Cinnamon Roll Dippers
Creme de la Crumb presents “an inside-out cinnamon roll which requires no yeast at all, can be made ahead and ready in 15 minutes the morning of, and you dip them in the glaze so you never have that oh shoot, I should have doubled the frosting recipe feeling in the pit of your stomach that inevitably comes with the first bite of every traditional cinnamon roll.”
In addition to tasting terrific, this no-yeast-required recipe is also really easy to make. Simply mix up your dough, cut it into strips, and coat them in a cinnamon-sugar mixture. While your Cinnamon Roll Dippers bake, prepare your rich and creamy glaze, which consists of cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon. Dipping your food has never tasted to delicious!

Mini Maple Cinnamon Apple Pancake Dippers with Apple Cider Syrup
Looking for a fun and healthy breakfast to serve your kids? These Mini Maple Cinnamon Apple Pancake Dippers with Apple Cider Syrup are a morning must — they’re chock-full of nutritious ingredients that your little ones will love. Food Done Light creates this healthy morning meal by adding “some whole wheat flour and Greek yogurt. They are loaded with delicious and healthy apples. They are even perfect to pack for lunch. You can even make a big batch and freeze them. So there is no excuse for not eating breakfast before you head out the door.”
Incorporating apples into everyday meals is a great way to ensure your kids are getting plenty of essential vitamins and minerals. Livestrong notes that apples are packed with fiber, which gives kids an energy boost and keeps them feeling full for a longer period of time. The popular fruit also contains boron, a mineral that helps harden little ones’ bones.

Easy Cinnamon French Toast Sticks
Using thick-cut bread, eggs, heavy cream, cinnamon, sugar, vanilla, and butter you can create Cinnamon French Toast Sticks, which taste even better once they’re dunked in a bowl of maple syrup. On rushed weekday mornings, you may be tempted to ditch the homemade goods and instead hit a drive through on your way to work, but Just a Taste warns that the fast food version won’t taste as good.
“So what makes these buttery batons tasty enough to steer clear of the drive-through breakfast menu? None other than a simple cinnamon-vanilla custard that lends the characteristic eggy coating. But slices of bread were so 2013. It’s about time you forget the forks and take a walk on the slender side with finger-friendly French toast sticks. All that’s missing from this breakfast party is a few fresh berry buoys and a warm maple syrup plunge pool. Dip. Dunk. Repeat.”

Mini Chocolate Chip Doughnut Pancake Dippers
Your family won’t be able to get enough of these Mini Chocolate Chip Doughnut Pancake Dippers. Lauren’s Latest explains that the bite-size pancakes “look just like doughnuts! What a concept! Take regular old pancake batter, stir in some chocolate chips, spoon into a mini doughnut pan and bake! 4 minutes in the oven and you’ve got a seriously fun breakfast that kiddies will just eat up….literally.”
If you don’t have a mini doughnut pan, feel free to use a mini-muffin tin and make dippable, bite-size muffins instead. Serve your delectable dippers with a side of syrup, and you’ve got a marvelous morning meal that no one will be able to resist.

Cinnamon Vanilla Waffle Dippers
These Cinnamon Waffle Dippers have a crisp and crunchy outside that pairs perfectly with tons of tasty toppings.

Blueberry Ricotta Pancake Dippers
If you’re looking for a fun recipe to make for breakfast-in-bed or want to prepare a kid-friendly dish that your little ones will devour, Blueberry Ricotta Pancake Dippers are just what you need. Everyday Southwest notes that you can even use a boxed pancake mix if you want to make this recipe easier.
Everyday Southwest writes, “I’ve mixed blueberries, ricotta and buttermilk pancakes together and baked them in a Madeleine pan to make little ‘dippers’ that turn your pancakes into finger food to dip in your favorite sauce. They are perfect to eat in bed or munch on while you are having brunch in the backyard. And yes, they are perfect for little fingers that make sticky, but adorable, messes with regular pancakes.” If you don’t have a Madeleine pan, feel free to use a mini-muffin tin instead.
A morning meal suited for the whole family and any occasion? Sounds like a must-make breakfast!
