Common Questions About Vegan Breakfast Ideas:
What foods do vegans eat for breakfast?
Granola, porridge, overnight oats, pancakes, muffins, tofu scramble, vegan bacon, and the list of recipes I've provided in this post show that vegans love variety when it comes to vegan breakfast ideas!
What can I eat for breakfast without eggs or oats?
Can vegans eat peanut butter?
There is no butter in peanut butter! Peanut butter is made by blending peanuts until it turns into a smooth buttery spread. The vast majority of peanut butter varieties have no animal ingredients, making them a suitable and enjoyable addition to a vegan diet. If you do not like peanuts or have a peanut allergy, other nut butter options are available such as almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower seed butter.
What can I buy a vegan for breakfast?
Of course, there are a ton of recipes included in this post above, but these days there are also so many fun vegan products available in stores! Brands like Just Egg, Beyond Sausage, Earth Balance, and Yves all have great products that can be incorporated into a vegan breakfast and transformed into fun creations like vegan breakfast burritos or a classic plate of (vegan) bacon and eggs.
Is Yogurt Vegan?
Yogurt is usually made from cow's milk but there are vegan yogurts which use plant sources like almonds, soy, coconuts, peas, oats, or cashews. My favorite is Silk brand Almond Rich Yogurt
