I’m not a morning person. Never have been, never will be. But since I work and go to school, mornings are a must, which means coffee is a part of my daily-routine. Without fail, I’ll brew myself a cup or run to the nearest Starbucks to get my Caramel Macchiato with soy milk (because I like pretending I’m fancy).
But there are days I sleep in, which then leads to panic because I have to make a difficult decision: do I make a coffee or do I eat?
Normally I choose coffee, which is not a good choice! So I thought to myself, what if there was a way to combine them, coffee and breakfast, into one meal?
Turns out, there are recipes designed for the non-morning people like me that prove all the energy one could need to start the day off with a bang! So here are 11 energizing vegan breakfast recipes to give you a caffeine kick before you head out the door!
Let’s take a look:
I’m as curious as you are. Matcha tea? In a pizza? This one is definitely going on my must-try list. Make sure to substitute the egg to make it truly vegan and you’re good to go!
Quick tip: Upgrade this pizza with our premium 100% pure and organic matcha tea blend!
I’ll be honest, I added this one to the list purely based on how good it looks and sounds. Strawberries, raspberries, carrots, and beets? It’s not only delicious, it’s like a health bomb!
But I’m not just going to leave this heavenly berry drink uncaffeinated! A little green tea or black tea adds a little caffeine and extra yumminess to an already packed smoothie.
You’re sorely missing out if you haven’t given this creamy masterpiece a try. Peanut butter and coffee with a hint of banana is literally the best thing since sliced bread was invented.
Ok, this is another example of me choosing looks over everything else. But look at it! Not only are they pretty, they’re so light and fluffy you’ll forget they’re vegan!
To caffeinate this one, substitute some of the almond milk with darjeeling tea to infuse the pancakes and compliment the sweet strawberries.
It may look like a cheat day snack, but don’t be fooled! This protein-packed breakfast is perfect for a quick meal before work. Need some caffeine? Make sure to substitute some of the almond milk in the chocolate layer with your favorite coffee brew!
Simple. Sweet. Divine. It has banana, which is part of a healthy breakfast, but who cares about that it’s got chocolate (points if you get the reference!) and more importantly, coffee!
I’m going to cheat on this a little, as I refuse to add anything to this amazing blueberry muffin recipe. But muffins are the perfect food to pair with a cup of coffee or tea which is why this recipe makes the list. Plus it’s the epitome of breakfast food. You need muffins!
I’ll be honest, I’m not a very big fan of PSL’s, so when fall comes around I don’t jump on the PSL fan train. But this parfait has converted me to the PSL life. It’s perfectly light with just enough coffee to give you that early morning kick.
Perfect year-round. Do I really need to explain why this is going to be delicious?
Warning: This is more of a treat than a breakfast so pair this with the muffin above and you’re in heaven!
Sometimes you just need some waffles in the morning. They’re wholesome and nostalgic, and this recipe just one-upped it by adding banana bread to it!
Caffeinate this one by adding some cold brew coffee into the batter before pressing it into a scrumptious waffle.
This is honestly my favorite recipe on this list. When I found it, I gave it a try and it was the best oatmeal I’ve had in my life. As someone who loves Earl Grey, this recipe was a no-brainer, and an added hint of either rosewater or vanilla makes this perfect!
