Donuts might not seem like a Monday morning sort of breakfast, but these gluten-free, vegan donuts are baked, making them not only healthier, but also easier to get on the table when you’re short on time (heating up the deep-fat fryer is definitely not something you want to do between finding everyone socks and trying to find a dry towel). Flavored with maple extract and a coconut glaze, these donuts are a lovely way to get your week started right – and easy to take on the go if you’re in a hurry.

breakfast tacos

You’ve heard of breakfast burritos, so why not breakfast tacos? Filled with a combination of black beans, spiced tofu, pomegranate, avocado, and salsa, these little tacos are a great, egg-free choice for anyone who prefers a savory morning meal.

Instead of oatmeal, protein-rich quinoa is at the base of this breakfast bowl, topped with peanut butter, maple syrup, and coconut flakes. Use almond milk or your favorite vegan milk to make the creamy porridge, which is just as tasty hot as it is cold.
