Loaded Breakfast Board

I've been wanting to make a beautiful loaded breakfast board for awhile and finally got a chance to make one! Loaded with whole-grain apple cinnamon coffee cake, hard boiled eggs, SnapDragon apples, bacon, waffles, and lots of fruit. I knew that my kids would love this style of breakfast as my entire family is huge breakfast eaters.

SnapDragon Apples

Have you heard of SnapDragon apples? They're grown in New York by 152 family farmers and are described as spicy sweet with a hint of vanilla. They're so delicious! We go through about 8 pounds of apples per week and love snacking on apples and these SnapDragon apples make a great addition to our apple lineup. They're super crunchy and great to snack on. I used SnapDragon apples on the breakfast board sliced up and also in the whole-grain apple cinnamon coffee cake.

They're considered the perfect snacking apple, are great in salads or paired with rich cheeses. They were developed by Dr. Susan Brown from Cornell University and came from the seeds of honeycrisp apples. Find out where you can buy SnapDragon apples here and follow them on Instagram.

Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Whole-Grain Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Yes! This coffee cake is so delicious. I always bake with white whole-grain flour to add fiber to the recipe. It bakes just like regular white flour in my opinion and is more nutritious. This coffee cake is loaded with finely chopped SnapDragon apples, lots of cinnamon and has less sugar than your typical coffee cake. I topped it with a cinnamon streusel topping because, well, it's delicious!

Breakfast Board Ingredients

You can put whatever you want on your breakfast board! Use what you have on hand, what your family loves, etc.

-Hard boiled eggs- the easiest for grab and go eggs on the board. Top with everything bagel seasoning if you like or hot sauce.

-SnapDragon Apples

-Whole-Grain Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

-Bacon- bacon is easy to grab on this board so I went with that but sausage would work well too. 

-Mini bagels- so easy since they're already made and you just need to put them on the board. I went with cinnamon raisin flavor.

-Lots of fruit- I recommend adding a lot of fruit to your breakfast board because that is what is going to give your board a lot of color and make it look the prettiest. Some awesome options are SnapDragon apples, berries, kiwi, oranges, blood oranges, pineapple, bananas and grapes. Truly, use what you have on hand.

Prep Your Board Ahead of Time

When my family wakes up in the morning, we are pretty much ready to eat! I recommend making the coffee cake the night before you're going to enjoy it and boiling and peeling the eggs to save time. That way, this board will come together in about 15 minutes in the morning. 

Breakfast Charcuterie Board

Party Breakfast Board

I think that this breakfast board would be awesome for Easter morning or if we are thinking awhile from now, Christmas morning. It would be great for having guests over in the morning. Serve with lots and lots of coffee! You could make a few of these boards for a larger gathering. How fun would that be!
