13 vegan breakfast bean recipes coming your way! I reached out to my blogger friends to suggest some vegan bean breakfast recipes. I’m thankful I was able to round up the 13 delicious and filling high protein vegan breakfast ideas.
My husband and I are trying to switch over to eating 2 meals + snack instead of 3 meals per day. I’m somebody concerned with nutrition and knows the benefits of eating beans. I try to ensure I eat beans at every meal, even more so now that we’re only going to eat 2 meals instead of 3.
Why are legumes and beans so healthy? They’re the second-healthiest food group, after vegetables. Legumes offer a lot of nutrition, fiber and satiety to meals without having tons of calories. The also cause the ‘second meal effect’, which is the effect of causing blood sugar at your subsequent meal to rise slower (even if you don’t eat legumes that time).
Overall, legumes are associated with healthy weights. The healthiest societies eat beans on a regular basis, if not every day. I my nutritarian mind, the healthiest meals includes legumes. Unfortunately, sometimes beans can be difficult to fit into every meal idea.
Breakfast generally has two options: savory and sweet. I lean more towards sweet when making breakfasts (cinnamon rolls, banana bread, smoothies). However, beans lean towards the savory side. I’m glad to say you can enjoy both a savory and a sweet breakfast if you want to eat beans for breakfast.
We’ll start with the sweet vegan breakfast bean recipes. Next I’ll give you the more traditional ways of eating beans for breakfast.
Sweet Vegan Breakfast Bean Recipes
Chocolate and peanut butter and beans for breakfast? What a treat. I can’t wait to try this easy, 7-ingredient recipe for breakfast sometime soon. I love how it seems easy to multiply for multiple people, and potentially even make the night before. If you’re like me, you could replace the salted peanuts with unsalted and cocoa powder with carob. *wink*wink
No bananas? Tired of banana bread? Bake this apple and ginger sweet bread. The flavors are perfect for anytime you need some comfort food. It’s healthy and easy to make and requires less than 10 ingredients .Plus, it’s free of added sugar, oil and salt. It’s so delicious it doesn’t even need a spread.
This mung bean breakfast porridge sounds a little kooky, but overall I can’t wait to give it a try. Complete the porridge with carob, cinnamon, applesauce and non-dairy milk. If you don’t have mung beans available, you can use any legume. I’m hoping to try this with white beans or chickpeas.
I love carrot cake its traditional form, easy microwaveable form or smoothie form. This carrot cake smoothie is appealing because it makes breakfast beans vegan, healthy and colorful. Walnuts, banana, carrot… you’ll forget your eating one of your daily doses of beans.
Chocolate + breakfast + beans? You bet. You’ll love this vegan chocolate pudding recipe that’s healthy enough for breakfast. My sugar free pudding is transformed into a smoothie bowl with the addition of granola or muesli. This is the ultimate healthy breakfast. Now that’s some good vegan breakfast protein, my friends!
Brownies don’t seem like a regular breakfast recipe, but I’ll eat most breakfasts as long as they’re nourishing… which is exactly what these brownies are. They’re special-diet approved as they’re gluten free, refined sugar free and protein-packed. I hope you join me in enjoying a brownie for breakfast sometime soon.
Savory Vegan Breakfast Bean Recipes
Load up on earthy sweet potatoes and tasty turnips in this breakfast hash combined with supple chickpeas. Make your beans for breakfast healthy by omitting the salt and oil. If you want to add crunch and little char to your hash, try broiling it the oven for a bit instead of relying on oil.
This chickpea scramble is for those who want to feel like they put thought into breakfast but just rolled out of bed. The vegan scramble uses chickpea flour to make a breakfast in 15 minutes. So quick, it’s almost magic. Almost.
P.S. I recommend ditching the oil (and salt) and learn how to saute onions without oil instead.
The title says it all! Elegant beans, crispy toast and on your plate in less time than it takes to preheat an oven. I love the variety of legumes and grains included (peas and butter beans; corn and wheat) combined with fatty avocado. She is making beans for breakfast healthy, tasty and easy, folks.
Chickpea flour is one of my favorite ways to add beans, fiber and protein for breakfast. Rebecca shows you how to make an eggless chickpea flour omelette with it. I can’t wait to try this recipe, and I hope you will try it, too.
I can’t wait to try this recipe for 2 reasons: 1) It’s a scramble made with white beans and 2) ALMOND. BACON. I’ve heard of eggplant bacon and coconut bacon, but never almond bacon! I can’t wait to load up on my healthy bacon, veggie white bean scramble in the near future.
P.S. Again, you can avoid the oil! Learn how to saute onions without it.
Vegan frittata bites are perfect for busy foodies. They’re packed with protein, spices, veggies and taste. I love how they’re meal-prep friendly and can be enjoyed at a relaxing sit-down brunch feast or on-the-go. I might have to buy a muffin tin for my Portuguese apartment so I can give these a try.
Last but not least on my roundup are Moong Dal Chilla. I couldn’t create a roundup of the best high protein vegan breakfast recipes without including an Indian recipe. Moong dal is another name for split mung beans, but I imagine you could use whole mung beans with a similar result. If you use a non-stick frying pan, you can likely cook this recipe with no added oil.
