What is your favourite way to start the day? Cereal, toast, or muffin? Perhaps you are one of those people that skip breakfast altogether?
I am guilty of this myself, however, I never start my day without coffee, and perhaps an apple oatmeal muffin.
How about a breakfast banana split? Dessert for breakfast sounds like a plan to me.
Since I was a kid, breakfast just has not been my favourite meal of the day. Perhaps it’s the fact that I am not one of those people who jumps out of bed ready to take on a 10k run. I have to wake up a little more on the slow side (along with at least 2 cups of coffee).
Now, if you want to make me some Smashed Avocado on Toast, that would be awesome.
Cake for breakfast works too. This old-fashioned cinnamon coffee cake is the perfect breakfast cake.
However, you can entice me with sweets for breakfast. Baking donuts is a much healthier alternative to the classic fried variety. If you can bake muffins, you can bake donuts. I don’t know anyone that would not want a breakfast donut.
They are like a cake donut (and we all like cake). Baked oatmeal donuts are super healthy, but I have a few others that are delicious too. In fact, my grandfather wanted donuts for her birthday!!
Perfect for fall, my Pumpkin Spice Donuts make a great snack. Always a welcome on the weekend brunch menu.
Mixed Berry Scones are perfect for breakfast, brunch and dessert. Made with frozen berries, perfect for fall baking.

Since school starts next week, busy mornings are back in business. I am all about making things easy. The less stress to deal with the better. Getting things started in the right direction with a focus on nutrition makes for a healthier day.
One thing I enjoy is oatmeal. When I was a kid mom always had that bag of Quaker Oatmeal in the cupboard. I recall it being the regular oats. Since then, I have graduated my taste buds to the more nutritious old fashioned oats. If I am really in the mood for a nice hot bowl of healthy oats, I will turn to steel cut oats. These seem to elevate oats to a whole new level.
Any way you choose, eating oatmeal is a great way to start your day. Healthy baked oatmeal is one of our favourite ways to enjoy it. Have you ever tried Oatmeal Breakfast Casserole?
