Raspberry Chia Breakfast Jars

Raspberry Chia Breakfast Jars

We love serving this pudding-like, fruity treat in pretty glasses or jars for a light breakfast or snack. If you want to fancy things up a bit, a dollop of coconut whipped cream is also great.

Cherry–Hemp Muesli

This is a simple European–inspired breakfast cereal that is easy to make and convenient to keep on hand for a Quick breakfast. It’s especially great to take with you when traveling. I find the dates balance out the tartness of the cherries quite nicely, but you can substitute either with your favorite dried fruits, such as apricots, apples, and cranberries. Serve with chopped bananas, apples, or fresh berries and your favorite nut milk. See a cooked variation following the recipe box.

Baked Almond Butter & Apricot Oatmeal by Ann Oliverio

This easy and warming oatmeal, richly flavored with almond butter, apricots, and ginger, is not only gluten-free, but oil-free as well. The origins of this recipe come from my month-long peanut butter and jelly blog posts in honor of Vegan Month of Food — a yearly blogging event where vegans from all over the world commit to sharing at least 20 vegan-centric recipes, articles, information, and commentary during the month of September. Recipe and photo by Ann Oliverio, from Crave, Eat, Heal: Plant-Based Whole Food Recipes to Satisfy Every Appetitereprinted with permission © 2015 Front Table Books.
