Whether you’re in the mood for something savory, something a little sweet, or something in between, you can find the perfect breakfast to start off your day.
If you’re a longtime vegan — or even just a health enthusiast — you probably know overnight oats well. Overnight oatmeal is the perfect breakfast for a quick morning, a morning on the go, or even just a lazy day without too much morning prep. If you have some leftover time the night before, put together some overnight oats with any number of ingredients — from frozen fruit to almond butter to chocolate chips.
Speaking of easy recipes that are both delicious and nutritious, why not try making your own granola and keeping a batch around for those busy mornings when you need to stay full and alert? This homemade pecan granola recipe is perfect for just that. This particular recipe includes oats, coconut, almonds, pecans, and so many other goodies, but you can always personalize it to your liking.
Everybody loves pancakes, but why not go for a slightly healthier option that still knocks your socks off with whole grains? Specifically, this recipe is a great choice because you can make the mix ahead of time so you don’t need to do as much prep, just like store-bought pancake mix allows for. This one is sure to be a fan favorite, and you can top them with anything from chocolate chips to fruit, and of course, classic maple syrup.
Of course, we have to put a green smoothie in here somewhere, and which one could be better than the classic best green smoothie, perfect for all vegans on the go and in need of a boost? You can always personalize the recipe to your liking and what’s in season in your area, but there’s something special about getting a boost of greens first thing in the morning.
If you find yourself missing some of the savory, eggy breakfast options from your pre-vegan days, you don’t have to worry, because this tofu scramble has you covered. You can toss any number of seasonings, veggies, and spices into your tofu scramble — it’s truly anybody’s game! But the most important thing is the savory, filling tofu that really takes on an eggy quality when you prepare it right. What are you waiting for? It’s time to get scrambling!
Whether or not you’ve had banana bread before, it’s one of the best quick vegan breakfast options to have at the ready. As long as you have a free evening to get some baking done, you can take a slice with you wherever you go on any busy morning. Plus, banana bread is absolutely delicious and well-loved by vegans and non-vegans alike.
