Vegan Breakfast Recipes
I’m officially in love with anything pumpkin flavored, though I admit I’ve only recently started cooking with pumpkin … and I’ve been missing out. Luckily, that dry spell is over. This recipe is great for the waffle maker. Most vegan pancakes tend to be dense and the waffle maker gives it a bit more of a fluffy texture. I left out baking powder on purpose from the recipe because you can make them taste great without it. Add any fruit or maple syrup that you have on hand as a topping.

Make these strawberry-filled vegan pancakes in late spring and early summer, when strawberries are at their best. Perfect for a relaxing Sunday brunch.

I love these pancakes. I designed them so each pancake is a meal in itself, with texture not usually expected from a pancake and a big flavor profile with a minimal amount of work. They’re fun, delicious, filling, and perfect for a cold morning and a cup of hot tea. Recipe and photo contributed by Jason Wyrick from The Vegan Taste. more→

Nothin’ like homemade granola. I love the scent and taste of freshly baked granola served with some nondairy milk on the side. To jazz it up a bit, top the granola with a dollop of Banana Whipped Topping. Mornings just got better!

This breakfast bowl featuring chia seeds is just as easy as to make as pouring a bowl of cereal, more nutritious and tastes even better! It takes two minutes to mix all the ingredients together, place in an air-tight container and refrigerate overnight. Wake up and breakfast is ready. You can also portion out into smaller containers for a great grab and go breakfast on the run. more→

Start with cooked quinoa, then add a bit of sweetening, spice, fresh fruit, and nuts or seeds for a nourishing breakfast that will sustain you through the morning. If you make quinoa recipes regularly, you may have leftover, unseasoned quinoa in the fridge, which is ideal for this — less to do in the morning! Photos by Hannah Kaminsky. more→
Here’s something a little creamy, a little sweet, and easy to pair with nearly anything. Behold, shockingly simple, pretty, sumptuous sweet vegan ricotta. This spread pairs beautifully when slathered on crackers or toast, crowns fruit in a gorgeous way, adds oomph to baking recipes, and is a creamy, dreamy topping for oatmeal and granola. I like mine nestled between french toast and marmalade. more→
