12 Vegan Breakfast Recipes

In this post, I’ve compiled my favorite 12 Vegan Breakfast Recipes ranging from Chia Puddings to Tofu Scrambles and Pancakes. You’ll love these!

Vegan Breakfast Recipes

As we learned in Arrested Development, breakfast is the most important thing (or was it family?…) – so I thought I’d compile a list of my favorite vegan breakfast recipes. When I started changing to a vegan diet, breakfast always has been a bit difficult for me. I never knew what I could eat and I ran out of ideas quickly. This is why I wanted to create this collection of breakfast ideas.

All of the vegan breakfast recipes in this post are vegan, some of them are also gluten-free (tofu scrambles, chia puddings, spreads & chickpea omelets).

What kind of breakfast I eat, depends on the day and how much time I have. On weekdays, I often eat chia puddings or toasted bread slices with spreads, because chia puddings are great to prepare the day ahead and toasting bread slices in the morning is really quick too and I keep the spreads prepared in the fridge. On weekends, however, it’s on! Hello, brunch! I usually make tofu scrambles or pancakes (or both, because why not :D).

I usually eat oatmeal for breakfast, the only thing that changes is the fruit I serve it with. But sometimes I eat white yoghurt with fruit or "french toast" which is basically homemade bread with a little bit of avocado spread on it and black salt.

I totally dig these recipes and I printed them out, gotta try these bc it looks soooooo yummy.

Ohhh I love homemade bread + avocado + black salt. That's pure perfection :) Can you believe I've never had oatmeal?! I really should give it a try soon.

Yum! I've been eating avocado toast with lemon and dukkah lately, and sometimes overnight oats with coconut, or a green smoothie. I have chia pudding most days at work :)

I think I did something wrong. My batter was very watery and pancakes were very flat. I used I cup gluten-free all purpose flour and 1 cup club soda. Would either of these be the error?

Hi Erin, thanks for the feedback! I'll recheck the flour-ratio the next time I'm making pancakes. If the batter was watery it explains why the pancakes were flat. I've never made these pancakes with gluten-free flour.. but if you've used a gluten-free flour mix that can be used 1:1 instead of regular flour, I don't see why it shouldn't work. The problem of flat pancakes would probably be solved by starting with less sparkling water and adding more and more until a perfect pancake batter (not runny or watery; does not spread in the pan or pancake griddle) is reached. But I'll get back to you once I've checked the ratios :D
