Vegan breakfast ideas

If you eat vegan, or simply want to cut dairy and meat out of your morning routine, there are so many options for vegan breakfast ideas. Everything from the humble almond butter toast to chocolate brownie pancakes to a tofu scramble works as a nutritious vegan breakfast. Here are a few of our favorite ways to eat vegan in the morning! 

Toast…from humble to fancy

No joke, we love us some peanut butter toast for breakfast. It’s protein packed and keeps us satisfied all morning long! For added flair, try our Cherry Chai Chia Jam with some almond butter for a delicious morning meal. 

Of course, toast can be fancy too! This Vegan Banana French Toast is a light but decadent-tasting. 

Colorful smoothies

Smoothies are another vegan breakfast idea that packs in nutrients. Our favorite smoothie is this sweet tart Glowing Green Apple Smoothie. Another way to eat a smoothie is in a bowl, topped with granola, dried fruit, and nuts. Try our Tart Cherry Granola Smoothie Bowls.

Oatmeal…need we say more? 

Oatmeal is the powerhouse of vegan breakfast ideas. And we’ve got all sorts of options! The Best Toasted Oatmeal is chewy and toasted, and the flavor has readers around the world swearing off “normal” gooey oats. Make up a big pot of  Apple Cinnamon Pressure Cooker Steel Cut Oats and you can eat off of it all week. Or, try our DIY Instant Oatmeal, which you can microwave in 2 minutes. 


Muesli is homemade breakfast cereal: it’s similar to granola but with no oil and very little sweetener. Our Chocolate Muesli recipe and Cinnamon Pecan Muesli recipe are fan favorites. Top with your favorite almond milk and enjoy! 

Muffins & breakfast cookies

Muffins and breakfast cookies are perfect vegan breakfast ideas for mornings on the go. These Turmeric Vegan Blueberry Muffins are another fan favorite recipe: they’re lightly sweet featuring tangy blueberries and a hint of turmeric. Or make a big batch of these Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies and pull them out of the freezer when you’re running out the door!
