These protein-packed and delicious breakfast ideas without eggs are perfect for those with allergies or for anyone in need of vegan-friendly meals to start their day off right.
Sure, eggs are an easy and healthy meal option, and they’re sure to fill you up until lunch.
But when you’re not in the mood for something savory or when eggs just won’t do the trick, these breakfast ideas without eggs are sure to keep you satisfied.
Whip up a savory hash or go for something super healthy like a green smoothie.
The eggless options are endless.
Best Eggless Breakfast ideas
1. Green Breakfast Smoothie
My go-to egg-free breakfast item is almost always a smoothie. But if you want something really healthy, you just can’t beat this mean green smoothie.
It’s a powerhouse of nutrients and can be ready at the snap of your fingers.
Spinach is packed with vitamins and potassium, and chia seeds are a gold mine of energy.
There’s also some banana and pineapple in the mix to sweeten it up. If you’re not the banana smoothie type, you can easily swap that out for another fruit.
2. Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
Peanut butter smoothies taste indulgent but are still a healthier choice when your morning sweet tooth strikes.
Other than the obvious, this creamy smoothie is full of fiber, thanks to the flaxseeds. Use almond milk, and it will turn out extra creamy.
If you only have vanilla almond milk, I suggest skipping the vanilla extract; otherwise, you may overdo it.
3. Easy Overnight Oats
Overnight oats are a lifesaver!
Before you go to bed, fill up a jar with some milk and oats, add whatever extra toppings you like, then come morning, your grab-and-go breakfast is waiting.
As for the fixings, this recipe comes with four equally delicious options: peanut butter and jelly, apple pie, almond joy, and banana-Nutella.
There are so many ways to jazz them up that this breakfast never gets old.
4. Roasted Plum Compote
Dazzle your tastebuds with this sweet delight.
Roasting plums makes them extra sweet and sticky. To enhance their flavor, vanilla extract and cinnamon are perfect choices.
There are a few ways you can serve this, but to get more nutrients and texture, Greek yogurt and granola make it a well-balanced meal.
5. Chocolate Banana Oatmeal with Caramelized Bananas (Gluten-Free, Vegan + No Sugar Added)
A sweet breakfast without all the sugar may sound too good to be true. Yet, this breakfast is overflowing with so much decadence that you don’t need it.
A warm bowl of cozy chocolate oats is piled to the heavens with dark chocolate, ripe bananas, and maple syrup.
Top it off with a sprinkle of chia seeds to add more nutrients and give it a nice crunch.
6. Berry Oatmeal Bowl (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Paleo, Refined Sugar-Free)
Need some more healthy and easy oatmeal breakfast ideas? This two-way berry bowl should spark some creativity.
Cook the oatmeal with berries and a natural sweetener, or make a separate berry compote if you want it more concentrated.
7. Chocolate Oatmeal
Oatmeal is never dull when you add chocolate to the breakfast equation. And this one is rich in chocolatey sweetness.
I love that this recipe doesn’t use any extra refined sugar – just a kiss of maple syrup is all it takes.
And it’s not just egg-free, either. This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan.
8. Simple Healthy Chilaquiles
This healthy take on chilaquiles is the garden-fresh breakfast you can feel good eating.
The bounty of veggies in this dish spares no expense. Toasted tortilla chips have layers of salsa, bell pepper, poblano, avocado, and more.
For protein, skip refried beans and choose something healthier like black beans.
If you’re doing a vegetarian version, pile on the queso fresco. And don’t forget the hot sauce!
9. Pineapple Coconut Baked Oatmeal
A tropical paradise awaits with these yummy breakfast bars.
This recipe is so easy, don’t be surprised if you find yourself preparing it for the week again and again. Simply mix, pour, and bake.
While coconut and pineapple are the main themes, I think you could swap them out with any fruit you’re in the mood for.
And yes, the recipe does call for two eggs. So, you’ll need to swap those out for 1/2 cup of mashed bananas.
Not only will that add to the fruity sweetness, but you’ll get a nice boost of nutrients too.
10. Sunflower Seed Granola and Rhubarb Breakfast Parfait
Parfaits aren’t just for dessert; you can have them for breakfast too.
The combination of sweet rhubarb and homemade granola is an extra special touch. I like to layer it all between plain Greek yogurt, but go with whatever flavor you want.
To make it vegan, use coconut yogurt or whipped coconut cream.
11. Eggless Waffles
Want waffles minus the eggs? No problem.
