Peanut Butter Overnight Oats (5 Ingredients!)

Overnight oats are always a hit at breakfast. They’re easy, delicious, and can be made a few days in advance. 

I like to use coconut milk for added flavor, but any dairy-free alternative would work well for this.

Baked Oatmeal

On a chilly morning, there’s nothing better than a big bowl of baked oatmeal. It’s warm, filling, and just sweet enough to start your day off right.

You’ll use flax seeds as a binder here, but I’ve used mashed bananas as a great substitute!

Overnight Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

You won’t believe how good this tastes. It’s like having dessert for breakfast!

It’s so creamy and pudding-like, and you’ll only need six ingredients.

Be sure to use unsweetened cocoa powder to avoid any added sugar, and feel free to top it with berries.

Vegan Banana Pancakes

Banana pancakes have long been my Sunday morning indulgence, but I could never find a decent vegan version that was light and fluffy.

This recipe nails it! Of course, being banana, you know they’re not super light. But they’re just right and totally addictive!

Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

I usually only have quinoa for lunch or dinner, but it makes so much sense as a breakfast grain when you think about it.

You can keep it fluffy and with more of a bite, or add in some extra dairy-free milk to make it more like porridge. Either way, it’ll be delicious.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Shake

I made this as an after-dinner snack the other day, and it’s honestly like drinking the most decadent ice cream.

If you’ve never tried frozen bananas, you’re in for a treat. They’re sweet, super creamy, and give this recipe a fantastic texture to go along with the nutty, rich flavors. 

These shakes make fantastic vegan breakfasts.

Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl

This recipe is another dessert-like breakfast treat.

For texture, you’ll make a chunky sweet potato pie filling with spices and some raisins. Then add some mashed bananas for sweetness and pecans for crunch. 

It really is genius!

Blueberry Avocado Smoothie Bowl

I thought I was the only one adding avocado to my smoothies! When I don’t have frozen bananas, it’s a great way of getting that silky smooth texture.

This is extra healthy as it uses dates to sweeten it up, rather than sugar or honey.

Vegan French Toast

French toast lovers, rejoice! There really is a delicious vegan version out there.

This one calls for six ingredients and takes just 10 minutes to make.

The secret ingredient is a mashed banana, which adds a creamy, custard-like texture. Be sure to include all your favorite toppings!

4-Ingredient Gluten-Free Granola (Vegan)

I love granola, but it’s often full of preservatives and lots of added sugar when you get it in the stores.

This recipe is all-natural, super simple, and so good. I’ve used maple syrup and honey for this, and it came out great both times. 

You can also add to the mix if you want. I’ve added dried mango before for a more tropical mix.

Healthy Breakfast Vegan Yogurt Parfait

I’ve been super impressed with all the new vegan foods in the stores, especially the yogurt.

It’s honestly just as creamy, and you won’t even know it’s dairy-free.

This would be perfect with some sliced bananas and a big spoonful of that granola you made.

Vegan Carrot Waffles

If you’re a carrot cake lover, this one’s for you.

I love the texture you get from the waffle iron while still keeping the middle fluffy and tender.

Throw over some chopped nuts and raisins, and it’s almost like a slice of carrot cake.

Easy Fruit Salad Recipe

You can’t go wrong with a good fruit salad. It’s bright, healthy, and easy to bring on the go!

Don’t forget to drizzle over some citrus juice to keep everything fresh, and why not add some almonds or chopped pecans for a little bit of crunch?

3-Ingredient Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Any excuse for me to eat cookies for breakfast, and I’m there!

Between the rolled oats, banana, and peanut butter, these are so delicious and perfectly chewy.

The chocolate chips are optional… but are they? Really?

Vegan Banana Muffins

I love muffins for breakfast because I know they’ll be sweet, fluffy, and filling. Not to mention, I can eat them on the go!

And yes, this recipe does include buttermilk! Did you know you can use dairy-free milk? 

Make it yourself by adding one tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice into a cup and topping it up with your milk of choice.

