This year is flying by WAY too quickly, if you ask me. How is it already time for Mother’s Day? Our little guy is growing up too fast!!

If you feel inclined to make something special for your mom this weekend, here are a few healthy and delicious brunch recipes that are sure to leave her feeling loved and nourished.

1. Almond Butter Pancakes

These grain-free pancakes are the most authentic gluten-free alternative I’ve tasted! This nutrient-dense recipe will keep you satisfied for hours, and no one will guess that they are free of flour and refined sugar.

2. Almond Milk Coffee Creamer

3. Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

I have yet to meet someone who hasn’t fallen in love these muffins after the first bite! Fresh raspberries and dark chocolate are a match made in heaven, but feel free to use any other fresh fruit you have on hand, including blueberries or strawberries.

4. Cheesy Spaghetti Squash Casserole

This is a take on my own mother’s classic cheesy hashbrown casserole, featuring low-carb spaghetti squash instead of frozen potatoes. This new version has become a family favorite!

5. Mushroom & Gruyere Pie

This baked egg dish is a grain-free alternative to quiche, featuring meaty mushrooms and rich gruyere cheese. It reminds me of a vegetarian Quiche Lorraine!

6. Kale, Pear & Feta Salad

This refreshing salad is the perfect addition to any meal! Feel free to use any baby greens you have on hand, including kale, chard, or spinach, for a delightfully tender and nutrient-rich base.

Wishing all of the moms and moms-to-be out there a very happy Mother’s Day!

Love all your suggestions!

My mom also makes a hashbrown casserole at every family gathering and I love it…just not that 50,000 calories it contains. Those tater tots are just loaded in calories, can’t do it! I’m eager to try your healthified version!

Also, the almond milk for coffee sounds awesome. I just realized that I’m drinking over 300 calories in heavy cream every day. Yikes! I think I’d rather eat my calories than drink them!

All of these recipes look delicious Megan – especially the almond butter pancakes ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope you enjoy a lovely Mother’s Day Weekend!


I love being reminded of great recipes! I have so many bookmarked, & can never make enough of the wonderful recipes that I stow away! So, even though I had my 2 favorites of this tasty menu, the Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins & Mushroom & Gruyere Pie, already saved, I had yet to make them! I look forward to making them, soon! I’m so sure I’ll love them, as they look so yummy & the recipes of yours that I have made (quite a few, so far) are some of my most favorite to make!


Almond creamer! Genius – i have been finding plain almond milk too thin for coffee so will give this a whirl – Enjoy your first official mothers day!


Happy 1st Mother’s Day, Megan!
