Serve up a festive Valentine’s breakfast to celebrate the day with these easy and healthy ideas. I have my best recipes for chocolate muffins, pancakes, and smoothies, plus all things strawberry—Strawberry Milk, Strawberry Drinkable Yogurt, and more. So sweet.
Valentine’s Day Breakfast
Marking a holiday with a special morning meal is an easy way to make the day more fun and these ideas are perfect for your little Valentines! I’ve included my favorite breakfast recipes with chocolate, and also pink ones that feature lots of strawberries.
There’s quite a range here—from muffins and pancakes, to smoothies, yogurt, and French Toast—so pick your favorites and what you think your kids might enjoy most.
These recipes (like all of my recipes) are meant to be nutritious meals for little kids that anyone of any age will enjoy eating. They all are lower in sugars, as that’s how I prefer to cook, but taste great.
And methods and ingredients are streamlined as much as possible so they work with your real, busy life. (You may also like my Valentine’s Day snacks.)

Fluffy Chocolate Muffins
Chocolate Protein Muffins
These healthy muffins taste like brownies and are super moist and flavorful. They also happen to have lots of protein and veggies blended right into the mix! They’re great for breakfast and also snack.
Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins
Moist tender Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins that taste as good as store bought, but have a little extra nutrition? Sign. Me. Up. These muffins are seriously delicious and are a must-make if you have fans of Little Bites in your house!
Peanut Butter Muffins
You can’t go wrong with peanut butter and these are a perfect breakfast—you could even add diced strawberries. Serve them with milk or a smoothie (or your coffee!) with a side of fruit and call it love.

Favorite Yogurt Pancakes
These pancakes are fluffy and really versatile—you can pick one flavor to make for the whole batch or add in a few pieces to each pancake as you go to make a few different flavors. That can be a great option if some in your family love banana pancakes and others prefer chocolate chip.

Baked French Toast
Since becoming a mom, I’ve looked for ways to streamline cooking of some of our favorite foods to reduce the amount of time I have to stand at the stove and tend food. Baking French toast, rather than doing one or two pieces at at time on the stove top, is a genius option for making the process of making breakfast just a little bit easier.
French Toast Casserole
This method for baking a whole batch of French Toast in the oven is truly the best—you can pop the sheet pan in and go do other things—and come back to a whole pan of french toast, ready at the same time! It’s fast, flavorful, and delivers perfectly tender Oven-Baked French Toast, every time.
Strawberry Overnight Oats

If your kids love those expensive bottles of drinkable yogurt at the grocery store or you’re looking for a super simple (and super yummy) smoothie recipe, you have to try this one. This Strawberry Smoothie recipe with yogurt has just 3 ingredients and can even be made ahead!
Learn how to make the BEST homemade strawberry milk with simple ingredients and very low added sugar. Add a simple side of toast or a waffle on the side. It’s a perfectly pink color for a Valentine’s breakfast.