Just let it sit for about 10 minutes before you use it.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread

I just love that title! It’s got everything I want in sweet bread, plus it’s gluten-free and vegan!

This bread is super sweet (naturally) and crazy moist. It’s nutty, rich, and has some lovely texture from the added oats, making it extra satisfying.

Fruity Vegan Scones

Yes, I’m a bit of a scone-snob. Having learned how to make them in the UK, I think I’m allowed!

But I have to admit, these are stunning! They’re so light, and you won’t know they’re vegan.

Top tip: always soak your fruit before mixing it in. I like to soak mine in tea for about 10 minutes or until plump.

Just remember to remove the tea bags after about 5 minutes to prevent them from becoming bitter.

Vegan Granola Cups with Fruit and Lemon Filling

These little cups are such a clever way to get the kids to eat their oats. They look like pudding-filled cupcakes, and even the pickiest of eaters won’t be able to resist. 

If making them for kids, maybe hold back a little on the lemon juice. You won’t want it too tart for them.

Vegan Crepes

Add a little French flair to breakfast with these vegan crepes.

They’re made with non-dairy milk, sugar, flour, and salt. To keep them from falling apart during cooking, be sure to let the batter sit in the fridge overnight.

You can fill these with whatever toppings your heart desires!

Vegan Avocado Toast

This is such an easy recipe to make vegan! Avocados are all-natural and super creamy, making them excellent as a spread. 

I like my toast with bacon and eggs. But you can make this a filling start to the day by topping it with everything from chickpeas and tomatoes to crunchy radishes.

Vegan Breakfast Sandwich

Believe it or not, you can still enjoy a tasty breakfast sandwich without the meat, eggs, and cheese.

Swap out tempeh bacon for regular, and layer on almond butter, avocado, and sautéed kale.

The Best Tofu Scramble

I’m one of those people who didn’t know how to cook tofu for the longest time. It was always mushy and unpleasant, and it put me off for a while.

With this recipe, you’ll want a mushy texture, but it’s vital to get firm or extra-firm tofu. Otherwise, it will be too soft.

Savory Vegan Breakfast Bowl

This is my kind of vegan breakfast recipe! It has many filling foods, such as rice and tofu, and fantastic flavors from sauteed veggies and potatoes. 

Top tip: make up a bunch of the components and keep them in the fridge. That way, you can grab a portion when you need it for a super-fast and hearty breakfast.

Vegan Frittata

Frittatas are typically made with eggs, but this one uses chickpea flour instead.

It’s also loaded with zucchini, peas, tomatoes, and fresh basil. You can have it ready in less than 20 minutes.

Serve it with vegan yogurt and avocado.

They’re melty, crispy, and delicious!

Vegan Breakfast Burritos

Remember when I said to make a batch of veggies and keep them in the fridge? Here’s an excellent use for them!

Breakfast burritos can be thrown together in minutes, and they’ll keep you going well into lunchtime.

Vegan Grits and Greens

Grits and greens are so comforting, but you have to know how to make them right.

Be sure to clean your greens of any leftover sand and soil thoroughly, and always cook your grits slowly. Add them a little at a time.

They should be soft and creamy when you’re done.

Vegan Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash

This recipe calls for tempeh, which is a Japanese fermented soybean product. It is chewier and has more of a nutty flavor than tofu.

If you can’t find it, try making your own, or just use firm tofu. Remember, you’ll need to press the tofu to get out all that extra moisture!

Fluffy Vegan Biscuits (5 Ingredients!)

Since the vegan scones were such a hit, I figured these would be, too!

To be honest, the recipe for biscuits is similar to scones. To make them vegan, just swap out the butter and milk for a dairy-free alternative.

Vegan Breakfast Tacos

Breakfast tacos are such a treat. There’s nothing better than sitting down on a lazy weekend morning to a spread of scrambled tofu, refried beans, spicy guacamole, and salsa.

If scrambled tofu isn’t your thing, try roasting some sweet potatoes instead!
