25 Easy Dairy-Free Breakfast Recipes

Lactose intolerance is no joke, which is why these dairy-free breakfast recipes are such a game-changer. 

Because breakfast is hard enough without worrying about upset tummies. And since almost 50% of Americans are dairy intolerant, chances are you’ll need a few of these meals at some point.

Not to mention all the “diets” floating around with dairy restrictions in place.

Luckily, as far as dairy-free breakfast recipes go, these are the best of the best. So, whether you want a totally vegan breakfast or something loaded with bacon, we’ve got you covered.

1. 3-Ingredient Bacon & Egg Breakfast Muffins

These three-ingredient bacon and egg breakfast muffins are paleo, keto, low-carb, and Whole30 compliant. Not to mention they’re also grain, dairy, sugar, and gluten-free. 

I know! Crazy, right?

Beyond that, though, they’re just plain delicious! With nothing more than bacon, eggs, and green onions, it’s hard for them not to be.

2. Veggie Breakfast Sandwich

Hardee’s sold us on the idea that a breakfast sandwich needs to be loaded with meat, eggs, and cheese.

But this veggie breakfast sandwich is just as tasty and filling as any Hardee’s biscuit.

With an egg, hot sauce, and a whole slew of fresh veggies, this breakfast sandwich has a ton of flavor. It’s also vegetarian-friendly and high in protein.

3. Vegan Sausage

While I admit that making vegan sausages from scratch is a lot more work than buying a box from the freezer, it’s also much yummier.

Frozen veggie sausages can never match the level of spice, flavor, and awesomeness that you can get from making your own. Even the appearance and texture are more meat-like! 

4. Vegan Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal

If you’re looking for something a bit more comforting and sweet, give this vegan apple and cinnamon-baked oatmeal a try. 

It’s a great fall recipe because it features apples, maple syrup, walnuts, and all the best warming spices.

That said, you can make and enjoy this any time of year.

5. Easy Vegan Tofu Scramble

You’ll need less than 15 minutes to pull together this vegan tofu scramble, and it requires only nine ingredients – six of which are spices. 

Add some fresh veggies and vegan breakfast meat with it if you like, but for the scramble, all you’ll need is tofu, oil, nutritional yeast, and a bunch of spices.

It doesn’t get much simpler.

6. Gluten-Free Breakfast Power Bowls

This quick, 14-minute breakfast bowl may be gluten-free, but it’s full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to give you a big boost of energy. 

It’s also highly customizable. Choose different fruits, berries, and toppings to make it taste precisely how you want.

It’s fruity, nutty, sweet, and deliciously filling.

7. Sausage Egg Casserole with Veggies

This fluffy, chunky breakfast casserole features plenty of fresh veggies, herbs, and juicy sausage.

It’s high in protein but has only five net carbs per serving, making it perfect for those on keto diets.

It takes a bit of time to make, but you can prepare it the night before and even bake it if you want. It tastes just as fabulous reheated the next day. 

8. Salmon and Eggs Breakfast with Avocado and Alfalfa {Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free}

Try this salmon and eggs dish if you need something quick but full of protein.

It takes just over 15 minutes to prepare and cook, has 13 grams of protein, and is low carb to boot.

Plus, it’s smoked salmon. It doesn’t get much better than that!

9. Brussels Sprout & Bacon Hash with Eggs

Eating Brussels sprouts for breakfast may seem strange, but there’s a lot more to this quick hash than just sprouts. 

You’ll also add onions, bacon, vegetable stock, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, pepper, parsley, and chili flakes. 

Together, the ingredients create a fresh, earthy, slightly spicy flavor that’s insanely good.

10. Dairy-Free French Toast Casserole

French toast casserole is a decadent and delicious treat whether you serve it for breakfast or brunch.

And this dairy-free version tastes just as good as the original. 

It has the warm, spiced flavor of cinnamon and maple syrup and the tart tanginess of blueberries. When you first bite into it, there’s a slight crunchiness, but the center is chewy and tender.

Best of all, you can make it the night before and save yourself some time the next day.

11. 2-Ingredient Bagels

The recipe for these two-ingredient bagels actually includes five ingredients, but only the first two are required. 

All you really need is self-rising flour and dairy-free Greek yogurt.

From there, you can choose to add the egg wash and seeds or keep them plain. Either way, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

12. The Best Vegan Crepes (Chickpea Crepes)

Chickpea crepes aren’t as thin and sweet as traditional crepes, but if you need a dairy and egg-free option, these are hard to beat. 

You’ll make them with only eight ingredients, and they’re vegan-friendly and full of flavor. You can adjust your toppings to make them sweet or savory as you prefer.

13. The Best Whole Wheat Waffles

I wasn’t sure I’d like them, but whole wheat waffles are surprisingly good.

