40 Vegan Breakfast Recipes

Here we’ve got 40 of the best vegan breakfast recipes! Sweet, savoury, hot and cold – brunch ideas for a weekend treat or easy, healthy and delicious weekday favourites!

Do you have a default vegan breakfast?  One that you’re just never bored of?  It’s always toast for me.  Doesn’t matter how many times a week (or even a day) I have it, not in my (currently) 48 years have I ever turned down toast.  With jam.  Without jam.  Various foods piled on top.  On the side of a cooked breakfast.  It matters not – toast is my 100% comfort food home.  I’d get bored in college lectures and dream of going home and having toast.  Dad used to make the best toast – the thickest wedges of crusty bread absolutely slathered in butter.  Ahh, my hips and arse are still thanking me to this day.

But let’s talk about other vegan breakfasts because yes they exist.  And boy are they varied and wonderful.  Oh and yes, there’s toast in amongst this lot 😉

I’ve included our personal favourites, ones that we have on a weekly basis and some that are weekend treat, as well as some delicious looking ideas from other bloggers.

Let’s start with the easy vegan breakfast recipes

If you’re mornings are anything like ours they’re an absolute blur.  I’m very lucky that I get to do what I do at home but Phil is up very early either off out to the gym or work.  So it’s an absolute must to have something that’s made ahead.  Saying that, and with most people being as busy as they are, having a good, healthy breakfast ready is a great way to kick start your day.  No matter if you’re dashing off, getting kids ready or just easing into your day before the chaos and hustle starts.

 

VEGAN SMOOTHIES

We love smoothies.  Very portable, easy to consume and absolutely chock full of all the good and healthy stuff.  Or use frozen fruit and enjoy a taste of sunshine!

After toast, overnight oats are probably the most frequently made of the other vegan breakfast recipes – filling and almost infinitely customisable!
