18 Vegan Breakfast Recipes That Make Getting Out of Bed So Much Easier
Just because you want to eat a dairy- and egg-free breakfast doesn't mean you have to deprive yourself of something delicious. With these vegan breakfast recipes to look forward to each morning, you'll start your day feeling good. Here, we're offering a range of healthy and nutritious options that you can grab on the go, like the Vegan Granola Bars pictured here, or indulgent vegan breakfast ideas that are worth waking up a little earlier to make.
Let's start with a classic that everyone loves: Avocado Coconut Toast. Avocado toast isn't going anywhere anytime soon and for good reason. Its main ingredient has healthy fats that will keep you satisfied all morning long. Create even more flavor by brushing coconut oil on toasted whole-grain bread, then top slices of avocado with flaky salt, red-pepper flakes, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Another breakfast that will never go out of style is granola; we have two delicious and nutty recipes—Granola with Dark Chocolate, Olive-Oil, and Maple and Toasted-Coconut Granola. You certainly can't go wrong with either one.
If you want something a little heartier but still nutritious, try making our Vegan Banana Bread. It substitutes unsweetened almond milk in place of regular milk and coconut oil instead of vegetable oil; ground flaxseeds are added for a whole host of heart-healthy perks. Looking for a big-time sweet treat at breakfast? Vegan Banana French Toast should bring a smile to your face. In place of the traditional custard, a mixture of silken tofu, unsweetened almond milk, maple syrup, bananas, vanilla extract, and almonds are blended together to create the creamy, sweet base for crusty baguette slices.
