    I needed some recipes for Mother’s Day! Since I plan to have a nice Dinner and Dessert prepared and luckily my Mom loves my healthy recipes I create for her. It’s nice when she shares the love of more health filled desserts.
    I have pilates teachers training this weekend, so I’ll miss most of the celebrating but at least I can make it home later to see her. Mom’s are the best.

  2. These all look great! And I’ve got my eye on that cookie dough latte. Oh yes, that is happening for Mother’s Day. 😉

  3. Those cookie dough lattes look awesome. I’m not a mom, but I don’t care – I’m going to make that for myself anyway.

  4. We celebrated mother’s day on sunday (with a Cinco de Mayo feast!) because I’ll be away on the real mother’s day, but I’ll still be making that cookie dough latte for myself! I think I’ll make the chocolate chip breakfast cookies, too, as an easy, travel-friendly breakfast!

    Thank you! I was just thinking, I hope CCK made a collection for Mother’s Day! : D

  6. Grace says:

    I love you so much Katie! Your my vegan inspiration and I love all your recipes!

  7. Jenni says:

    Your pictures are always so gorgeous, Katie. I already bought my mom (no, mine is the best mom ever!) a present, but I haven’t even thought about baking her something! I should get on top of this.

  8. I think these recipes are keepers for every single day of the year! 😛

  9. Ellen Quinones says:

    My 2 year old isnt old enough to shop on her own yet so all i require is the best hugs and kii. sses ever :)

  10. wow all of these recipes look so delicious!

  11. I actually crocheted my mother a pair of socks :) I think I might make her a batch of fudge though, too!

  12. eValerie says:

    That’s odd. My RSS reader isn’t picking up your most recent postings, even though when I click on the RSS icon on your website it shows the postings there.

  13. Danielle says:

    Thanks for the ideas! I’m trying to figure out what I’m going to be making for Mother’s Day!

  14. That peanut butter pie is calling my eye!

    Thanks for living a healthy lifestyle that much easier with your “indulgent” everyday treats!

  15. Hannah says:

    Once when I was younger, my little cousin gave me a rose on Mother’s Day, because his father told him he had to find a girl (he meant a mother) and give it to her.

    I’m most likely going to make one of your cookie recipes, but probably a few days before Mother’s Day, since the day of we’re going to my great grandmother’s house. We’ve got a grandmother, a great grandmother, an aunt (who is a mother), and my mother here! So many mothers!

    Thanks for this! Awesome!

  16. Eileen says:

    Love that you have multiple gluten-free options for Mother’s Day goodies. Will definitely come in handy! Thanks, Katie! Happy Mother’s Day to your mom! xo

  17. Katie says:

    This is my FIRST official mothers day! :) I’ve requested the same thing i requested for my birthday and Valentines Day – your vegan chocolate cake with the chocolate bar pie topping – to diiiiiie for, I love it! :)

  18. Great recipes! This reminds me I’d like to do a post for my mom on mother’s day. :)

  19. Nicole says:

    Last year I made my mom the five-minute carrot cake for breakfast, and she fell in love! So I’ll be doubling or tripling the recipe this year and making either mini-muffins or a big cake! I can’t wait for Mother’s Day, either, I just got home from college so I need some mommy-daughter time! 😀

  20. Amy says:

    My mom would love every single one of these! Well, maybe not the lattes or mocha cake; she’s not the greatest coffee fan… But she’d totally make up for it by eating three servings of the ultimate chocolate pie instead! We always had a well-stocked shelf in our pantry for dark chocolate growing up. She made sure there were at least six different varieties at all times!

  21. Ciera says:

    I’m going to do the black bean brownies!!! :)
    Wish there was a lemon cake recipe…;)

  22. Melanie says:

    These recipes look amazing – too many to choose from almost! Sadly my mum is in Australia and I am in the UK so we’ll only speak on the phone. I’m thinking I’ll try some healthy pancakes for Mothers Day. Perhaps I could describe how yummy they are when I’m speaking to her? 😉 Thanks for the great recipes.

  23. I don’t plan to only bake this for mother’s dat :b My friends as well as my mom think there is something wrong with me when I dish out cookies with honey and sweet berries. Me being a man that is. Last comment: Your pictures are stunning.

    Love your healthy Mother’s Day recipes! Would you like to submit your recipe to our Mother’s Day Contest?

    My family is having a Mother’s Day lunch this afternoon. I am going to bring appetizers and dessert. For dessert, I thought of buying a cake from the local bakery, but I may just try the no bake peanut butter pie. It looks very delicious and the recipe is straightforward enough. Thanks for sharing.

  26. That peanut butter pie is SCREAMING my name. Thanks for the great recipe roundup before Mother’s Day! I may have to make one (or more) of these this weekend. :-)

  27. Kelly says:

    That peach breakfast cobbler is a total win in my book, I think I’ll have to try it out for myself first :)

  28. Michelle R says:

    All of these recipe’s look excellent, but Oh My Gosh, that peanut butter pie looks awesome!
    One of my favorite breakfast recipe’s that I will be making my mother this year, is breakfast quesadillas from the blog eat, live, run. The link is

  29. Those cheesecake bites look amazing! I would so love to make those for my mother, but she lives in Indiana and I am in Texas so thats a little hard. But I may treat myself 😀
    I am also visiting from the Sweet Saturday Blog Hop I hope you can come visit me 😀

    It’s been a long-time tradition in my family to make Mom a big brunch on Mother’s Day morning. Waffles with hot maple syrup, whipped cream (or maybe cashew cream this year) & apple compote, Toast & jam, Fruit salad, Espresso, and Freshly squeezed orange juice. My brother and I wake up early every Mother’s Day morning, roll up our sleeves, and get cooking. Being the more artistic child, I would always paint a paper placemat for her and pick pink roses from the yard to place in a vase by her place.
    Now I’m 19 and my brother is 23 and we still do the same thing every Mother’s Day morning. LONG LIVE FAMILY TRADITIONS!

    Me and my daughter picked the Peanut Butter Pie and baked the perfect cake for my wife! Thanks a lot for the recipe, it was a great success for two unskilled cooks, definitely the best Mother’s Day she has ever had if we can believe what she says :)
