14 Spooky Halloween Breakfast Recipes
Why wait ’til the sun goes down and the costumes go on to start with the Halloween festivities? Kick things off at breakfast with these 14 spooky recipes. Whether you want to keep things savory or sweet, salubrious or sinful, we have you covered! (And really, when else can you start the day with candy guilt-free?)
4. Vampire Pumpkin Spice Donuts: Admittedly, our reaction to these treats was more along the lines of “awww” than “ahhhh!” It probably has something to do with all that True Blood we’ve watched over the years… (via Erica’s Sweet Tooth)
5. Pumpkin Pancakes With Cinnamon Syrup (Gluten-Free): Simply add ground cinnamon and a few drops of black food color to agave nectar for a spooky alternative to maple syrup. (via Simply Gluten-Free)
6. Count Chocula Donuts: Get this: These donuts may be one of the only times that soggy cereal is actually considered a good thing. Stirred into the donut batter along with cereal milk, the tiny Draculas dot the batter with bursts of chocolatey goodness. (via The Baking Robot)
7. Candy Corn Waffles: For the most realistic candy corn appearance, you’ll definitely want to use a round waffle iron. Feel free to swap in your favorite weekend waffle recipe. The technique is the same regardless. (via She Knows)
Who else is planning on starting their Halloween celebration first thing in the morning? Share your plans for the holiday below!
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
