But first, coffee. A morning cup of joe is a sacred ritual for many people. While I personally don’t drink coffee (I’m too sensitive to caffeine), I absolutely LOVE the taste and aroma. If I’m out at a cute coffeeshop, I’ll get a decaf latte or cappuccino to sip on. Pure bliss!

What brings coffee to the next level? Chocolate! When you add chocolate to a latte, you get a mocha latte. Chocolate goes with so many delicious flavors, but coffee certainly tops the list. (Ok, maybe it’s tied with peanut butter).

Healthier Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake (Gluten Free)

This apple cinnamon coffee cake is a better-for-you autumn treat! It’s gluten free, lower in sugar, and sure to please everyone.

Healthier apple cinnamon coffee cake - Daisybeet

I love apple based baked goods in the fall when apples are in season. There is nothing cozier than the smell of warm apples and cinnamon in the oven! Apple pie, apple crisp, apple cobbler…I’ll take them all!

This apple cinnamon coffee cake is a twist on classic coffee cake. The two are similar in their quick bread “cake” base and delicious streusel topping. But, this version is a little more unique!

Healthier apple cinnamon coffee cake - Daisybeet

First, there is lemon zest in the cake batter, which adds such a delicious and light flavor. Also, you’ll layer sliced apples underneath the cinnamon streusel topping. The apples get so soft and sweet when they bake! I used Mac apples from Yes! Apples – they came straight from the orchards in New York. This variety is perfectly sweet and tart, and great for baking.

What makes this apple cinnamon coffee cake healthier?

  • No butter. We replaced butter with applesauce and non-fat plain Greek style yogurt in this recipe. This significantly cuts back on the saturated fat content in this treat.
  • Gluten free. This recipe is perfectly safe for those with a gluten allergy or intolerance! Almond flour stands in for regular white flour. It provides more protein, healthy fats, and fiber than refined white flour. The healthy fats and fiber in almond flour prevent the sugars in your treat from being absorbed too quickly into the blood, so it is better for blood sugar levels.
  • Lower added sugar. This recipe calls for 3/4 cup of total added sugars: 1/2 cup of maple syrup in the cake, and 1/4 cup of brown sugar in the streusel topping. This is much less than the sugar content in traditional coffee cake recipes!

How to make apple cinnamon coffee cake

  • Prepare cake batter and pour into a baking pan.
  • Thinly slice apples and layer them on top of the cake batter.
  • Prepare the streusel topping and sprinkle over the apples.
  • Bake for 45 minutes – 1 hour.

A recipe round-up of 10 healthy make-ahead breakfast ideas that are perfect for people with busy schedules! Prioritize breakfast with these delicious recipes.

They don’t say breakfast is the most important meal of the day for nothing! As an RD, I am a big proponent of starting your day with a healthy breakfast. In order to optimize your breakfast, choose foods rich in fiber and protein, plus a little healthy fat, to start your day. Some healthy breakfast items include:

  • Whole grains and complex carbohydrates (fiber): oatmeal, quinoa, whole wheat bread or English muffin, sweet potatoes, fruit, high fiber cereal
  • Protein: yogurt, eggs, tofu, smoked salmon
  • Healthy fats: nuts, nut butter, avocado, cheese

Benefits of Eating Breakfast

Eating breakfast has several benefits. But, in order to reap those benefits, it’s important to eat a high quality breakfast with fiber, protein, and healthy fats.

  • Helps reduce appetite and may reduce energy intake throughout the day (1, 2)
  • Helps with weight maintenance (3)
  • Increases energy, because glycogen stores are replenished after fasting while sleeping
  • May reduce depressive mood and stress (4, 5)

Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal (Vegan, Gluten Free)

This heavenly carrot cake baked oatmeal is such a treat for a crisp fall morning! It’s full of warming spices, walnuts, and golden raisins.

Carrot cake baked oatmeal - Daisybeet

Carrot cake is definitely my all time favorite cake. I love the chewy texture and warming flavors – especially when it’s slathered in cream cheese frosting! In fact, my very first birthday cake was a carrot cake. I think that’s where my love blossomed.

This carrot cake baked oatmeal recipe is an instant hit in my house. It’s been a bit cooler in Boston this week, so this has been the coziest breakfast. It tastes great warm or cold, but I love heating it up in the morning before eating.

Carrot cake baked oatmeal - Daisybeet

How to make carrot cake baked oatmeal

You just need one bowl to mix all the ingredients before pouring it into a baking dish! This recipe could’t be easier.

  • Make a flax egg in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add almond milk, maple syrup, lemon zest, coconut oil, and apple sauce to the bowl.
  • Mix in grated carrot, oats, walnuts, raisins, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt.
  • Pour baked oatmeal batter into a baking dish.
  • Bake for 45 minutes – 1 hour.
  • Slice and serve!
Carrot cake baked oatmeal ingredients - Daisybeet

Tips for making carrot cake baked oatmeal

  • Grate carrots very finely. Use the smallest hole on your grater for this recipe. I actually used a microplane to grate my carrots.
  • Use old fashioned rolled oats. Old fashioned oats provide better structure than quick oats in baked oatmeal, without being too chewy or dense.
  • Don’t over bake. The carrots make this baked oatmeal super moist, so you don’t want to remove moisture by over baking. The edges will be only slightly brown, and the center will be slightly squishy when it is done.

Healthy Five-Minute Bircher Muesli Recipe (Gluten Free)

This Bircher muesli is a delicious make-ahead breakfast that takes just five minutes to prepare. It has fiber and protein to keep you full all morning!

Bircher Muesli

Bircher Muesli: The Original Overnight Oatmeal

Is it just me, or is overnight oatmeal the best thing since sliced bread? It tastes amazing, is filled with nourishing ingredients, and literally takes five minutes to prepare. If you’re a busy person (aka everyone these days) overnight oatmeal is the perfect grab-and-go healthy breakfast option.

Bircher Muesli is the OG Overnight Oatmeal recipe. It was developed by a Swiss physician, Maxamilian Bircher-Brenner, for his patients. The original recipe calls for grated apple, lemon juice, and raw hazelnuts, and oats soaked overnight in water.

How to Make Bircher Muesli

I put a bit of a modern twist on my version of this recipe. It includes chia seeds, yogurt, and cinnamon, while still highlighting the refreshing green apple and lemon flavors.

  • In a glass jar or Tupperware, combine oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, and shredded green apple.
Bircher Muesli Ingredients
  • Add yogurt, almond milk, maple syrup, and lemon juice, and stir everything together until combined.
Bircher Muesli Mixed
  • Cover the container, set it in the fridge overnight, and you’ve got the creamiest, dreamiest breakfast waiting for you in the morning!

Why You’ll Love this Bircher Muesli Recipe

  • It’s so easy. No cooking required! Just mix together all your ingredients and let the fridge work its magic.
  • Simple, whole food ingredients.  All you need are eight ingredients for this recipe, and you probably have most of them in your kitchen right now. This bircher muesli is sweetened with just 2 tbsp of maple syrup, so there is no refined sugar! Eating whole food ingredients make us feel good and give us lasting energy for the day.
  • Easily customizable. While the original Bircher muesli recipe calls for shredded green apples, feel free to mix up the fruit you use in your version. Fresh berries or peaches would taste amazing in the summertime!
  • Grab-and-go meal. If you have a busy morning schedule, you can still have time for a healthy breakfast by preparing this recipe the night before!
