Need some inspiration for your holiday brunch? Try one of these spectacular quinoa breakfast recipes!
In our house, Easter brunch is kind of tradition. We all chip in and make our favorite thing, so we end up having a ginormous table filled with fantastic breakfast items. And while I know that brunch tends to mean a blend of breakfast and lunch, in my family, we always go the breakfast route. Always.
So today, I'm pulling together my twelve favorite quinoa breakfast recipes that are completely brunch worthy. And I totally wish that I could be eating every single one of these recipes right now. Maybe not all at once, but I would completely content with one of each of these on my plate. It would be the most spectacular brunch ever.
This is the ultimate brunch item because not only are they waffles, but they're savory waffles with glorious toppings, making them perfect for either breakfast or lunch. Plus, you've got to have eggs at Easter, right?
This is my absolute favorite french toast recipe! It is crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, with faint hints of coconut, warm cinnamon swirled throughout, the sweet caramel notes of pure maple syrup and bursts of fresh berries, a plate of this vegan french toast will make everything in the world seem right.
Easter means Spring is finally here and I can't resist adding some fruity flavors to the brunch table! It's full of flavor, simple to make and that maple lime dressing? Pure heaven!
And brunch without waffles is no brunch at all! If savory waffles aren't your thing I also have the perfect sweet waffle recipe for you. These ultra fabulous strawberry + banana quinoa waffles are perfect for Easter brunch!
My other favorite savory breakfast is this breakfast bowl. This breakfast bowl is packed full of nutritional goodies, my friends, for the ultimate breakfast win!
Make a big batch of this breakfast bowl and share with everyone! I think this butternut squash is going to make even squash lovers become converts!
What would breakfast be without some pancakes? This is my absolute favorite recipe; it's loaded with flavor and the best way to get your carrot cake in this Easter!
These vegan banana chocolate donuts are so fluffy! They are even made entirely in the blender for a super easy cleanup which makes them perfect for holidays when you are cooking up a feast.
If you have a person in your family who isn't the biggest fan of baked goods, pasteries or eggs, this recipe is for them. A breakfast parfait could not be easier to make (it literally takes 5 minutes to prepare), but looks elegant, refined and tastes spectacular.
These morning glory bars are hard to beat. They're packed with nutritional ingredients and so easy to whip up. They are the perfect grab-and-go treat, and who wouldn't want one of these on their plate at Easter?
Who doesn't love a quick sweet bread at brunch. Whether you're waiting around while the rest of the food is prepared (hello…bread basket!), or just want a slice of something sweet on the side of your plate, this banana bread is it. And since we're finally reaching springtime weather, this recipe will be sure to put a smile on all your guests' faces.
Coffee cake is the sweet version of quiche. Well not literally, but it's a dish that you can make ahead of time and will serve a crowd. What I love about this particular recipe is that fabulous crunch topping, which, instead of using butter and brown sugar, it full of crispy brown rice cereal and coconut sugar. A healthy, yet indulgent treat.
Happy brunching to you, and I hope this list gave you inspiration for the holiday ahead!
