Fast Vegan Breakfasts for Busy Weekday Mornings
Even carnivores will enjoy these feel-good recipes.
Vegan and easy don’t always go together, especially when it comes to breakfast. When you say goodbye to eggs and bacon, it’s hard to think of breakfasts that are filling, simple and weekday-friendly. But don’t worry — we’ve got it covered. From veggie-packed scrambles to decadent dishes (we see you, French toast) these vegan breakfasts will start your day on a happy, healthy note.
Don’t be wary of vegan muffins — with soy milk yogurt, almond milk and applesauce, these blueberry treats are just as moist and tender as traditional muffins. Plus, they’re ready in just one hour — and that includes baking time. Make a batch on Sunday and store them in an airtight container for a grab-and-go option that’s sure to spark some workplace envy.
The key to super-fluffy vegan pancakes? Extra baking powder — it lends the perfect amount of puff to these egg-free cakes. We prefer to top our pancakes with the traditional maple syrup, but nut butters and jam are equally delicious.
Good for you? Check. Ready in less than half an hour? Also check. With spinach, tomato and scallion, this colorful breakfast scramble is ready in just 25 minutes. Plus, thanks to seasoned tofu, it’s packed with protein and fiber to keep you full ‘til lunch.
Fall in love at first bite with these always crispy, never soggy waffles. Refrigerated soy milk and whole wheat flour create the perfect texture for this sweet breakfast, which comes together in just 15 minutes. As an added bonus, these vegan waffles freeze beautifully — when you’re ready to eat, just pop them in the oven until warm and crisp!
We love how customizable this French toast is. As written, the recipe makes a slightly drier French toast. For a softer, gooier version, soak the bread in the almond milk, soy yogurt and cinnamon mixture for an extra minute per side.
Coconut milk and hemp seeds do double-duty in this colorful smoothie — they balance out the zing of kiwi, ginger and parsley and provide a satisfying boost of protein. And, as an added bonus, the entire thing is a breeze to whip up — so feel free to hit that snooze button one more time.
