For the days when you’re not sure what to eat or don’t have time, give one of these easy vegan breakfast ideas a try.
Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day. It’s the first meal of the day and choosing something good for you can set you up for the rest of the day. We don’t always have time to whip up a big breakfast, some days we don’t even have time to sit down before whisking out the door to work.
For the days when you’re not sure what to eat or don’t have time, give one of these easy vegan breakfast ideas a try. They’re quick to make and will help you fuel your day right.
1. Peanut Butter and Banana Oatmeal
Add ¼ cup oats, 1 tablespoon peanut butter, 1 teaspoon flaxseed meal and ½ Cup water to a pot on the stove. Bring To a boil and then simmer until the oats are fully cooked, stirring often. Remove from stove and add to a bowl. Top with a sliced banana
TIP: If you’re in a rush use instant oats – which cook faster (but always choose an unflavoured option as the flavoured ones contain added sugar). If you have more time, try steel cut oats which have more fibre.
2. Avo Toast with hemp seeds
There’s never a bad time to eat an avocado toast! Toast 1 piece of wholegrain or sourdough bread and top with ½ Avocado sliced. Top with a squeeze of lemon juice, salt and pepper and 1 teaspoon of hemp seeds for added nutrients.
3. Overnight berry chia pudding
Add some ingredients to a glass jar, pop in the fridge and wake up to breakfast made! with this easy berry chia pudding.
Combine ¼ cup chia seeds with 1 cup almond milk and a tablespoon of maple syrup. Mix well and add 1 cup of berries. Smoosh the berries into the chia mix and transfer to a glass jar. Put in the fridge overnight. When you’re ready to eat, top with more berries and enjoy.
4. Trek Chunk Breakfast Bowl
We discovered that our trek chunks can make quite delicious cereal! Plus they’re packed with 12g of protein per packet so this makes for a super quick and filling breakfast.
Add one packet of trek chunks to a bowl, top with some almond milk. Add some cut up fruit like strawberries or bananas. Enjoy
5. Cocoa Peanut Trek Chunks Smoothie Bowl
Remember when we shared this delicious smoothie bowl recipe? We added our trek chunks, blitzed them up for some added protein (and flavour). To make, blend up 1 packet of cocoa peanut trek chunks, ½ cup almond milk, 1 frozen banana and a tablespoon of peanut butter. Add to a bowl and top with some fruit and nuts.
Tip: For a grab and go breakfast, add in another ½ cup of almond milk to turn this smoothie bowl into a smoothie you can pop into a travel mug and drink on your way.
