Dessert for Breakfast or Breakfast for Dessert

Posted on September 19, 2012

I might be an oatmeal girl most days of the week, but pancakes and other sweet treats will always have a special place in my heart.  Often, when we go on vacation, we will try to balance breakfast with an egg white omelet and a side of donuts, pancakes or waffles.  We all deserve to start the day with a treat every now and again!  Inspired by my love of all things dessert, I even started a Pinterest board for breakfasts that taste like dessert.  Since I’m sure I’m not alone, I’ve rounded up almost 30 sweet treats for breakfast and included them below:
