Our Best Halloween Breakfast Recipes

We’d be lying if we said that we didn’t get at least a little bit excited about Halloween. A full day of spellbinding sweets and creepy-cute eats followed by costumes and candy—what’s not to love?! That’s why we can’t help but get into the spirit early in the day. Sure, we plan a special Halloween dinner and set out some family-friendly drinks and themed snacks and appetizers for everyone to munch on before going door-to-door, but the festivities truly start with breakfast. Frighteningly fun flapjacks, ghastly green smoothie bowls and haunted hand pies: we’ve got all the ideas you need for a fun Halloween breakfast. And, as much we love each and every one of them, we can’t keep our eyes off these yummy mummies. They’re packed with fresh boo-berries (sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves) and topped with a tangy cream cheese frosting. They’re the delicious grab-and-go option that won’t make you late for the Halloween parade!

Monster Smoothie Bowls

Don’t be wary — this colorful breakfast is more cute than scary! Little monsters will love creating faces for these wholesome smoothie bowls, which get their fluorescent color from a mix of spinach, banana and apple. Use chopped nuts, fruits and other fun toppings to make the monsters on top!

Black Cocoa Cake Doughnuts

These fudgy black cocoa cake doughnuts are sure to impress. Black cocoa powder is an unsweetened Dutch processed cocoa powder that’s both rich and bitter — and it gives these treats their suitably creepy color. We balanced out the dark notes with a sweet confectioners’ sugar glaze (also made with black cocoa). A shower of festive sprinkles adds crunch and visual appeal.

Bloody Berry Fruit Salad

Instead of a simple syrup, this fruit salad uses raspberry jam to coat and flavor the mixed fruits. It has just enough natural tartness to keep the fruit salad fresh. For the creepiest fruit salad, let it sit for a few hours and the lychees will continue to absorb the ruby glaze.
