Mother’s Day is fast approaching and it’s time to think about what you’re going to do to make your Mom feel special because she most definitely deserves it. Mom’s help raise us to be the amazing people we are today, they put up with our antics as we grew up, and they still worry about us even when we’re grown adults that are able to take care of ourselves. We love Mom’s so let’s show them we care with Mother’s Day brunch recipes she’ll never forget. 

To help you out, I’ve compiled some yummy brunch recipes to get your wheels turning on what vegan recipes you want to whip up for Mom this year. Don’t forget, Mother’s Day is May 10th!
