Healthy Mother’s Day Recipes

I’d say my mother is the most amazing woman in the world; but many of you might argue and say that your mother holds the title of world’s best mom.

This proves there’s quite a large number of wonderful mothers around.

So here are over 40 reader favorite healthy Mother’s Day recipes to treat them right, from breakfast – preferably served in bed – to dessert, and everything in between!

I’ve included in the post some of my own mother’s favorite recipes from the blog, such as the pancakes, chocolate pudding, and healthy banana bread.

And I’ve also included recipes that are especially easy and fun for kids to make, such as the chocolate truffles and sugar cookies.

    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 🙂

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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

  5. 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! 🙂

  6. Lisa says

    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.

  7. jodye @ chocolate and chou fleur says

    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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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! 😀

  10. Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen says

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

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. Stephen Kjeldsen says

    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.

  14. Tracie says

    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.

  15. Daniela says

    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!

  16. Lorne Marr says

    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 🙂

  17. Em says

    Love this round up, so many delicious looking options. I just posted my own mother’s day recipe – a nostalgic cinnamon sugar toast that my mom used to make for me (healthified a bit).

  18. Jeff says

    That butterfinger video blocked the page and the recipe I found on the google image route. It won’t close

  19. Maddie says

    My sisters and I decided to make your coffee cake in a mug for our mother. Although the first one failed (which is why an older sibling should always check behind a younger one ;), the second attempt she found most delicious!
    One of her favorite things has always been angel food cake. I’m wondering if that is even possible to health-ify but I’d be interested to bake anything you might com up with.
    Thank you so much for these recipes, Katie!

      Hmmm she doesn’t yet, but we will definitely have to look into making some!

  20. Cassie Thuvan Tran says

    All of these recipes look so lovely! The sweet potato patties, creamy pasta, and healthy breakfast recipes (ESPECIALLY your pancakes and cinnamon roll!) would be adored by my family and myself, but then again, everything here would be the same case!

  21. Lindsey | HANGING WITH THE HUANGS says

    That 1 minute chocolate mug cake is one of my favorite recipes from your site!

  22. mary says

    Well I’m a mom of four and if any of my girls made me any of these I’d be one happy mama! Gorgeous recipes:)

  23. Q says

    Hi Katie,
    I absolutely LOVE your recipes, so I really don’t mind that I now own this ebook, but I bought your Hello Breakfast ebook specifically for The Ultimate Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread recipe, since every description says that recipe is in the ebook. However, the recipe is not in the book. There is definitely plenty to enjoy, but I also want specifically that one recipe. Did you use a different picture or name in the ebook?

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hi, sorry about that! You definitely are entitled to that recipe! I’m emailing you right now, so let me know if you don’t see it within the next few minutes.
