Wondering what vegans eat for breakfast?
Stuck in a rut and looking for inspiration?
Browse my breakfast gallery to see what we eat in our house.
Shreddies, and Oatibix or Weetabix are all vegan-friendly and relatively low sugar, while Shredded Wheat have no added sugar at all. Nestle Cheerios and Curiously Cinnamon are also vegan-friendly though a bit higher in sugar – but unfortunately Nestle Cheerios contain the colour annatto (although at the time of writing the Aldi version does not). Kelloggs Rice Crispies seem to be fortified with Vitamin D derived from sheep’s wool, making them not suitable for vegans.
Soya milk is now widely available in UK supermarkets and is the most affordably priced, but also try oat milk, rice milk, or almond milk on your breakfast and see what you prefer. Choose one that’s fortified with B12 unless you’re taking a supplement.
Why not try some fridge porridge, or make your own Crunchy Cranberry-Almond Granola?
Alternatively the New York Bagel Company’s bagels are vegan-friendly – consider serving with a glass of fortified non-dairy milk to ensure you get your B12 – or make some pink milk.
On the weekend, how about treating the kids to some Quick Coconut-Oil Pancakes or make a full vegan fry-up with mushrooms, tomatoes, hashbrowns, Fry’s Traditional Sausages, and Heinz Reduced Sugar & Salt Beanz.
Need a healthy breakfast you can eat on the run? How about a Carrot-Quinoa Muffin?
Recipes coming soon for Fridge Porridge, Cinnamon-Banana Not-Eggy Bread, mini Pains-aux-raisins and many more.
The question of how vegans take their tea and coffee is certainly breakfast-related, but deserves a page of it’s own…
Please do leave a comment below – I’d love to hear what you eat to start your day the plant-based way.
