Dessert for breakfast! 13 ways to celebrate Mother’s Day | TapGenes
Select Page

We’ve all lusted first thing in the morning after the chocolate cake sitting on the counter, trying every which way we can to oh-so-subtly convince ourselves it would be an acceptable breakfast. Or that last night’s batch of chocolate chip cookies might as well be a protein bar. Dessert for breakfast sounds better than breakfast for dinner…and that’s tough to top.

We already condone donuts for breakfast, and if they’ve got chocolate frosting, you may as well be eating a piece of chocolate cake! Some would even argue that by having your big calorie blast early in the day, you’ve got all day to work it back off.

As brunch becomes more than just a weekend meal (but borderline religion for some), we hope you’ll enjoy a few of these dessert-inspired indulgences at the breakfast table. Because … why the heck not?

Simple ways to turn your morning meal into a treat

Turning ordinary breakfast foods into something seemingly off the dessert menu can be accomplished in a few ways.

Add a teaspoon or two of cocoa powder to your standard bowl of microwave oatmeal in the morning and a swirl of peanut butter. Boom! Now you’re practically eating a peanut butter cup.

Or, you could brown the butter before using it to cook pancakes or French toast. You can even pile waffles high with fresh strawberries and a swirl of whipped cream for something that feels as good to eat as strawberry shortcake.

Whether it’s dinner, breakfast or dessert… don’t bind your eating to a clock. Especially when it’s a special occasion, something as simple as dessert for breakfast can really make an event extraordinary.
