Pie is one of my favorite foods, and dagnabit, I want to eat it for breakfast!
But… before I give you these ten ways to eat pie for breakfast, I have to admit I have a bit of an ulterior motive behind this post. As well as sharing my love of pie-inspired breakfasts, I was also hoping (pretty-please-with-a-cherry-on-top) that you wouldn’t mind taking a short reader survey.
The survey is just so I can get an idea about what recipes you’d like to see, what you aren’t interested in, and so forth.
To be honest, I’ve wanted to hold a reader survey for a while, but kept putting it off. Why? I was worried no one would take the survey and it would be a massive fail. But hey, you don’t know if you don’t try, right?
[The survey has now closed]
Now, let’s get to what you’re actually here for – 10 Ways to Eat Pie for Breakfast!
1. Apple Pie Crepes
Cinnamon-spiked crepes with an apple pie filling. Since there’s no butter involved, these aren’t as indulgent as you may think. Here’s the recipe!
And just in case you on’t feel like making crepes, try this: Apple Filling (from the crepes post) + Granola + Yogurt. It’s like a bowl of apple pie.
2. Chocolate Cream Pie Overnight Oats
Chocolate cream pie, people! Except there’s no cream, because we are still talking about breakfast, after all. Here’s the recipe!
If you’re after something more fruity, these Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oats are basically a breakfast version of Strawberry Cream Pie.
3. Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
I love pumpkin. I love oatmeal. And I’ve been known to eat this for lunch on cold days. The recipe is here.
If you’re thinking it’s too hot to eat oatmeal, maybe some Pumpkin Spice Banana Ice Cream is more appropriate.
4. Apple Pie Granola
Adding some fall-spiced granola to anything will increase the pie-factor. I love eating this granola with yogurt and a chopped apple. Here’s the recipe!
5. Cherry Pie Baked Oatmeal
This is one for those of you lucky enough to have gone cherry picking, and filled your kitchen with loads and loads of cherries!
There’s even a ‘crust’ on this baked oatmeal. The recipe is here.
6. Individual Apple and Rhubarb Crisps
To me, crisps (or crumbles) are the fuss-free versions of pies. There’s no need to roll out pastry, and you get a crunchy topping! Find the recipe here.
I also posted a recipe for Peach and Rhubarb Crisps a while back.
7. Sweet Potato Oatmeal Casserole
This is basically a sweet potato pie with a crunchy topping. Oh, and marshmallows. Here’s the recipe!
8. Apple Pie Oatmeal / Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal
While pumpkin pie is my favorite, apple pie is a close second. So not surprisingly, I can’t help but make tons of recipes dedicated to apple pie! The baked oatmeal (on the right) also has a ‘crust’.
And if you’re looking for something with both apples and cherries, try Apple and Cherry Strudel Oatmeal.
9. Pumpkin Pie Parfaits
Pie in a glass! If you’d like a bowl of creamy pumpkin pie, then this is for you.
I used some crumbled cookies a ‘crust’ feel, but granola would work too. Here’s the recipe!
10. Salted Chocolate Pecan Pie Oatmeal
It’s chocolate pecan pie, but it’s also oatmeal. And there’s a hidden vegetable (it’s pumpkin). So this is definitely in the ‘good to have for breakfast’ category.
Plus, it’s salted! The recipe is here.
Bonus: Boston Cream Pie Baked Oatmeal
A Boston Cream Pie isn’t really a pie at all. It’s a cake wanting to hang out with the pies. But this baked oatmeal still deserved an honorary place on this list. Here’s the recipe for this non-pie.
Uh, Second Bonus: Pumpkin Pie!
Okay, an actual slice of pie isn’t really a breakfast food. But I felt this list would be incomplete without this pumpkin pie. Which I posted in August last year, because that’s how nuts I am about pumpkin pie. Here’s the recipe!
Hooray for pie!
