25 Awesome Vegan Breakfast Ideas!

Breakfast can be a pain at the best of times, but when you first become plant based, there is a huge void to be filled. If you’re used to having a bacon roll or sausages or eggs or smoked salmon for your first meal of the day, what on earth do you replace this with? I’ve trawled through some of my vegan friend’s blogs, the blogosphere and Pinterest and found 25 delicious vegan breakfast recipes that I think you might enjoy! They range from the super easy, to a more leisurely brunch-type affair.

A bowl of muesli with yogurt
You can’t start the day without a coffee, and here’s a delicious and easy Iced Coffee Recipe.
You may have seen these skyhigh pancakes on the GBBO or social media and sighed because…egg. Lisa from Okonomi Kitchen (one of my favourite blogs and Instagrammers) veganised this recipe, trying it over 20 times before perfecting it! Thank you Lisa!
This is my own very popular recipe for Banana Peanut Butter Pancakes. The beauty of this is, you don’t need to add too much extra syrup as they are already sweet enough!
For the gluten-free and cooking-phobic amongst you, here’s some super yummy Granola Cups that will fulfill your breakfast needs (and you actually eat the cup too!).
“Creamy, dreamy AND vegan, this sweet potato smoothie is basically Thanksgiving in a cup (but why wait until then!)”
“Hearty, country style buckwheat pancakes get elevated with soft, sweet poached pears. These pancakes are the perfect sponge for the sweet juices that come along with the pears.” (replace the egg in the recipe with 1/4 applesauce).
“The most DELICIOUS vegan scones recipe! Get tips on how to bake flaky, buttery scones. These strawberry rosemary scones topped with powdered sugar are the perfect treat in the morning!”
I love that just because you have food preferences/intolerances you don’t have to deprive yourself of yummy treats. The lovely people over at Holly Tree Kitchen devised this amazing GF/Vegan/Low Fodmap recipe for crumpets and I for one could not be happier!
“Simple banana oat cookies that you can eat for breakfast. Delicious with pieces of chocolate and peanut butter. Low FODMAP, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan.”
One of the easiest breakfasts you can make, and also the most adaptable, you just need a little patience for the Chia Seeds to do their thing!
These fluffy sweet potato breakfast bowls are the perfect paleo and vegan breakfast recipe. They can be eaten hot or cold so it’s the perfect cozy breakfast in the winter or refreshing but hearty recipe for summer.
“These easy lazy vegan pancakes are perfect for brunch, and quick to whip up when you’ve gotten out of bed a little bit too late. This recipe is almost impossible to mess up, and I know this from personal experience having made it half asleep a bunch of times.”
“Find out how to make a super flavorful and simple tofu scramble with spinach and cherry tomatoes in 15 minutes! Forget about “bland” tofu, this tofu scramble is bursting with umami flavor, seasoned with nutritional yeast and tahini. A great plant-based alternative to scrambled eggs…”
“A low FODMAP granola that is healthy and homemade, filled with big clusters, lower in sugar, and filled with flavor. It will be a new favorite in your house!”
“Stuffed Sweet Potatoes for Breakfast, 5 different recipes (vegan and gluten-free)! Whether you want sweet and savory, these easy, healthy recipes make any morning better!”
“My carrot bacon is so easy to make; it’s salty and savoury, with a touch of sweetness, and is made from just 5 basic store cupboard ingredients! Go and make some!”
“This Matcha Green Tea Smoothie is perfect for a light and healthy breakfast!”
The Six Vegan Sisters summed this recipe up perfectly: “We don’t wanna toot our own horns, but this is possibly the best recipe for coffee cake. Ever. Vegan or non-vegan.”
This is for mornings when you’re feeling a little delicate, or maybe you’ve been overdoing the rich food. I love a comforting broth in the morning, and this is such a beautiful recipe.
“These vegan waffles are super simple and easy to make yet so soft, fluffy and delicious! Great for yummy breakfast or even dessert. You can also make them ahead of time and freeze them for a quick breakfast, just pop into the toaster and they are ready!”
“Raw Vegan Chocolate Doughnuts-so rich, chocolatey and no dehydrator required!”
A super easy oatmeal recipe by me!
“Healthy Baked Oatmeal Recipe is the BEST quick and easy vegan and gluten free breakfast which can be made overnight, in the oven or in the microwave!” 
“Vegan French Toast recipe with a cinnamon-spiced batter and fluffy bread is an easy 6-ingredient breakfast or brunch kids and adults love. Dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free.”
