French toast is one of our breakfast favorites around here. Usually just made by dipping slices of bread into a mixture of egg, almond milk, and cinnamon, and frying it up, then served with a drizzle of maple syrup. I love the idea of baked french toast, which typically is put together the night before and refrigerated overnight, saving you time in the morning. While it sounds nice, putting the whole thing together really only takes a couple of minutes. The main reason to make it ahead is to allow the bread more time to soak up the liquid for a more custard-like texture.

Doughnut Round-up {gluten + dairy free}

Apparently today is National Doughnut (Donut?) Day. I wish I would've known this sooner as I would have made some doughnuts for breakfast to celebrate!

But I certainly believe that every day is a good day for doughnuts, so I thought I would put several of my recipes here in one place.

Lemon Blueberry Muffins {top 8 + gluten free}

I'm loving testing out the NEW! Enjoy Life Foods boxed mixes. With simple directions and minimal ingredients to add, I can easily use them to create fun, unique recipes with no fuss.

This morning I decided to use the Muffin Mix to create some yummy, lemony, blueberry muffins. The lemon adds a nice bright flavor and the blueberries pop for a fresh summery flavor. I like to pop some fresh blueberries in the freezer overnight so they don't turn the batter blue when I use them when baking.

Blueberry Cornbread Donuts {gluten free + vegan}

Well, I finally got bored with sitting around watching TV and decided to get to work on some long overdue recipe posts. Lately, as soon as I feel a little bit of baking/cooking motivation coming on, I take advantage, create a new recipe, and shoot photos. It's the actual posting of those recipes that's been neglected after that. But...I'm going to do my best to get caught up on a few of our favorites so that I can share them with you!

Blueberry Cornbread Donuts by Making it Milk-free

These Blueberry Cornbread Donuts were a fun experiment that turned out really unique and delicious. They can definitely be made in the more traditional muffin shape, but I thought the donuts were a fun and interesting change. Plus, my boys seem to eat things better when they're shaped like junk food rather than their healthier counterparts.

Maple Bacon Donuts {dairy, egg + gluten free}

#glutenfree #dairyfree #eggfree #maple #bacon #donuts

Our kids love it when I make Mini Pancake Muffins for breakfast. They're delicious and fun. Since it is such a simple and versatile recipe, I decided to try something a little different using the same ingredients. With the slight hint of maple flavor and the soft, not-too-sweet pancake texture, I decided they needed a little addition of coffee and bacon. These are fun and sophisticated at the same time. What could be better?!

Apple Cider Glazed Donuts {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #apple #donuts #fall

I've been seeing lots of delicious looking baked donuts all over the place lately. I decided I wanted to try some and picked up a donut pan for cheap with a great coupon at Michael's. I have the Wilton brand pan that makes six donuts at a time, but this one that has 12 spots would be so much better. I may have to get it too!

Apple Cider Molasses Muffins {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #apple #cider #muffins

I've been trying to incorporate apple cider into muffin recipes for weeks now. None of them had the flavor I was hoping for. Once I made this amazing Apple Cider Molasses recipe, I knew it was perfect for muffins. I love the addition of molasses in Gingersnap Cookies and gingerbread so I knew it would make a fantastic texture for these muffins. They're perfectly soft, slightly chewy, not too sweet and so delicious while they're still warm.

Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #pumpkin #donuts

Fall has always been my favorite time of year. I love to snuggle up in jeans and a sweater with a hot cup of coffee and enjoy the crisp, cooler weather, the beautiful, brightly colored leaves, football games, and of course, anything pumpkin.
