50+ Vegan Breakfast Recipes

Okay, let’s talk about breakfast. When I started cutting out all animal products from my diet, breakfast was the hardest meal for me to manage. I never knew what I should eat, so I mainly ate bread and spreads. I still do that occasionally, but now I’ve grown to love a huge variety of different breakfast items.

So in this post, I’m sharing my favorite breakfast recipes plus other bloggers’ favorites.

Here’s an overview of what you’ll find in this Ultimate Breakfast Recipes Collection:

  • Pancakes
  • Waffles
  • French Toast
  • Banana Bread
  • Avocado Toast
  • Tofu Scramble
  • Breakfast Tacos
  • Overnight Oats
  • Breakfast Bars
  • Breakfast Burritos & Wraps
  • Granola
  • Breakfast Bowls
  • Breakfast Sandwiches
  • Smoothies
  • Breakfast Pizza
  • Chia Puddings
  • Omelet
  • Nice Cream

Okay, that’s a long list. I’m sure you’ll find one, two or 50 recipes you’ll like ;)

Tips for quick and fuss-free breakfasts

If you don’t have a lot of time in the morning or you tend to oversleep, you should check out the overnight oats, chia pudding, and granola. All of them can be prepared the day(s) ahead. Store the overnight oats and chia pudding in the fridge overnight, have it ready in the morning. Keep the granola in an air-tight jar and eat it with dairy-free milk (e.g. homemade almond milk is the best!) or yogurt.

For pancakes and waffles, you can prepare the batter the day ahead, leave it in the fridge, add just a bit of more plant-based milk until it reaches the right consistency and then make quick pancakes and waffles in the morning.

Vegan Pancakes

Pancakes are a must-make on weekends! You don’t need any eggs or dairy for the fluffiest pancakes ever!
