30 Healthy Vegan Breakfasts That Are Crazy-Delicious

Someone get me one of these breakfast burritos, stat.

In a world in which eggs and bacon pretty much dominate the breakfast scene, finding a satisfying (and nourishing) morning meal that also happens to be vegan if often no easy task. Are you stuck with peanut butter toast or oatmeal every day? Answer: Heck no, you're not.

You can eat a different, deliciously vegan breakfast every day of the week—as long as you have a little creativity (and a smart protein strategy).

When building a killer vegan breakfast, "aim for at least 15 to 20 grams of plant-based protein, five grams of fiber, and less than 10 grams of sugar," says dietitian Maggie Michalczyk, MS, RD. "Getting in this much protein and fiber will help fuel your day and prevent you from snacking until lunch."

To get there, start by combining a couple of different sources of plant-based protein, like quinoa, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, tofu, and chickpeas. (Don't worry, the protein and fiber add up fast.) From there, you can add whatever fruits, veggies, and healthy fats speak to you.

A savory example Michalczyk loves: "a quinoa veggie breakfast bowl with quinoa, greens, veggies (like cauliflower, tomatoes, and peppers), pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, and sliced avocado on top."

Prefer your morning meal sweet? Another option: "Dairy-free chia seed pudding with fruit and nut butter on top," Michalczyk suggests. (She especially loves chia seeds because they provide two grams of protein and four grams of fiber per tablespoon.)

Or, you can just pick one of the following uber-good vegan breakfast recipes for guaranteed deliciousness.
