If you are a vegan, breakfast may seem difficult to find. One must be creative to get the nutrients that one needs before starting their day. However, if you find yourself running late and looking for something quick, this article is perfect for you!
Here are 6 vegan breakfast snacks that are fast, healthy, and delicious:
Pancakes are a classic breakfast food that is easy to make, tastes delicious, and provides you with the energy needed to get going. The best part? They can be made vegan! All you have to do is grab some organic flour, oil, vanilla extract, and almond milk from your local grocery store or online – if not already available at home. Once these ingredients are ready, add them into a bowl and the baking powder and any other spices/seasonings of choice. Mix it until smooth, then pour into a warm pan while frying each side for around 30 seconds. Use either on medium heat or until browned enough, depending on how crispy you like them. You will end up with a delicious stack of vegan pancakes that are perfect for any occasion. In a rush? Just grab a bag of Birch Benders Plant Protein Pancake Mix and get cooking!
Chia seeds help keep me full until lunchtime, so having chia oatmeal as a snack or even part of my vegan breakfast works great. It’s also easy to take on trips since it doesn’t need any cooking – add water and go about your business while it sits and thickens. You can buy chia oatmeal online or make it homemade.
All you have to do is combine any oatmeal with chia seeds, coconut flakes, and water. This will provide your body with the carbs/protein that it needs and some fiber. Not only does this taste great, but it’s healthy.
Smoothies are very popular and make a pretty tasty vegan breakfast. They can be made in a variety of ways, but the important part is that you add a high-quality vegan protein powder to your smoothie along with fruits and veggies. This will provide you with energy while also giving your body what it needs to function throughout the day. There are countless smoothie recipes online, so take advantage of these healthy creations. Make sure you read all the ingredients on your protein powder because not all protein powders are created equal. Some are made with fillers, added sugar, and other ingredients you don’t want cluttering up your protein powder.
Vegan Avocado Toast
Avocados are very popular in the vegan world because of their delicious taste and texture. They can be combined with anything, especially on some toast! Some people like to add some salt/pepper or even hot sauce, but I prefer mine plain so that you can experience all its natural flavors. The best part about this recipe is how simple it is – take your favorite bread to smash up an avocado onto each slice. Then throw them into a pan until browned enough for your liking. You will end up with crispy yet soft wheat bread that has been topped off with creamy slices, which make for a great vegan breakfast snack any time of day.
Vegan Smoothie Bowl
Smoothie bowls are very popular and a great vegan breakfast snack! Not only are they yummy, but they can provide you with a lot of energy too. All that’s required is to take your favorite smoothie recipe and basically make it thicker than usual (a Vitamix works great for this!) and pour it into a bowl. Add toppings according to preference, such as fruit, coconut flakes, flax seeds, nuts, cocoa nibs, goji berries, or even stevia-sweetened chocolate chips for a sweet treat! The best part? It takes only around five minutes to make this delicious breakfast treat, so there are no excuses to not eat this healthy alternative to breakfast cereal out of a cardboard box.
Cereal and Almond Milk
If you are looking for a quick vegan breakfast cereal, look no further! There is now an endless amount of vegan breakfast cereals that are healthy and delicious – check them out online or at your local grocery store.
Almond milk is a great vegan alternative to dairy and comes in many flavors, like original, vanilla, or chocolate. You can also buy the unsweetened kind for your morning snacks. It makes a yummy cereal or smoothie base, too, since there are only 40 calories per ounce – which is less than regular cow’s milk, by the way. Plus, one cup contains half your daily recommended calcium intake, so have two cups every day for maximum health benefits.
All these recipes are quick and easy to make, so there is no excuse not to try them out. You will end up with a delicious morning vegan breakfast that you can enjoy every day. Once you have tried these different recipes, experiment with other ingredients until finding the perfect combination that suits your preferences. Remember, everyone has their own tastes for food, but at least give these a shot and try to go vegan.
