Crunchy Holiday Spiced Granola (Gluten-Free)

Caitlin used her wizardry to come up with a granola recipe free of gluten, oil and refined sugars. That’s a win!
Almond Butter Overnight Oats
When you’ve got a family member singing praises of overnight oats, it might just get you curious enough to see what it’s all about—and that’s exactly what drew Alison to experiment and come up with her own twist on an overnight oats recipe.
The result? A filling breakfast treat featuring 7 ingredients including almond milk, almond butter and chia seeds.
Once you’ve finished the preparation, simply top your oats with fresh fruit and voila, a filling, sweet and satisfying breakfast you’ll keep coming back to!

This sandwich yields a versatile combination of flavors and textures, being salty, sweet, saucy, spicy, and throw in chewy while you’re at it!

All in all, a seemingly innocent yet flavor-packed 7-ingredient sandwich worth every bite!
The Perfect Vegan French Toast
When I’m looking for something a little more puffy than pancakes, and with a chewier texture than regular toasted bread, French toasts are indeed the perfect middle-path.
Andrew’s creatively devised “perfect vegan French toast” recipe is easily amongst our favorites in this category.
And if you want, it doesn’t have to end with the plainly prepared French toasts. You can take it to a whole other level by pairing the toasts with a fruit and nut butter filling to create a sandwich!
Orange Almond Breakfast Loaf
It’s been a hectic week and Friday concluded with a bang. So, what do you need next? A lazy weekend? You need to prepare Vaishali’s “make-ahead” orange almond breakfast loaf to go along with it!
This loaf is delicately glazed with a orange marmalade that’ll have you yearning for the next bite.
Once you’ve got the ingredients, all it takes is a 20-minute prep time to put the ingredients together before letting the oven take over and finish the loaf for you. You need this. So go make it!
Tofu Faux French Toast (Gluten-Free)
As you can probably tell from the photo, things are about to get real dreamy around here!
And Savanna definitely wants you in the mood for a groove when you make her tofu faux French toasts, which are both incredibly delicious and also gluten-free thanks to the creative use of tofu.
This recipe requires 45 minutes and, apart from rum extract, which you might’ve never heard of, you’ll need just a handful of basic ingredients.
You’ll be well-rewarded for making these!
Bagel Thin Pesto Sandwiches
Sometimes you’re bestowed with the perfect inspiration you need from traveling the world and seeing new and different ways of doing things.

With this recipe and ingredients in hand, you’ll be able to make some seriously tasty breakfast sandwiches in just 15 minutes.
The process is simple, too; make the pesto, toast the bagels, then spread on hummus and pesto before topping with tomato, greens and seasoning!
Bodega Breakfast Sandwich with Avocado
How about a classic bodega breakfast sandwich without any animal-based ingredients? I’d definitely grab one of those! If we’re on the same page, then look no further than Steven’s recipe and get busy!
Having seen his fair share of bodega breakfast sandwiches while living in New York, Steven decided to whip up his own veganized version featuring vegan bacon, egg and cheese.

Sweet Potato Toast
Okay, so here’s something I could never have imagined. There’s apparently a trendy wave going on with making toast out of sweet potato slices. But hey, if it works, then why the heck not!?
If you fancy trying this, then get yourself started with Sam’s “mini recipe” (essentially 1 ingredient + anything you’d like to add). The only equipment you’ll need is a toaster. Oh yes, and 15 minutes.
Chickpea Flatbread with Garlicky Spinach (Gluten-Free)
I’m always excited to find healthier alternatives to wheat, rye and spelt-based breads, and Evi’s chickpea flatbread with garlicky spinach is a superb option that’s both gluten-free, high in protein, and customizable to your liking.
Get this; apart from water, salt and pepper, the flatbread itself requires only 2 ingredients! Can’t get much simpler than that.
The garlicky spinach uses a few more ingredients, yet they’re all everyday items most of us already have in the kitchen.
40 minutes and you’ll have your very own homemade and healthy flatbread to enjoy!
Cheesy Tofu Breakfast Sandwiches
Have a ravenous appetite and want to start your day off on the right foot? If so, then you need to be biting into Dianne’s incredible cheesy tofu breakfast sandwiches!
These sandwiches feature baked tofu dipped in nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor. And my, oh my, the cheesy goodness doesn’t end there, because you’ll also have a jar of Dianne’s delicious cashew cheese sauce to drizzle over the baked tofu.

Vegan Brunch Breakfast Recipes
Plantain Tempeh Breakfast Hash
By self-admittance, potato hash can put a generous smile on Jackie’s face; heck, it might do the same for you too! BUT, I agree with her that we should switch things up and go for new experiences occasionally.
And hence this formidable plantain tempeh breakfast hash recipe, which is rich in good nutrition and a satiating way to kick off your morning with style!

Here’s the quick low-down: a savory portion of baby roasted potatoes fit for a champion; a lovely-golden tofu scramble that’ll satisfy your cravings to the brim; and—finally—round everything off with a healthy bowl of mixed berries!
At 55 minutes total, it takes a little time to prepare, but the end-result is worth it!
Inspired by Paula Deen’s brunch-stuffed peppers, Annie brings you all the tasty goodness with her veganized recipe, meaning no need for eggs, cheese and dairy products.
This version packs serious flavor with a creamy tofu mixture, yet is much healthier for you.
Breakfast Tacos with Cauliflower (Gluten-Free)

What are you waiting for? Go get busy!
Black Bean and Mushroom Tostadas
Some recipes lend themselves pretty well to being customized with what ingredients you have available at home.
Melissa’s black bean and mushroom vegan tostadas are one such option, and they’re both healthy as well as free of oil, featuring pickled red cabbage and refried black beans.
You’ll have 4 delicious tostadas ready for breakfast in roughly 45 minutes from start to finish!

