How To Make a Vegan Breakfast
Breakfast!The favorite meal for a lot of us! It gives us energy and if it is good and delicious - it leaves us in a good mood. Breakfast is an important daily ritual. In this post, you will find 5 tasty and healthy vegan breakfast recipe ideas!
We all know that the fastest vegan breakfast is a bowl of muesli with seeds, almonds, dried fruit, grated coconut, honey. Finally, we put everything in a bowl and there it is, our vegan breakfast is ready in less than 10 minutes. But sometimes we want to change. A varied and rich diet is essential for our health. We've found some of the best ideas on the web for a balanced and easy breakfast that will change from the usual morning muesli. Discover them and try them at home!
I. Banana Pancakes
These banana pancakes are rich in potassium, fiber, and magnesium. The preparation time is 5 minutes. You will need 15 minutes for the cooking part.
- 1 cup oatmeal 100 ml soy milk (or almond, coconut)
- 1/3 cup whole flour
- 2 tsp of yeast
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 ripe banana
- Cooking oil (olive oil or coconut oil)
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds.
Mix everything in a large bowl with a whisk. Over medium heat, with a well-oiled pan, pour a small amount of the dough.
II. Quinoa For Breakfast? Yes!
Quinoa is rich in fiber, protein, minerals, B vitamins, iron, manganese, potassium, copper, phosphorus, and antioxidants, minerals and trace elements. As you can see - it's super healthy!
For a portion, you will need:
- 3/4 cup of water
- 1/4 cup of frozen or fresh cashew nuts
- A little bit of stevia or honey or maple syrup
- 1 cup of cooked quinoa
- Blueberries, seeds, and almonds (as you feel)
Add the 4 most important ingredients to a high power blender. Mix until smooth and creamy (resembling the consistency of milk). Put aside.
Place the quinoa in a bowl, pour the milk and sprinkle the toppings.
Enjoy right away with a hot cup of tea or coffee!
III. Granola bars for a vegan breakfast or to eat at any time of the day.
- ¼ cup coconut oil (or coconut butter)
- ¼ cup honey (or maple syrup)
- ¼ tsp. salt
- vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg - whatever you want!
- 1 cup oatmeal
- nuts and seeds (almonds, sunflower seeds, squash seeds, chia seeds)
- 1 cup of dried fruit (figs, dates, raisins, cranberries)
Melt the coconut oil, honey, salt and spices in a medium saucepan. When the liquid mixture melts and becomes a little frothy, turn down the heat. Add the oats and stir. Add the nuts and seeds, and stir again. Finally, add the dried fruits until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. Continue to cook on low heat for a few minutes (this slightly softens the ingredients before cooling them, allowing them to form a whole).
In the meantime, take a dish and spread out parchment paper. Let the mixture cool and spread it on the baking paper by pressing with a wooden spoon so that it is evenly spread. Fold the parchment paper / plastic case over the Granola so that the top is covered. Press hard to properly wrap the whole. You can use a grid, a dish, a cup or your hands for this. Just make sure it is well wrapped and evenly distributed!
Place in the refrigerator and let cool completely - at least two hours, even overnight. Remove the Granola from the parchment paper. You will need to get a large, flat block. Cut into 6-8 bars, and wrap them individually. Store in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks. Enjoy anywhere and anytime!
IV. Vegan gluten-free breakfast with sweet potato toast.
The sweet potato is native to America. It is a wonderful alternative to bread and cereals and 100% gluten-free. The sweet potato has a sweet taste, which makes it ideal for a vegan breakfast. Its preparation is quite easy. Since morning is usually a squeeze, we recommend that you bake it in a toaster. For this, you need a medium-sized sweet potato. Peel it and cut into slices. Grill on the toaster for about 5 minutes (the time also depends on the power of your toaster).
You can garnish it with jam, fruit, nuts, seeds, grated coconut, dried fruit ... Really everything!
V. Vegan breakfast with banana mousse, dates, and cocoa.
Do you like chocolate? So do we! We propose a variant of vegan and healthy chocolate. The ingredients needed to make a vegan chocolate mousse are:
- 1 or 2 bananas or more (it all depends on the quantity you want to make)
- A dozen dates
- A little bit of water
Peel and cut the bananas into slices. Then cut the dates into small pieces. Put everything in a blender, add the cocoa and a little water to the mix!
This vegan recipe is ideal for breakfast or dessert.
Peel the avocado and the banana and cut them into small pieces. Put them in the blender, add the arugula, seeds, nuts, dates, and water. Mix when you get a homogeneous mixture. Pour into a bowl and decorate if desired with sesame or chia seeds. This vegan breakfast is very rich in vitamins and will bring you a lot of energy!
