This are super yummy and a little healthier because they are baked. You do need a donut pan for this recipe.
1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a donut pan well with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate bowl, mix together the buttermilk, sugar, egg, butter, and vanilla until well combined.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Spoon the batter into the donut cavities making sure to only fill them about 2/3 – 3/4 of the way full.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the donut comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes in the pan. Remove donuts from the pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
I tried something very similar from Trader Joe’s, they were amazing, and then I looked at the packaging and knew I could come up with something just as tasty and not be left with a bunch of plastic wrap and cardboard. These are super quick to whip up and freeze beautifully. Just pop them in the oven for 15 min at 350, and let sit for 1 minutes after.
- 6 eggs
- 1 head of cauliflower, chopped fine in the food processor
- 1 c shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 400. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake wrappers. Spray with olive oil lightly.
Mix Cauliflower, shredded cheese and eggs into a mixing bowl and let it sit for a few minutes.
Scoop about 1/4 c of the mixture into each muffin tin, filling just below the top.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Edges with be golden brown.
Let sit for 5 minutes, pop out of muffin tin with a spoon. If freezing, let cool completely.
This is a great way to start your day!
- 1/2 c nut milk
- 1 orange, peeled

- This is straight from Skinny Girl – no changes cos her recipes are always perfect! They taste great and are so easy! I saw the recipe on FB at 6 am and made them for breakfast the same morning. The recipe makes 4 small bagels. I sliced it in half, toasted it and topped it with vegan cream cheese and a slice of tomato! Hubby had never had a savory bagel (what!?!? Don’t even get me started) and he enjoyed them! I used the Everything Bagel Mix from TJ’s. I did lazy out and toss everything in the food processor. You can visit skinnytaste.com for details on how to do it by hand.
- 1 c flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 c Greek yogurt (Do NOT substitute with regular yogurt), drain off any liquid
- 1 egg white, beaten
- optional toppings: everything bagel seasoning, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic flakes, dried onion flakes
Preheat oven to 350. Like a pan with parchment and spray with oil. Or heat your air fryer, and spray the air fryer basket with oil. Beat the egg white and set aside.
Add dry ingredients to food processor and pulse to combine. Add yogurt and pulse to incorporate, then pulse about 20 times until it forms a tight ball.
Lightly flour your work surface and form the dough into a ball. Divide into 4 pieces and roll into ropes and then form into a bagel shape.
Brush with egg white and add your topping of choice.
Bake or air fry for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
The fridge was basically bare so this is what we came up with for breakfast.
- 4 eggs poached
- 1 avocado, sliced thin
- Jack cheese, grated fine
- 4 pieces of bacon
- 1 English muffin
- Dijon or truffle Dijon
Toast the muffins, spread a little Dijon on and top with avocado, bacon, cheese and a poached egg.
I had this recipe for the first time on vacation – I love having garlic bread with eggs for breakfast! Here is my version on it.
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 c milk
2 cloves garlic minced
4 pieces of thick sliced bread
Preheat a girdle over medium high heat and butter generously.
Whisk together milk, 2 eggs and garlic. Cut a hole using a shot glass into the bread. Dip in egg mixture and place on the griddle. Cook until golden on one side, flip and add your egg. Cook until almost done, then flip and cook for 1 minute. Add more butter to the griddle as needed.
Serves 2 – 4.
You can also use prosciutto for this quick weeknight meal. Serve with a salad and you are set!
Butter or oil as needed
1 tomato, sliced
2 slices mortadella or prosciutto
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Asiago cheese, grated
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Smear a bit of butter or oil in ramekin; line with tomato and prosciutto. Break egg into ramekin, then put on a baking sheet.
Bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until egg is set and white has solidified. Because the cup retains heat, egg will continue to cook after you remove it from the oven. Sprinkle with asiago, salt and pepper and serve.
Serves 1 – 2.
This is what happens when there are too many overripe bananas in our house. It is adapted from a recipe I found on Food52.

This is a quick and easy whole 30 breakfast – just make sure you eat an extra serving of veggie at lunch or dinner. This is quite tasty and would also work well as a pancake.
1 ripe banana, mashed
1/2 apples, chopped
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp almond butter
2 tbsp unsweetened coocnut flakes
Coconut oil or ghee for cooking
2 tbsp almond
Whisk together eggs, banana, apple and cinnamon.
Heat ghee or oil in a small pan over medium heat, add egg mixture and cook until cook through, either like an omelette or scramble.
Too with coconut flakes and almond butter.
These aren’t quite whole30 since they frown of food that is legal but looks illegal. I’m sick of eggs, so I don’t care.
1/2 c coconut flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 c almond butter
1/2 c chopped pineapple
1/3 c coconut milk
Combine dry ingredients. Combine wet ingredients. Combine all and whisk until smooth.
Heat a griddle over medium heat, when hot pour a 1/4 C batter onto griddle and cook 3 – 4 minutes per side. Let the first side cook a little longer so it’s easier to flip. These are very delicate.
Makes about 12 pancakes.
