Discover these sweet breakfast recipes that are better than anything you’ll find in a grocery store.
If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it should also be the most delicious meal of the day, right?
But buying sweet breakfast items at the store means getting a processed breakfast full of high fructose corn syrup.
So why not make some of your favorites at home instead? Plus, isn’t everything just better when it’s homemade?
There is nothing like a good cup of coffee in the morning.
A lot of coffees sold these days in coffee shops have a ton of extra sugar added.
Plus, the price of a daily coffee can add up quickly. Making a delicious coffee at home isn’t as hard as you may think.
1 — Easy Whipped Coffee Recipe: Dalgona Coffee
This whipped coffee (also known as Dalgona coffee) is great for any season since it can be served up hot to keep you warm or on ice to keep you cool. The best part is that you probably already have all of the ingredients in your kitchen.
Whipped coffee is way easier to make than you might think.
Simply whip together equal parts of instant coffee, boiling water, and sugar until they become light and fluffy (like meringue but without being thick like meringue).
Lay the whipped mixture on top of a glass of cold or steamed milk, and boom! Whipped coffee!
Not only will it impress your friends with its cool appearance, but it also tastes as delicious as it looks!
2 — Copycat Iced White Chocolate Mocha Recipe
Making a white chocolate mocha yourself at home sounds like it could be quite a lot of work and might require appliances that you simply don’t have.
Don’t be fooled. It’s a lot easier than you think and requires ingredients that you probably already have!
You only need white chocolate syrup, milk (use whole for extra creaminess), ice, and espresso. Don’t forget to top it with whipped cream, too!
Because this recipe is sweetened with white chocolate syrup and you’re making it at home, you can play around with the recipe if you want it sweeter with more or less sweet with less syrup.
The same idea goes for caffeine in the espresso – use one espresso shot instead of two to lessen the coffee taste or caffeine in the drink.
3 — Cold Brew Cereal Milk Iced Coffee Recipe
Coffee is good in the morning. Cereal is good in the morning. Why not combine them to be great in the morning?
To be clear, you won’t be drinking cereal – just the cereal milk.
Begin by making a coffee – shocking, I know.
While the coffee is brewing, get a handful of your favorite cereal (sugar cereal is best) and let it sit in a bowl of milk for a few minutes – let it get soggy.
Use a strainer to separate the cereal-infused milk from the grainy cereal.
Pour the now brewed coffee over ice and then add the milk to the coffee, and voila!
Your favorite cereal is now infused with your coffee. Add some whipped cream and sweetener to taste.

4 — Easy Sourdough French Toast Recipe
French toast is a classic breakfast food and is soooo easy to customize – especially if you have a sweet tooth.
This recipe, in particular, uses up stale, older sourdough and french bread that you have lying around the kitchen. Although, it’s also fine to let bread lay out overnight to become stale too.
Although this recipe doesn’t call for too many sweet toppings, it’s easy to add fruit, butter, whipped cream, different syrup, and compotes.
5 — Puff Pastry Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
Cinnamon rolls – another classic that is very hard to go wrong with. Delicious and soft to bite into rolls with a vanilla icing glaze.
This recipe gives instructions on how to home make the puff pastry, but if you don’t have time, buying them from a store is fine, too.
That said, they only take 30 minutes to make and need six ingredients (including the icing).
There are lots of ways to customize this to your liking, as well, by topping it with nuts, changing up the icing flavor, or simply adding more icing to quench that sweet tooth.
6 — Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Whipped Mocha Mascarpone Recipe

Just because these are hearts in the recipe doesn’t mean that they only go for Valentine’s day.
Morph them into different shapes for different holidays to celebrate.

So it’s technically a breakfast item, right?
You’re bound to have a great start to your day with this chai crepe cake which is layered crepes with a mascarpone creme filling.
Plus, it’s possibly the easiest sweet breakfast recipe to assemble here.
Place a crepe on the plate, layer with creme, put a crepe on top, layer with creme… so on and so forth.
Just because it’s the most important meal of the day doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with it. These recipes combine some favorite recipes with alcohol for an extra great breakfast.
11 — Boozy Cereal Milk Egg Cream Recipe
Swap out mimosas this Saturday morning for a boozy egg cream. You get your alcohol and cereal all in one sweet, sweet package!
Egg cream doesn’t have eggs, oddly enough, so it’s safe for those who are allergic to eggs.
It actually has flavored syrup, soda water for bubbles and fizz, and whole milk or cream for creaminess. This combination makes for a fizzy texture.
Begin by making the cereal milk/cream, which takes days (in this case) for extra flavor.
When the cream is ready, add it to a mixture of vodka and simple syrup and stir well.
Top that off with soda water which should create bubbles and begin to fizz over the glass.
Last but not least, sprinkle some cereal on top for taste and decoration!
Egg creams are so easy to customize because there is no one correct flavored simple syrup. Use your favorites like chocolate or lavender.
They are easy to make though (so check out this brown sugar simple syrup recipe). In this case, cereal flavored milk.
12 — Injectable Donut Holes
Donuts are probably the first thing everyone thinks when it comes to wanting a quick and easy to please sweet breakfast recipe!
It doesn’t get much better than combining donuts and booze into one delicious package.
This recipe can be done in two ways – buying donut holes ready-made at a store or making the donut holes at home.
Regardless of which road you take, the donuts will be filled with boozy sauce/filling.
Take the clear pipettes and fill them with some of the sauce/fillings. Done! Easy as pie… or donuts.
These are great for customizing for different holidays with sprinkles such as green for Saint Patrick’s Day or Earth Day, orange and black for Halloween, or red and pink for Valentine’s Day.