Lauren’s sweet cherry chia breakfast jar gives you a super healthy and filling meal with a porridge consistency, thanks to the thickening nature of chia seeds once soaked.
It’s delicious and will sustain you with energy throughout your day.
Quinoa Granola with Coconut and Chia Seeds (Gluten-Free)
When you need gluten-free granola, Angela’s quinoa granola with coconut and chia seeds is an excellent choice, being just as delicious as it is crunchy—and pairs perfectly with yogurt for a breakfast parfait or milk for a cereal.
It features various nuts and seeds, including pecans, walnuts, chia and pumpkin seeds and will last for up to a couple weeks.
Chia Pudding with Figs
I don’t often have access to fresh figs, but next time I do, there’s no doubt I’ll need to try Veronica’s chia pudding recipe.
The recipe is simple, requiring 5 simple ingredients. You mix together the chia seeds and spices with your chosen plant milk, then leave it overnight in your fridge and it’ll be ready for serving the following morning.
Chia Pudding with Berry Layers
Should you ever be in the mood to impress someone at the dinner table, Lauren’s chia pudding with berry layers is your 1st class ticket to an enticing home run.

If you’re tired of tofu scramble or just want to reduce your dependency on soy-based products, white beans can make for a fabulous alternative.
This savory breakfast comes together in just 30 minutes; you’ll love it!
Chickpea Omelet Mix
I always welcome veganized “egg” recipes that don’t include tofu, as it leaves us with more options to choose from, especially for those with certain food sensitivities.
So, instead of tofu, Susan has come up with an omelet recipe based on chickpea flour mixed with nutritional yeast, condiments and various spices amongst other complementary ingredients.
One key aspect of this recipe, is that it’s prepared to easily adapt to any cuisine you’re serving it with.
How long does it take to make? How does 15 minutes sound? Go for it!
Basic Tofu Scramble
Personally, I had never tried Kala namak, or black salt, until a special someone introduced it to me in 2017. I was told it had undertones of eggy flavor and that was absolutely correct!
So, guess what, Himalayan black salt is also the superstar in Bianca’s basic tofu scramble, which she says gives the scramble an egg-like aroma and taste.
This epic vegan egg scramble takes 12 minutes with a small handful of ingredients, so you’ll be enjoying a delicious meal in no time!

Chickpea and Onion Omelette
Chickpea, onion and fresh herbs are brought together in Sandra’s recipe to form a spectacular omelette free of raising agents to preserve the best flavor and textures.
This omelette recipe is also quite customizable, so feel free to substitute other fresh ingredients for onion and use your desired combination of herbs.
Asparagus and Mushroom Quiche
A sweet and sugary breakfast can be a dream treat—and can in fact be made quite healthy and nutritious too!

Vegan Pancake Breakfast Recipes
Banana Oat Pancakes (Gluten-Free)
Personally, I’m not the biggest fan of combining fruit with non-fruit items as part of the same meal. But, my goodness, Michaela’s banana oat pancakes could force me to make an exception!
There’s just something so gratifying about making great looking pancakes, then stacking them into a tower!
Michaela shows you how to make some delicious, gluten-free pancakes requiring 3(!) ingredients and 20 minutes. I mean, who can argue with that?
Healthy Protein Pancakes with Raspberry Chia Jam (Gluten-Free)

But hey, the jam is only part of this incredible formula; how about a dreamy peanut butter drizzle to top it all off with?
Silver Dollar Pumpkin Pancakes
What a name! “Vegan silver dollar pumpkin pancakes.” These lovely pancakes are born from Aimee’s terrific recipe, which takes only 10 minutes to prepare.

These pancakes are gluten-free, sweet and savory. They’re filled with delicious cinnamon apple and drizzled with a caramel sauce that is to die for!
Ania knows the caramel sauce can be a bit unhealthy, so she gives you two recipe options to choose from, just in case you lean more to the “healthier side.”
Potato Pancakes (Kartoffelkuchen)
I was very new to the idea of potato-based pancakes when I first saw this one from Gin’s potato pancake recipe. So when she says it’s a fairly unique way to use potatoes, I can’t help but agree.
Tofu is creatively used instead of egg as a binder. And thanks to tofu’s neutral flavor, the taste of potato is allowed to fully come through.
While these special pancakes do take 75 minutes to prepare, you should definitely consider giving them a try, at the very least for a special breakfast occasion with friends or family!
Vegan Porridge Breakfast Recipes
Spiced Breakfast Quinoa Porridge
If you’re a porridge-person, chances are you’ve only experienced porridge made from oats. But did you know you can also make this classic breakfast meal from quinoa?

This lovely porridge requires 7 ingredients and about 30 minutes to prepare.
‘Carrot Cake’ Millet Porridge (Gluten-Free)
A “Carrot cake” millet porridge; it certainly can’t get more fancy than this, can it?
Either way, Lee has come up with a core warming and highly nutritious breakfast recipe topped with walnut pieces and perhaps your favorite fruit of choice.
In case you’ve heard of phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors, Lee does recommend you soak the millet overnight to reduce these components. But if you don’t have time for soaking, just make sure to rinse well before putting the millet to use.
