Vegan Breakfast Ideas With Easy Plant-Based Recipes

Spread the love

I actually came up with these healthy vegan breakfast ideas back in the day when I ran a health care place requiring daily menus for scores of adults. As a result I’ve got volumes of epic breakfast ideas, lunch ideas, dinner ideas, snacks, enough go-to vegan meal preps to last a lifetime!

Being that I’m one of those people that burns the midnight oil working on projects and rarely eats breakfast in the morning and drinks coffee instead, and typically postpones my first (and sometimes only) meal of the day to mid-afternoon or later due to frequent intermittent fasting, the question might be this:

How can I possibly suggest any so-called healthy vegan breakfast ideas to anyone, much less when it’s literally been years since I’ve consumed a ‘conventional’ breakfast myself?

Well back in the day when I was juggling tons of family stuff and also running a health care facility catering to the medical and dietary needs of a diverse group of people, I was also responsible for ensuring three solid meals a day with snacks on an 80-hr 24/7 per week rotation.

Which also required the planning, prepping, coordinating, and implementation of tons of daily meal plans for scores of adults.

That, along with decades of cooking both personally and professionally in an organic food business, set the stage for all the recipes I still adore, like these delectable vegan favorites linked below.

All organic, plant-based, and gluten-free.

1. Vegan Protein Smoothies

Cluster of six creamy rich vegan smoothies including mango, raspberry, banana, avocado, pomegranate, and spinach on a fresh fruit strewn mat.
Homemade smoothies are a breakfast go-to.

Delicious vegan protein smoothies are one of the fastest, easiest, and most delectable ways to rock a healthy breakfast, and especially with protein powders and organic superfoods onboard.

They’re not only filling, they pack an entire meal’s nutrients in a single glass.

Here are things I typically add (recipe below):

2. Vegan Granola

Heaping mason jar and overflowing wooden spoons of chunky vegan granola with cashews, almonds, raisins, grains, and seeds.
Homemade vegan granola is a high-fiber, nutrient-dense treat.

This delicious vegan homemade granola recipe is an epic breakfast idea. You can make big batches and always keep some on hand.  

It’s a high-fiber, nutrient-dense breakfast and super easy to make. It rocks with yogurt, smoothie bowls, scrambled tofu, fruit salads, and more.

3. Vegan Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat Pancakes

These incredible Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat pancakes are beyond delicious, and one of the most popular, nutrient-dense breakfasts of all.

You can mix up the ingredients and toppings for whole slews of different spins:

4. Vegan Buckwheat Porridge

Whole grain buckwheat porridge with berries is a powerhouse.

It should come as little surprise that a rich delicious porridge recipe is on this list, and especially since it’s one of the best vegan breakfast ideas ever.

It not only rocks amaranth, oats, chia, flax, and Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat, it’s a high-protein, fiber-rich, nutrient-dense meal.

Here’s a list of gluten-free grains:

You can slow cook porridge overnight, by the way.

5. Loaded Vegan Yogurt Bowl

Organic vegan yogurt is not only an easy breakfast plan, it’s highly stackable. It rocks nuts and berries, coulis, seeds, superfoods, trail mix, and more.

And if you haven’t tried it with protein powders yet, I’m definitely a fan. I pack Forager Cashewmilk and So Delicious with huge scoops of nootropics.



  • Add yogurt to a large bowl. 
  • Mix in fruits and nuts.
  • Stir in stevia.  
  • Stack it.

Topping Ideas  

Keep in mind that nuts boost lifespan and they’re literally jam-packed with nutrients.

6. Vegan Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat Waffles

Along with pancakes, I’m a huge fan of delicious Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat (HTB) waffles. They’re a go-to breakfast idea and gut-healthy treat.

That’s because HTB, according to Dr. Jeffrey Bland, is “the most immuneoactive, nutrient-dense plant yet discovered.”

You can learn more about it here. Get the waffles recipe here.

7. Vegan Buckwheat Blinis

Buckwheat blinis can be savory or sweet.

Blinis are a fun diversion from pancakes, waffles, and crepes, and even moonlight as a bread. They’re akin to crepes, but a smaller, thicker, yeast-based round.

They’re also savory or sweet and rock tons of additions.

8. Vegan Buckwheat Breakfast Crepes

Organic buckwheat crepes are rich.

Speaking of crepes, these buckwheat crepes are a classic. People absolutely adore them! In fact I’ve never made a batch yet that didn’t completely vanish before the next round.

Made with Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat, almond flour, and chia eggs.
