Why wait until dinner to treat that special someone? With these Valentine’s Day breakfast ideas, you can spoil your loved ones from the minute they open their eyes.
It doesn’t matter who it may be – your spouse, kids, fiancé, or the whole family – why not start their day with a fun, love-filled, and delicious Valentine-themed breakfast?
Between the pink pancakes, heart-shaped breakfast cookies, and adorable hand pies, you won’t have trouble finding the perfect recipe.
Whether you prefer sweet or savory, these Valentine’s Day breakfast ideas are here to bring the love.
Shortbread cookies aren’t something you’d want to serve for breakfast every day, but they’re perfect for a special occasion like Valentine’s Day.
And they’re so easy to make, too!
You’ll whip these up with only seven ingredients, and they’ll have the rich, buttery flavor of shortbread along with some pink, white, and red sprinkles.
What more could you ask of a Valentine’s Day cookie recipe?
Pancakes are a breakfast favorite, and that shouldn’t have to change just because it’s Valentine’s Day.
So, make your favorite recipe if you have one, and add three drops of red food coloring to the batter.
Doing so turns delicious pancakes into delicious pink pancakes.
Make them even more festive by adding a vibrant white (and sweet) drizzle made from milk and powdered sugar.
If you want something a little more special than just pink-colored pancakes, these red velvet pancakes are an excellent choice.
They look more like dessert than breakfast, right?
And if the decadent red velvet pancakes aren’t enough, the sweet and tangy cream cheese icing should do the trick.
Of course, some people prefer cinnamon rolls to pancakes.
If that sounds like your special someone, these red velvet cinnamon rolls may be the better breakfast option.
They feature the warm, rich flavor of red velvet cake topped with a sticky cream cheese frosting that’s so good you’ll be licking your fingers clean after every bite.
Here’s another fun, heart-shaped cookie option for Valentine’s Day. Make it instead if your loved ones prefer soft and chewy oatmeal cookies to shortbread.
Plus, this one is super fun because it’s a giant oatmeal cookie. So you can easily feed the whole family with just one.
I don’t usually say OMG, but OMG!
I don’t know where strawberries and cream French toast has been all my life, but I’m so glad I finally found it.
You’ll make brioche-based French toast in the usual way (eggs, milk, flour, butter, and vanilla/almond extract).
Then, you’ll top it with a heavy cream-based sauce and sugary sweet strawberry sauce. It’s way over the top and totally indulgent, but it’s heavenly.
Make this for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, and you’ll get more love than you can handle.
Or make it for a “treat yo self” day because you’re so worth it!
Not everything needs to be pink, red, or heart-shaped to be the ideal Valentine’s treat.
Just showing someone you thought of them and did something special is often enough.
With that in mind, these easy cinnamon roll pancakes are a genuinely decadent dessert… er… breakfast for your loved one’s special day.
Better still, you’ll only need three ingredients to make them.
If you want to look like you put in a lot of effort but don’t want to do a lot of work, just buy some canned cinnamon rolls and sprinkles.
That’s all you’ll need to make these delicious, beautiful, heart-shaped cinnamon rolls.
All it takes is a little creativity while rolling them out and topping each one with pink and red sprinkles.
Voila! A heartfelt (and super simple) Valentine’s Day breakfast treat.
These bite-sized pancake stacks are just plain fun!
Each one features a scrumptious stack of tiny pink or red pancakes with a heart-shaped strawberry on top.
If you want to go for cute and yummy, you can’t beat these.
This pink bread is delightfully tart and tangy, super soft, and unbelievably moist. It tastes (and looks) so good that you’ll want to make it a regular part of your routine.
If you want to keep it from being overly sweet, you can leave off the cherry-almond glaze. It’s delectable, though, so I highly recommend it.
French toast is always a treat, but it’s even better when you stuff it with fresh strawberries, rich Nutella, heavy whipping cream, and powdered sugar.
Whether you go all out and make it heart-shaped or not, this is one less-than-30-minute breakfast option your partner is sure to love.
French toast casserole is another way to enjoy berry-filled French toast on Valentine’s Day. It’s easy to make, too.
All you’ll need is a loaf pan, French baguette, eggs, cream cheese, milk, strawberries, blueberries, and maple syrup.
It’s sweet, fruity, and surprisingly filling. You probably shouldn’t eat it too often, though, especially if you’re trying to watch out for carbs.
Who needs Krispy Kreme when you can whip up vanilla cake donuts in less than 30 minutes at home?
These donuts are soft, sugary, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. And you probably have everything you need to make them in your kitchen right now.
Again, donuts for breakfast probably isn’t something you should do every day, but they’re a terrific choice for treating yourself or your loved ones now and then.
Chocolate for breakfast – what’s more Valentine’s Day than that?
These pancakes are light, fluffy, and supremely chocolatey. They require fewer than ten ingredients, and you can have a half dozen or more ready to eat in less than 15 minutes.
Just because it’s Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you have to go over the top with sweet and sugar-filled breakfasts.
Even a simple meal of toast and eggs can be Valentine-friendly if you do it right.
In this case, you’ll need a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut a heart from each slice of bread. Then, fill the heart-shaped hole with an egg and bake the toast for about 15 minutes.
Simple, healthy, and festive.
You’ll use the same heart-shaped cutout principle for these homemade pop tarts.
Make hearts in the pie crust and fill them with strawberries.
