7 Vegan Breakfast Ideas – That Aren’t Smoothies

Being vegan doesn’t mean only eating smoothies and salads (though those are awesome!). There are lots of healthy, amazing choices for vegan eating. Let’s check out breakfast!

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good green smoothie for breakfast, but sometimes you just need something a little bit heartier! I often crave warm food to hold me over but am rarely out the door in time to put shoes on. So, what’s left? Prepping at night can help to alleviate some of the morning breakfast stress, or you can try some of these options below for quick and easy on-the-go breakfasts!

Waffle Sandwich

Yes, frozen waffles. There are a ton of great gluten-free vegan waffles in the freezer section of your grocery store. In the morning, pop 2 in the toaster and top with your favorite nut butter and sliced bananas! Not feeling sweet? Take plain waffles and top with vegan cream cheese and vegan deli slices. Out the door you go!

Breakfast Burritos

This one takes a little bit of prep ahead of time but is totally worth it especially if made in bulk! Make your burrito filling and roll each burrito up in parchment paper, then store in a glass container n the fridge. In the morning, simply take the burrito from the dish (leave the parchment paper on) and place on an oven-proof plate covered with a damp paper towel/napkin and reheat. Done and done.

Overnight Oats

Quick and easy to make the night before, overnight oats are a tremendously filling on-the-go breakfast option to have on hand! Mix oats, chia seeds, fruit, nuts, and cinnamon with enough plant-based milk to cover it, then leave in the fridge overnight. Grab in the morning and eat in the car or even when you get to work! Want to add some protein to the oats? Try a scoop of awesome Sunwarrior protein powder mixed in or even some cooked quinoa. The flavor combinations are truly endless!

Tofu Scramble

A great protein packed breakfast: tofu scramble can be made the night before or the morning of. Crumble some tofu into a pan and sauté with about 2 tablespoons water and spices until all of the water has evaporated. My favorite spice mixture at the moment is equal parts of cumin, chili powder, nutritional yeast, turmeric, and a pinch of salt.

Avocado Toast

It’s no doubt that the fat in avocado will help to keep you fuller longer. Toast your favorite bread and top with ½ of a mashed avocado. Season with your favorite spices or salsa! Can’t get much easier than that my friends.

Loaded Muffins

There are a TON of vegan muffin recipes out there that are begging to be tried! On the weekend, make up a batch of your favorite muffin. Add in mix-ins such as shredded carrots, zucchini, Sunwarrior protein powder, or mashed banana to give you a dose of health and don’t forget to use whole wheat flour! It doesn’t get much easier than grab-and-go for these.

Fruit and Yogurt Parfait

Make the night before or the morning of, either way, this won’t take you very long at all. In a mason jar or Tupperware, layer your favorite vegan yogurt with your favorite granola and berries. Everyone will be looking at you and your pretty breakfast and wishing they had some – I guarantee it!
