From Cooking Classy

This is a Mother’s Day tradition you’ll want to stick to… These Belgian waffles are big, fluffy and delicious, perfect for special occasions like this. The best part is that, other than buttermilk, they don’t really require much other than your general store cupboard ingredients, so you can whip them up whenever you have the time or inclination.

These easy little baked eggs can be prepped ahead of time and just popped into the oven when you’re ready, which is perfect for a Mother’s Day breakfast.

If you want your Mother’s Day traditions to be healthy, but just as delicious, then this is the recipe to try. These berry breakfast parfaits use cashew yogurt, which is dairy free, and all the ingredients are raw, meaning that this is a guilt free delight on all fronts. Yum!

From Fun in First

This is the sweetest Mother’s Day tradition to start, as the answers will keep changing from year to year. Kids give the answer to things like, “This always makes my mom laugh…”, “My mom is really good at this…” etc. Jodi used this idea in her classroom for her Mother’s Day celebration, and she said that the moms loved it.

8. Vegan Cheesecake with Fruit Roses

From Veg Spinz

Here’s another tasty but healthy recipe that would definitely work as a Mother’s Day tradition. These vegan cheesecakes use silken tofu, tofu cream cheese and soy milk instead of regular dairy products, and the fruit roses are just too gorgeous. They’d actually work great as decorations on all kinds of desserts, don’t you think?

9. Mother’s Day Café for Grandma

From Grey Luster Girl

This is another great way to spoil Grandma this Mother’s Day. Push the boat out with formal invitations (with a little embellishment from the kids, of course), and why not use the tea party printables from number 5?

I love this idea for breakfast in a box, because you can tailor it to suit likes and dislikes, and put together the perfect breakfast for the mom in your life. It’s easy enough for kids to put together on Mother’s Day morning, and would make a great, mess free breakfast in bed!
