Peanut Butter Oatmeal


I know peanut butter and oatmeal sounds a little funny together, but it is delicious.  This oatmeal is a great way to start the day, you gets lots of protein and it is super filling.  This was almost like having dessert for breakfast, so it was easy to get the kids to eat all of their oatmeal.

Strawberry Pancake Recipe

This weekend my kids asked for strawberry pancakes, which I have never had before.  They were actually really good, so will be making them again.  I always use the same basic pancake recipe and then just add in whatever fruit I feel like that day.  My family’s favorite  are apple cinnamon.  Of course the kids love chocolate chip pancakes, but those are only for special days like birthdays.  This pancake recipe makes enough for 4, but I usually double it so we have some leftover for a quick breakfast during the week.



Hope everyone enjoys the Vegan Pancake Recipe!!!

Sausage and Cheddar Breakfast Frittata

breakfast frittata

This recipe was part of our brunch on Christmas day.  This is a breakfast frittata version, but frittatas are good for a quick lunch or dinner as well.  Just put in whatever veggies you have on hand to replace the sausage.  I make it with peas or spinach a lot.  This is a very versatile frittata recipe.





 Hope you enjoy this vegan breakfast frittata

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I have been going a little crazy with pumpkin this week and have been putting it in everything.  I made this one morning for me and it tasted so good the kids were asking for it the next day.  We eat oatmeal a lot for breakfast and this was a nice change.  It is great on a chilly morning.

Pumpkin Pancakes


I make pancakes almost every Saturday morning and pumpkin pancakes are our favorite for fall.  It is almost like having pumpkin pie for breakfast.  They are great with maple syrup, but my kids love them drizzled with honey.  I do use some white flour in this recipe, but you could use all whole wheat.  The pancakes just don’t come out as fluffy with all ww flour, but they will still be good.

Biscuits and Gravy


Biscuits and Gravy has to be one of my favorite foods.  It was the one thing that I was upset about giving up when I became vegan, but I have learned to make it with vegan ingredients.  Any day that starts with biscuits and gravy for breakfast is good.  This really is not very healthy though, so I rarely make it.  Make this on a day when you are planning to do some exercise because it is not low fat.
