Plant-based diets are one of the fastest growing dietary trends right now. And whatever your reason is for adopting a plant-based diet, I think we can all agree that eating more fruits and vegetables is a good idea.
I don’t know about you, but breakfast has always been difficult for me to eat. I can’t stomach the idea of sitting down and eating a big, greasy, heavy breakfast which is why I love vegan breakfast recipes.
Vegan breakfast are usually on the lighter side (compared to something like bacon, eggs and sausage) but highly nutritious, satisfying and delicious.
If you’re looking for new ideas to add to your vegan breakfast recipe toolkit, then you’ll love these 15 delicious recipes that are all easy to whip up and taste amazing.

#13 – Did someone say “tacos for breakfast”? Um, yes please. These Vegan Breakfast Tacos from The Cook Report are light, tasty, easy to make and high in nutritional value.
#14 – Oatmeal raisin cookies are a popular grab ‘n go breakfast option, but unfortunately, they’re usually packed with added sugars and aren’t much than healthier than grabbing a chocolate chip cookie for breakfast.
