Daniel Fast Breakfast Recipes

Today is part four in a series about the Daniel Fast.  To begin with the first post, click here.  I shared my menu with you yesterday, and for the next few days I will be sharing the accompanying recipes – and even some that are not on the menu.  Healthy eating has become a passion of mine, and I am excited to share these with you from a collection of great blogs.

Breakfast Ideas

Almond Quinoa Muffins - Daniel Fast Breakfast IdeasAlmond Quinoa Muffins - Substitute the agave syrup for unsweetened applesauce.  If you make your own applesauce it can still be sweet without added sugar.




Banana Burritos - Daniel Fast Breakfast IdeasBanana Burritos – Spread natural nut butter all over a whole wheat tortilla and fill with your choice of diced banana, strawberries, raspberries, raw oats, chia seeds, and chopped nuts.




The-perfect-healthy-breakfast-by-Amandas-ApronBreakfast Quinoa - For the fast, do not include the maple syrup.  This is a nice change up from oatmeal or cold cereal.




Broiled Grapefruit - Daniel Fast Breakfast IdeasBroiled Grapefruit – the heat caramelizes the natural sugar in this lovely fruit.  It only needs to be broiled a few moments.




Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal - Daniel Fast Breakfast IdeasCarrot Cake Baked Oatmeal – Omit the sugar from this baked goodie.  This is perfect to make on the weekend and have on hand throughout the week.




Cinnamon Applesauce from scratch | Amanda's ApronCinnamon Applesauce - Did you know it is so easy to make your own applesauce?  It is so healthy and when made with overripe apples it is very sweet.




Clean Blueberry Oat Pancakes | Amanda's ApronClean Oat-Berry Pancakes - I make a big batch of these and freeze them so I can simply pop them in the toaster while I am getting ready in the morning.  They are delicious plain, but can also be smothered in nut butter.



Crockpot Apple Pie OatmealCrockpot Apple Pie Breakfast - Use unsweetened apple juice or almond milk or rice milk.  This is convenient because it can cook overnight and be ready in the morning.




Oatmeal and BerriesBanana Berry Oatmeal - Use plain soy milk (or almond milk or rice milk.)




Clean-Eating-Sundae-Amandas-Apron-hosts-BrunchWeek-1024x680Poached Pears with Banana “Ice Cream” – Simply omit the honey from this recipe.  Choose a very ripe pear to maintain hints of sweetness to this treat.

Skinny Pear Crisp | Amanda's ApronSkinny Pear Crisp - I made a whole pan of this, intending it to be breakfast throughout the week.  My husband ate it in one day.  At least you know it is man-approved.

  3. The quinoa muffins sound delicious but a lot of sites about the Daniel Fast say that baking powder is not allowed! Can I ask if you used it/ did you substitute it? is there a substitute?!

    Thank you for your site. I am planning out our fast (we’re doing it through Christmas, challenging, I KNOW! but we are so excited to start. we begin wednesday) and your site has been such a life saver. I was so afraid I wouldn’t be able to feed us. Some of these recipes (especially ones like the blueberry pancakes!), where I can make a bunch and eat them throughout the week, makes this fast seem possible!

    Thank YOU!

    • Ariel,
      I pray your fast has been encouraging! I have not heard about baking powder not being allowed. My personal stance on issues like that is to follow your own personal convictions. As I have mentioned in another post, if I get so focused on “the rules” I lose focus on the fast. Some sources say agave is permitted, others say it is not. That is just another example of finding what works for you and your family and what will draw you closer to God, and what would be a distraction. I am not associated with any official Daniel Fast authorities, so I cannot say for sure, what exactly is or isn’t allowed when it comes to gray areas, but I just try to follow the biblical fast to the best of my ability. Hope this helps!

        • I too have heard about baking powder not being a part of the Daniel Fast. I learned about this from Susan Gregory as she recommends avoiding a leavened bread during the fast and since baking power is a leavening agent, it would not be included. Here is her food list, in case anyone is interested: http://danielfast.wordpress.com/daniel-fast-food-list/. I found the list to be very helpful but I agree with you Amanda that ultimately we don’t want to loose focus of the purpose of the fast which is to draw nearer to God.

          I think there are different ways to do the Daniel Fast as far as the food goes so as you mentioned, each person needs to decide what makes sense for themselves. Our pastor recommended giving up 2 or more foods that you really enjoy for 21 days (example: bread, cheese, desserts, meat, coffee, etc) – that’s a simple way to make prayer the focus and yet still sacrifice something that you will enjoy and will miss during the fast. Use the craving or desires as they arise, as a prompting to pray.

          God Bless and thank you again for this fabulous breakfast list! ~ Susan

          • Opps, I said, “that’s a simple way to make prayer the focus and yet still sacrifice something that you will enjoy and will miss during the fast.”

            I meant to say, “that’s a simple way to make prayer the focus and yet still sacrifice something that you do normally enjoy but will miss during the fast.” :)
