14 Boredom-Busting Plant-Based Breakfasts: That’s 2 Weeks of Breakfast Bliss!

By Lisa Esile, MS,

From granola+fruit and cooked grain bowls to "egg" and veggie combos, we've got you covered. And if those don't tickle your taste buds, how about breakfast tacos, a hearty bean/potato dish or french toast?

Save this list and come back to it when you need some inspiration.

(And if you manage to try all 14, here's a prior post with another week's worth: 7 Sweet and Savory Whole-Food Vegan Breakfasts.)

Another gorgeous breakfast from Chef Sroufe. Rice pudding is always such a hit because it's so darn comforting. And the cinnamon stick, dates and raisins in this recipe make it extra divine!  Works well as a dessert too. GET THE RECIPE.

Orange French Toast

This ingenious recipe uses aquafaba (liquid from soaked beans), orange zest, and cinnamon to make French toast that’s soft, thick and eggy. Yum!!

Chocolate Chip Coconut Pancakes

With flaxseeds, oats, and buckwheat flour these delicious gluten-free pancakes are packed with goodness. They freeze well—you could make a batch for the week. And they’re great for dessert too!
This vegan granola recipe was inspired by my favorite banana almond muffins. Whether in muffins or in cereal, bananas and almonds pair perfectly.

Banana Almond Granola

This is such a simple and tasty breakfast. As one reader says, “I am shocked and amazed and delighted that an oil-free (and still crunchy!) granola is possible.”

Chickpea Omelet

What better way to start the day than with this egg-free omelet, made with chickpea flour, nutritional yeast and other flavorings. To serve, add tomatoes, spinach, salsa, hot sauce, or whatever plant-delicious toppings you like.
Polenta with Pears and Cranberries

This is another one of those breakfasts that doubles as a scrumptious desert. The cooked fruit on top of the buttery-like polenta is such a winning combination.
This basic healthy oatmeal recipe is all you need to get started on a delicious breakfast… add as much or as little of the extras (like fruit!) as you like.

Healthy Oatmeal with Fruit and Nuts

This basic oatmeal recipe is such a good one to have up your sleeve. It’s so versatile! Add whatever nuts and fresh and dried fruits you have on hand.

Egyptian Breakfast Beans (Ful Medames)

Not used to eating beans for breakfast? It can take some getting used to—but before you know it you’ll be wondering how you ate anything else. This traditional Egyptian breakfast recipe is super simple and incredibly satisfying. You do need to soak and cook the beans, but to save time it’s easy enough to cook bulk beans ahead of time and freeze so they’re on hand and ready to go.
Breakfast Bowl

Apple-Lemon Breakfast Bowl

With the fresh flavors of dates, walnuts, lemon juice and apple, this raw vegan breakfast leaves you feeling satisfied but not weighed down.
There are many good recipes for scrambles, but most call for tofu. In this vegan scrambled eggs recipe, cauliflower takes it's place—with delicious results.

Breakfast Scramble

Such a simple but delicious scramble. The recipe uses nutritional yeast, turmeric and cayenne pepper for flavor. And where most vegan scrambles use tofu, this scrummy mix uses cauliflower instead.

Brown Rice Breakfast Pudding

Another gorgeous breakfast from Chef Sroufe. Rice pudding is always such a hit because it’s so darn comforting. And the cinnamon stick, dates and raisins in this recipe make it extra divine!  Works well as a dessert too.
Chocolate Pancakes

Chocolate Pancakes

These healthy, gluten-free, chocolate pancakes are perfect for a weekend morning when you feel like a treat! We agree with author Somer McCowan, they’re great served with strawberries, raspberries, or bananas—or any of your favorite fruit!
Sweet Potato Hash

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Hash

If you’re looking for a filling and tasty meal idea, you’ve found it! This mash works on tacos or toast, or even by itself. Great for lunch or dinner too. We love how cook Jill Nussinow, author of Vegan Under Pressure: Perfect Vegan Meals Made Quick and Easy in Your Pressure Cooker, also gives pressure cooking instructions.

Easy Overnight Oats With Chia

Preparing breakfast in the morning doesn’t get any easier than this. Soak the ingredients overnight, and in the morning just add the fruit and/or nut toppings you desire. And there you have it—a delicious, healthy, breakfast on the run!

Whole-Wheat Berry Muffins

What better grab-and-go breakfast, or mid morning snack than these light and tasty blueberry muffins. Not too sweet and berry-licious!

Apple-Walnut Breakfast Bread

This oil-free, vegan loaf makes a great treat, perfect for a lazy weekend or afternoon snack. The classic apple-cinnamon-walnut combination is as fabulous as ever.
