Vegan Breakfast Recipes
Vegan breakfast recipes have proven to be one of the places I struggle most. It is hard for me to come up with family friendly recipes that do not contain eggs! Eggs are so quick and easy but now that we are eliminating them, we need to be creative. This recipe is similar to a quinoa porridge or overnight oats, however, the texture of the quinoa remains the same, as it doesn’t absorb a lot of liquid the way oats do. Keep that in mind if this is your fist breakfast bowl recipe
Vegan Quinoa Breakfast Bowl
I have been in love with Overnight Oats for a while now (check out my favorite version: Easy Overnight Oats). It is so easy to put together the night before and grab on the way out the door in the morning. But it was time for something new. Enter the Quinoa Breakfast Bowl!
Quinoa contains all 9 essential amino acids, and is high in fiber, magnesium and many other vitamins and minerals. To many it is considered a perfect food. It is gluten free, high in protein and is approved for Clean Eating!
This Quinoa Breakfast bowl is easy to put together with leftover quinoa and it can be heated in the microwave. It’s the perfect make ahead breakfast!
Note: I would not recommend eating it cold. It tastes much better warm 😉

This vegan quinoa bowl is made with quinoa, almond milk and maple syrup as a base. I added apples, cinnamon, pomegranates and hazelnuts, but you can add anything.
Here are just a few ideas:
Berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
Apples or Pears
Raisins, Dried Cherries or unsweetened Cranberries
Sliced Almonds, sunflower seeds or hazelnuts
Hemp hearts, Chia seeds or Flax seeds

Simmer over medium heat until warmed and the apples are slightly soft. Add more almond milk as needed. Do not let it burn