These waffles turn out perfectly crisp, and there’s not a single egg in the batter. What it does have is some buttermilk and a good amount of butter.
It may not be dairy-free, but it’s a fantastic choice for something eggless and tasty.
12. Eggless Pancakes
If pancakes are more your jam, here’s an eggless version for you.
The batter for this recipe is very similar to the eggless waffles recipe, except you get a high stack of fluffy flapjacks when it’s all done.
Now, the question is: are you going to pour on the syrup or load up on savory toppings?
13. Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole
Tater tot casserole is a fun breakfast idea the whole family will enjoy.
These crunchy spuds get fixed up with scrambled tofu, spinach, and a heaping of cheese.
The prep time is minimal, and you can make it in advance. Win-win!
14. Avocado Toast
Trendy or not, no avocado lover can deny the beauty of avocado toast.
All you need are two simple ingredients, and you get a tasty breakfast in return. You can also add extra toppings in any variation you like.
I tend to go with roasted tomatoes and red onion, but there are so many other versions.
This quick breakfast is a top-notch choice for meals on the run, when camping, and more.
15. Tofu Scramble Burrito Bowl
It never fails to amaze me how you can make tofu taste like pretty much anything. In this case, scrambled eggs.
Nutritional yeast adds more flavor to the “eggs,” while turmeric gives it the golden glow. Finally, seal the deal with potatoes, avocado, and salsa.
This is an excellent recipe for those who crave eggs but are trying to cut down on them. Or for those who can’t have them at all.
16. Easy Drop Biscuits
Looking for a leisurely camping breakfast? Cook these drop biscuits in the great outdoors.
Mix all your ingredients in a bowl, form the biscuits, then plop them into a cast-iron skillet. Cook it over the fire, and you’ll have fluffy, warm biscuits everyone will love.
Even when you’re not at camp, these enticing biscuits are simple enough to make at home.
17. Delicious Crispy Hash Browns
These homemade hash browns are far superior to anything you’ll get from the frozen aisle. They’re crispy and tender with a little hint of garlic.
While you may be accustomed to eating these with eggs, there are other ways around that.
Top it with some salsa, avocado, and sour cream. Or caramelize some onions in bacon grease and add bacon bits.
18. Homemade Breakfast Sausage
Remember those easy biscuits I mentioned? These breakfast sausage patties will go great with them.
They feature ground pork, bacon, and a heaping of spices. There’s also a sweet hint of maple syrup in the mix to go with all the wonderfully savory flavors.
19. Chickpea Omelette
Chickpeas are a dietary staple for vegans because they’re crazy versatile. However, when it comes to breakfast, they’re best for making omelets.
Chickpea powder turns into a fluffy breakfast omelet in no time, and when you add veggies into the mix and fry it up, I bet you won’t miss the eggs one bit.
If you’re feeling ravished, pair this with those crispy hash browns from above.
20. Smoked Salmon and Avocado Pizza
This recipe had me at smoked salmon. Add avocado and pizza to the mix, and I’m running to the kitchen.
I love the bite of arugula and the layer of cream cheese. Of course, it’s not pizza without mozzarella!
This may be a bit too involved for the workweek, but Sunday brunch is just around the corner.
21. Easy Cheesy Vegan Grits
Grits are a Southern staple that’s naturally egg-free. And this one is a fine choice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Nutritional yeast and almond milk are vital in making grits taste creamy and cheesy, minus the dairy.
22. Smoked Sausage and Potato Hash
This sausage and potato hash is a hearty breakfast that’s so full of flavor you’ll forget all about the eggs.
It’s savory, smoky, and garlicky with some bell peppers added in for a fresh bite.
If you like hot sauce as much as I do, douse it with your favorite brand.
23. Healthy Blueberry Crumble
Vegan and keto dieters with a hankering for blueberries will go crazy for this recipe.
It’s like dessert for breakfast but healthier because it’s naturally sweetened. And there’s no refined white flour because this one uses almond and coconut flour instead.
24. Keto Coconut Flour Oatmeal
Another scrumptious keto-friendly way to make an eggless breakfast is with this recipe.
It’s super creamy like Cream of Wheat, except there’s no wheat here. Actually, there are no oats either.
This is all about coconut flour and flaxseeds to give it a thick porridge consistency. But like oatmeal, you can add any toppings you like.
25. Keto Breakfast Hash
This is the ultimate eggless hash if you ask me. Each savory bite is full of bacon, tender turnips, and brussels sprouts too.
Seriously, this hash has it all, and there’s not an egg in sight.
