Babble is hosting a contest until Friday 1/27/12 they’re calling “My Family’s Favorite Breakfast Recipe Contest”

and my Baked Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts with Vanilla Peanut Butter Glaze are in the final 8.

If you could comment on that post saying something to the effect of your “favorite recipe was Averie’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts”, I’d love it.

If something else shown there is your favorite, vote for that.

The contest got me thinking about some other breakfast recipes:

Microwave Blueberry Banana Oat Cakes (Vegan, GF)  Wrap in plastic and toss in your bag for a snack anytime.

Baked Vanilla Donuts with Vanilla Glaze – They taste very similar to Krispy Kreme Donuts, but they’re baked, not fried.  Make as muffins if you don’t have a donut pan.

Strong coffee with cream and sugar.  A breakfast of champions, indeed.

Baileys non-alcoholic creamer in coffee tastes almost identical to alcoholic Baileys in coffee, in case you don’t want to get sloshed at 7am with your java.

Also see the Breakfast Recipes page which includes breads, cakes, donuts, and muffin recipes.

And anything in the Dessert Recipes section will make a great breakfast, but of course.

Do you eat breakfast?  Do you think it’s the most important meal of the day?

I am not usually all that hungry when I first wake up so breakfast is more of a whatever meal for me.  Plus whether it’s yoga or a run, the thought of eating something and then trying to work out doesn’t sound appealing and doesn’t work for me having the food sloshing around.  I eat after I’m done working out; that’s when I’m hungry and ready to dive in.

What’s your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?

I’m going out on a limb here and going to guess oatmeal, smoothies, cold cereal, toast or bagels, and coffee are going to top the list.
