It’s no secret that I love breakfast foods, I mean come on who doesn’t love brunch?! But lately I’ve been trying to swap out some of my sugary French toast and waffles for healthier alternatives. All while finding recipes that are still quick and easy! Here are some recipes that I found on Pinterest recently and have been loving. Let me know how you like them if you try them out!
