These Christmas breakfast treats offer some sweet ways to celebrate Christmas morning. I hope you’ll find some new favorite breakfast ideas among these favorites!
Sweet Christmas Breakfast Treats
Christmas morning is the perfect time for a special breakfast treat. If there’s ever a time to eschew your usual bowl of oatmeal or other breakfast routine, this is it! Whether you opt for a make-ahead baked French toast or something as simple as a batch of muffins, it’s a lovely tradition for a special day.
I’m so happy to share these sweet breakfast treats with you! These are some of my favorite recipes for the holiday season. With cinnamon rolls, muffins, biscuits, and even cake (!!!), there’s sure to be something to tempt you.
Other Items to Keep On-Hand for Holiday Breakfasts and Brunches
If you’re hosting a Christmas brunch or having overnight guests during the holidays, you’ll need some basics, too. Be sure you’ve got plenty of juice, coffee, tea, or any other drink your guests might like.
In addition to serving a sweet treat on Christmas day, it’s also nice to offer other foods like fresh fruit. Bananas, apples, berries, and melon are always welcome. A bit of yogurt is nice along with the fruit, with granola, or even on its own.
Take advantage of your local bakery and pick up some croissants and bagels for your guests, too. Don’t forget the jam, butter, and cream cheese!
If you like to plan ahead, bake a bunch of different muffins and quick breads to stash in the freezer. Then just thaw them overnight to create a sweet buffet!
My recipes focus on baking, but don’t forget about traditional breakfast classics like bacon and eggs, too! There are so many ways to make a perfect breakfast for the holidays!
Make It Special
Even if you’re serving something as simple as cinnamon rolls or waffles, you can make it extra special. Get out that wedding china you never use, set the table with holiday linens, and gather everyone to share a meal together!
I hope you’ll add something homemade to your Christmas breakfast this year. Do you have Christmas breakfast baking traditions? I’d love to hear about them in the comments below.
Happy baking and happy holidays!

Sweet Christmas Breakfast Ideas
From muffins to cinnamon rolls, you're sure to find the perfect sweet breakfast treats for Christmas morning!
Love cinnamon rolls but don't love the work it takes to make them? Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls simplify things by using a 3-ingredient biscuit dough. It's a great shortcut to get homemade cinnamon rolls on your breakfast table!
For a Christmas breakfast you can prep in advance, try this Baked Praline French Toast. You can assemble it the day before you and then bake it fresh for breakfast. That sweet, nutty flavor is SO good!
This amazingly delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cake with its cinnamon and chocolate swirl has been one of my go-to brunch treats for years. It has such wonderful flavor! Make it a day or two in advance and store it in an airtight container to serve on Christmas day.
It's unbelievable how quickly you can have this simple Dutch Baby Pancake in the oven. For a quick and easy Christmas breakfast for a small group, it's pretty tough to beat. Serve with maple syrup or your favorite preserves.
With a double dose of chocolate, these Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins are sure to be a hit with your chocolate loving crowd. They'll keep for a few days, too, so you can continue enjoying them for breakfast or a snack.
Caramel, pecans, and cinnamon turn biscuits into these rich, decadent Sticky Biscuits. Be sure to grab one of these for yourself immediately, because they definitely won't last long once you serve them!
These fruit-studded Currant Oat Scones are a breeze to make with ingredients you're likely to have on-hand most any time. They're not overly sweet, which is a nice break during the usual excess of the holidays.
Chocolate gravy is not commonly known, but you'll be telling the whole world about it once you've had these biscuits topped with that chocolate indulgence. That gravy will go with most any kind of biscuit, but I especially like it with this cream cheese variety.
It's been years since I first shared these simple Cinnamon Bun Scones with you, and they remain a reader favorite and a personal favorite. They give you the cinnamon roll experience without the fuss of making homemade cinnamon rolls. This is just the kind of treat that becomes a Christmas breakfast tradition!

Mmm, I tried the cinnamon bun scones for Christmas morning, and my kids could not get enough! Definitely better than store bought! Thank you so much for sharing! Enjoy the rest of your holidays!
I’m so glad they were a hit for you, Marie! They’ve been a favorite of mine for a long, long time.
Chocolate gravy! That’s been a staple in my family since I was born & I turned 71 yesterday. We mostly have it on Christmas morning now, served over hot biscuits with butter. Yum.
It’s really just the best. Happy belated birthday and merry Christmas!
