I like eating oats for breakfast as they’re filling and filled with fiber. Throughout the winter nothing beats a hot bowl of oatmeal. But as it’s now summer, I crave something cooler. It takes the same amount of time to prepare as regular oatmeal and is just as filling, rich in fiber, and delicious! I tend to add whatever nuts and seeds I already have in my pantry, so feel free to improvise. My recipe is a little different each time but pumpkin seeds and shredded coconut are my go-to’s!
This is one of my favorite recipes and I have for breakfasts multiple times a week. What is your favorite way of preparing oats in the summer?
Some mornings I wake up instantly craving sweet and fluffy pancakes. As you may have noticed, I like to put a healthy touch to “unhealthy” meals so I can enjoy them whenever I want, without feeling guilty.
The pancakes are perfectly fluffy, creamy, and tasty. I topped them with some coconut chia pudding (imitating whip cream, not the real deal but still good) and some fresh strawberries. It was a filling breakfast that completely satisfied my morning cravings.
I hope you’ll try this delicious and healthy breakfast soon, make sure to tag me if you do!
I’ve recently come up with a new chia pudding recipe that I think beats my previous low-fat oat milk recipe. This version uses coconut milk which makes all the difference!
It’s really easy to make. Start with a can of organic full fat coconut in a bowl and mix in 3 tablespoons of chia seeds and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or powder (if you like some spice to it – add a tsp. cinnamon). After thoroughly mixing it, place it in an airtight container in the fridge for at least 12 hours. Try to stir it a few times within this time period for best results.
I enjoy mine with oatmeal and as a base for smoothie bowls but you can easily enjoy it as is! You can also easily serve it as a healthier dessert. Try it with raspberry compote or fresh strawberries. This has become one of my fridge essentials and will likely become one of yours after trying it!
I can’t imagine a more satisfying breakfast than oatmeal. I love that it’s filling, wholesome, healthy, and the variety of toppings makes me never get tired of it.
I like to top my morning bowls with fresh fruits like strawberries, bananas, blueberries, or kiwis. To add an extra creamy touch I add chia pudding or nut butters. I’m also a sucker for fruit compotes. It’s very easy to make – all you do is cook up some frozen fruits with (plenty) of sugar on top and cook it until it’s a thick mass. You can eat it cold or hot – as you like it. My favourite fruit compotes is apple, raspberry, and rhubarb.
But my favourite topping must be my homemade granola (recipe here)! The crunchy nutty sweetness fits perfectly with the wholesome oat flavour.
and not to forget! I love topping my bowls with chickpea cookie dough. It’s protein dense and very creamy and delicious! You’ll have to try it!
What’s your guys favourite oatmeal trick? Let me know!
If you like a protein dense breakfast but don’t want to eat eggs this recipe will be a life saver. This is one of my favorite breakfasts as it’s easy to eat with lots of vegetables. The texture is very similar to scrambled eggs and if you add black salt it’s hard to tell the difference.
You can add all kind of vegetables to your scrambled tofu but my favorites are red bell peppers, mushrooms, and fresh spinach. It goes well with ketchup but I prefer to engulf mine in salsa (I’m a salsa freak, sorry not sorry).
Enjoy it on rye bread, toast bread, or as is! Don’t forget the salsa! 😉
Hi Guys <33 I thought I would share some of the really basic and easy breakfasts i have had recently. Veganism is not about chia puddings, smoothie bowls, and glutenfree porridge. It can be done very simple!
I recently made this yummy soy lemon yoghurt bowl topped with topped with oat flakes, chia seeds, and walnuts. To accompany it I had two pieces of “knækbrød”; one topped with avocado and salt and the other with cream cheese and green onion. With a nice cup of chai tea, this was a great way to start my day on an unseasonably cold morning.
This is a bowl of oats, granola, banana, and raisins topped with oat milk. I complemented it with a bun topped with raspberry marmalade and hummus with tomato slices, respectively.
I made these three-ingredient pancakes for my boyfriend on Valentine’s Day. All I did was mash two bananas in a bowl with oats and added oat milk until it reached pancake batter consistency. I cooked them on low heat in a non-stick pan without oil then topped them strawberries and chunks of,chocolate. Super creamy and super easy.
I’ve been on a whole grain kick recently. I eat them in a bowl of oats, banana, berries, and oat milk.
I hope my vegan breakfast ideas inspire you to create your own simple, highly-satisfying creations!
I have only recently discovered the healthy, delicious joys of chia pudding. I love its unique consistency and am thrilled whenever someone serves it as a desert. It’s also easy to mash up the night before and have as a breakfast. Here is my go to recipe.
Viola! That’s my super easy homemade chia pudding recipe.
My body has learned to crave healthy food that tastes unhealthy! I like my breakfast sweet but also appreciate some vegetables in the morning. Waffles always satisfy my cravings as I can mix healthy things into the batter and still get awesome waffles! See my recipe for Spinach Avocado Waffles
The girly side of me is obsessed with the beautiful pink color the root beet adds to regular waffles. I was close to naming these waffles “Princess Waffles” but rediscovered my integrity at the last minute.
On a normal day I enjoy eating waffles as a snack but on a cozy weekend morning I top them with pumpkin seeds, coconut flour, maple syrup and a little yogurt mixed up with vanilla.
When you grate the root beets a food processor will do the trick, if you do it manually REMEMBER an apron; otherwise you’ll look like Ted Bundy before he’d clean himself up)
When my mornings are stressful I need my breakfast to be quick and healthy. This means oatmeal, yogurt, and toast. These simple staples are easy to spice up in a healthy way with fruit, seeds, veggies and nuts.
My favorite yogurt is Alpro’s lemon flavor. I’m addicted to all things citrus and this one has a subtle and mild sweet and sour balance (it does contain added sugar – sometimes a girl gotta live). I love a nice big bowl of yoghurt topped with bananas, oats, seeds, and walnuts.
I’ve also been a toast obsession recently. I use a neutral vegan crème cheese as a base and add spinach, cucumber, and salt.
As vegans, we are often at a loss as to what to eat for breakfast that isn’t either raw fruits and vegetables or incredibly expensive/time consuming meals like eggs Benedict with seitan Canadian bacon.I want more people to hit that happy medium that sustains them both through the day and their vegan journey. No need getting burnt out on raw fruits or spending an hour cooking breakfast (not that there’s anything wrong with that every once in a while). Just keep it simple, quick, and satisfying with these ideas.