Did I mention you’ll fill each pastry with strawberry jelly and Nutella? Mmmm.
Whether you’re serving them for breakfast, brunch, or dessert, fruit-filled hand pies are always a special treat.
With this recipe, you can whip up over a dozen in less than an hour with five simple ingredients: prepared pastry pie dough, strawberry pie filling, lemon zest, an egg, and turbinado sugar.
The crust is buttery and warm; the filling is sweetly tart; the turbinado sugar adds a delightfully sweet and sparkly topping.
These look great and taste even better, heart-shaped or not.
This pretty-in-pink parfait contains everything your sweetheart loves about breakfast – sweet and tangy strawberry Greek yogurt, fresh strawberries and bananas, granola, and white chocolate.
Add a teaspoon of pink or red sprinkles to complete the Valentine’s Day effect, and you’re all set.
It’s a relatively healthy, 5-minute breakfast that’s perfect for eating on the go.
This keto-friendly breakfast is low on sugar and high on gorgeous presentation.
It takes a little longer to pull together than others on the list, but it’ll ultimately WOW your partner.
You’ll start with a bed of spinach greens and fresh raspberries. Then, you’ll add the heart-shaped omelets and heart-shaped Canadian bacon.
Finish the plate off with strips of bacon curled and shaped to look like roses for a gorgeous breakfast platter that looks like something from the cover of a magazine.
Total net carbs: 1 gram. Total amount of gratitude, awe, and excitement from your significant other upon seeing it: Immeasurable.
Any day that starts with chocolate waffles is good, especially if you top those waffles with fresh strawberries, whipped cream, and chocolate syrup.
And these are so good; I have a feeling they’ll make an appearance even after Cupid has left the building.
If your Valentine prefers to start their day with something bright, zesty, and borderline tart, lemon French toast is the ideal breakfast treat.
You’ll make the French toast from croissants, which is an interesting (and tasty) way to do it.
You’ll stuff it with cream cheese and lemon zest and top it with strawberries for an extra-sweet kick.
These cherry lime scones are the perfect balance of sweet and tart, and the zesty pink glaze makes them even more flavorful.
They have the classic crunchy scone texture and are, of course, heart-shaped. Pair them with a cup of hot tea or a mug of coffee for a relaxed start to the day.
If I wasn’t positive that it would eventually kill me, I could live entirely on crepes.
These are especially tasty because you’ll make them with ice cream, Nutella, and fresh fruit. The recipe calls for bananas and strawberries, but you can use whatever fruit you like.
You can also go wild on the ice cream selection. Stick to plain vanilla or pick something fruity, decadent, or both.
Did you ever enjoy cinnamon sugar donuts as a child?
That’s precisely what these are, but you’ll make them in muffin tins instead of shaping and deep-frying them.
You’ll still get the fantastic flavor and the unique cinnamon and sugar texture that’s unlike anything else, but they take way less time and effort to make.
And because you’ll bake instead of frying them, they’re a bit healthier, too.
25. Fluffy Omelet
I know I haven’t added a ton of savory options to this list, but here’s another one for those of you who are trying to avoid a ton of sugar and carbs on Valentine’s Day.
Fluffy omelets are soft and light, have almost no carbs and are full of robust, earthy, and tangy ingredients.
They aren’t hard to make, either. You’ll need only eggs, corn, butter, salt, pepper, goat cheese, and chives. You can have it on the table in 35 minutes.
Heart-shaped breakfast pizza combines pizza dough, sauce, mozzarella, eggs, and fresh basil.
You can also add sausage, bacon, and fresh veggies if you want something more filling.
However your loved one enjoys their breakfast pizza is precisely how you should make it. In fact, you can use any breakfast pizza recipe you like for this one.
Just be sure to shape it using the instructions in the recipe. The heart shape is what makes it festive, after all.
You could do a fruit or dessert pizza the same way, too!
These breakfast scones have a lot more going on than the cherry lime recipe above, and they’re much sweeter.
But if that’s what you’re looking for, these are ideal.
Their crunchy texture still makes them the perfect complement to hot tea or coffee, and additionally, these have an insane amount of flavor.
Between the raspberries, cinnamon, sugar, orange zest, vanilla and almond extracts, and chocolate chunks, these pretty much have it all.
And the pink glaze adds even more!
Though they take a little time to make, these are a genuine delight.
Here’s another utterly over-the-top spread that’s sure to make your Valentine feel loved and appreciated.
The great thing is that it doesn’t take a ton of work, despite how much stuff it includes. For the most part, charcuterie boards are just about arranging things.
You may have to do a little cooking – toasting the bread, making the eggs and pancakes, etc. – but mostly, it’s creatively cutting and arranging things to look festive and appetizing.
French toast roll-ups are like the beautiful, delicious offspring of French toast and churros. They have a crispy, cinnamon-sugar coating and a wonderful tender filling.
The insides contain cream cheese, fresh fruit, pie fillings, Nutella, chocolate sauce, or anything else you want to stuff in there.
They’re phenomenal and only take about 15 minutes to make.
Now, let’s end this delectable, decadent list with one final French toast recipe.
This one features thick, buttery slices of brioche bread, a cup of macadamia nuts, and plenty of raw honey.
You’ll also add cinnamon and two cups of crushed bran corn flakes to give it a crispier crust.
Add more sliced strawberries or other berries for toppings if you want to go all out.
Whipped cream and chocolate sauce wouldn’t hurt, either