They’re easy to make, too, requiring only 15 minutes and eight ingredients. 

Crispy around the edges but fluffy and soft in the center, the bold cinnamon flavor masks any bitterness from the whole wheat flour. 

Top them with berries, maple syrup, or non-dairy whipped cream for an extra indulgent treat.

14. Raw Banana Cashew Yogurt

If you’re really in a hurry but don’t want to leave the house on an empty stomach, whip up this five-minute banana cashew yogurt. 

It’s creamy, fruity, and nutty, and it’ll satisfy your sweet tooth without being overly sugary or heavy. And being vegan, dairy, gluten, and egg-free, it’s pretty healthy, too.

15. The Yummiest Vegan Chocolate Chip Pancakes

These fluffy, chocolate-infused pancakes are simply divine.

I’m not sure I know anyone who wouldn’t appreciate them, regardless of whether they’re vegan or not. 

They’re dairy and egg-free, use only eight ingredients, and take just 20 minutes to make.

Best of all, they have the same pillowy soft texture of “regular” pancakes and twice the flavor.

16. Healthy Sweet Potato Pancakes

If you prefer sweet potatoes and cinnamon to chocolate chips, these sweet potato pancakes may be more your style. 

They’re just as easy to make as the chocolate chip ones, and they have the same wonderfully fluffy texture, but these are a delightful fall treat without all the chocolate. 

17. Dairy-Free Cinnamon Rolls

Dairy-free cinnamon rolls are just as sticky, gooey, and insanely sweet as traditional cinnamon rolls, but they’re 100% vegan-approved. 

Unfortunately, vegan doesn’t equal healthy. These sweet treats have a high calorie and carb count. So, be sure to enjoy them sparingly. 

18. No Milk Biscuit Recipe (Dairy-Free)

These gorgeous golden biscuits are soft and cloud-like on the inside and perfectly layered and flaky outside.

They’re also much simpler to make than other homemade biscuits. 

It takes about 25 minutes to prepare and cook a dozen, and you’ll only need five simple kitchen staples: flour, baking powder, salt, oil, and water. 

19. Maple Pecan Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are a tasty, healthy, and protein-packed way to start your day off right, and you simply can’t beat them for convenience. 

You do all the work at night – “all the work” only takes about five minutes -then grab and go on your way out the door. 

You can adjust the toppings to make them sweet, fruity, chocolatey, etc., but this recipe features the warm, rich flavors of cinnamon, maple syrup, and pecans. Yum!

20. Triple Berry Crisp Smoothie Parfait

This primarily smooth and creamy parfait is tart, tangy, and features a nice bit of crunch from the dairy-free granola.

It’s incredibly fruity but not overly sweet. 

Plus, it has a great purple color that’ll turn everyone’s head.

21. Vegan Breakfast Burrito Recipe | Without Eggs + Dairy Free

Sweet, fruity breakfasts are all well and good, but sometimes you need something savory that’s hearty enough to last you all day.

This vegan breakfast burrito fits the bill. 

It only has six major ingredients, but they combine to make one hella hearty meal.

If you enjoy a good Mexican breakfast burrito but need a vegan-friendly option, this is the recipe for you. 

22. Baked Strawberry Donuts

These lovely pink donuts feature a sweet and thick strawberry glaze. It makes them bright, fruity flavor and perfect for summer. 

The donuts themselves are light and moist, and even though they’re gluten-free, you’d never know it by looking at or tasting them. 

Whether you eat them for breakfast, brunch, or as a vegan dessert, they’re sure to delight your taste buds.

23. Tomato & Zucchini Frittata

Frittatas are the whole package, don’t you think?

They’re pretty, colorful, flavorful, and have a great texture. They’re also filling and relatively healthy.

This recipe combines eggs, almond milk, olive oil, your favorite greens, zucchini, garlic, paprika, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, salt, pepper, and all the fresh herbs you can handle. 

It’s a fresh, clean breakfast option that’ll make you feel healthy and righteous just for eating something so all-around good. 

24. Vegan Breakfast Bars – Gluten-Free Oatmeal Bars

These gluten and dairy-free breakfast bars are incredibly chewy and have as much flavor as they do protein. 

They have a spiced, nutty, somewhat tropical taste that’s sweet, rich, and scrumptious. You can make over a dozen in just 35 minutes, making them a great breakfast option. 

They also work well if you need a midday pick-me-up. 

25. Baked Eggs in Avocado

I don’t know who decided to crack eggs into an avocado and bake them, but that person is a true hero. 

I would never have thought about making this protein-heavy, low-carb breakfast on my own, but now I can’t get enough of it. 

All you’ll need is an avocado, egg, crumbled bacon, and chives. (A little hot sauce isn’t bad, either.) It takes 20 minutes or less to make them, and they are heavenly.
