Maple Pear Scones

We are in the middle of pear season, so it is the perfect time to use up those ripe pears in baked goods!  These scones are simple, but so good and ready in under an hour.  They happen to be vegan as well, since they are made with coconut instead of butter, milk and eggs.  They make the perfect weekend morning treat and a great addition to a brunch spread, or to enjoy with some tea or coffee!

Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles

If you are looking for something delicious to make for brunch on Mother’s day, these lemon poppy seed waffles would be perfect!  They happen to be gluten free and vegan but they are just as delicious as traditional waffles, and the lemon poppy seed flavor is perfect for spring!  If you don’t wish to make them gluten free, you can swap in whole wheat pastry flour 1:1 for the GF flour.  Also, if you wanted plain belgian waffles, simply leave out the lemon and poppy seeds.  These are so good served with fresh berries!

Southwest Tofu Scramble

If you are trying to eat plant based for the new year, a tofu scramble is a great alternative to eggs!  It is still packed with protein, but contains no cholesterol unlike eggs.  This is really easy to make, and although this one is flavored with southwest veggies, feel free to switch the veggies up according to what you have on hand or prefer!

Vegan Pumpkin French Toast Casserole

A chilly Saturday morning deserves something comforting and delicious for breakfast.  This pumpkin french toast casserole is easy to make, and so good!  Traditional french toast contains eggs and dairy but this one is completely plant based!  The next time you have some leftover canned pumpkin on hand, give this a try!

These muffins are the perfect weekend baking project!  They are easy to make, healthier than traditional muffins, and really delicious, especially warm from the oven! If you would like to make them gluten free, just use Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free Baking Flour in place of the whole wheat pastry flour!

Blackberry Basil Ginger Smoothie

A smoothie is the perfect breakfast to enjoy on a hot summer day when you don’t have a lot of extra time in the morning. This one is packed with fresh flavors of this season, with sweet blackberries, fresh basil, and anti-inflammatory ginger which gives it a little kick!  I add in some protein powder to make it a bit more substantial, but you can leave it out if you want it to be more of a snack than a meal. This is really delicious and good for you as well!

Key Lime Pie Smoothie

Sometimes you end up with a lot of over ripe bananas on your counter. You could make banana bread, but I like to freeze them for use in smoothies later!  Like these key lime pie smoothies!  They are easy to make, and they taste like key lime pie, but are much healthier!  I even snuck some veggies into this one, but you won’t even notice!  These are perfect for when the weather gets warmer!

Vegan GF Almond Waffles

Why not make Mom some waffle on Mother’s Day?  These vegan gluten free waffles are easy to make if you have a waffle maker, and so good!  They are light and fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside with a vanilla almond flavor!  I topped them off with a raspberry sauce, but of course they would be delicious with coconut whipped cream, maple syrup or chocolate chips as well!  Feel free to make them your own!

Vegan Lemon Pancakes

Pancakes are the perfect weekend morning treat!  These lemon pancakes are really easy to make, and they contain no animal products, but you would never know by tasting them.  They are made with whole wheat flour, so a bit healthier than traditional pancakes, and they are so good topped off with fresh berries and coconut whipped cream!
