Healthy vegan breakfast ideas
We are all busy and often don’t have the time to stand in the kitchen for hours to cook a feast. Most store-bought fast-food products contain empty calories and a lot of fat, so that’s not a good option either. Here I prepared three healthy vegan breakfast ideas that are easy to make, delicious and affordable. Whether it’s a breakfast or a quick afternoon snack, these three recipes show how versatile a piece of toast can be. A toast doesn’t need to be boring, it’s all about the right toppings.
1. Toast with avocado, mustard, and black cumin seeds
At first, I made a toast with avocado slices, dijon mustard, lime juice, and black cumin seeds on top. Avocados are not only rich in healthy fats but they are furthermore also very delicious. In my opinion, they taste best when you serve them together with lime or lemon juice. You can also add sesame seeds or nuts like walnuts or pine nuts on top. My favorite is black cumin seeds (Nigella Sativa) which are very popular in Egypt and apparently these tiny seeds have many powerful substances and are also often called a miracle herb.
2. Toast with tofu and tomato slices
Furthermore, I made a toast with fried tofu slices, dijon mustard, tomatoes, and soy sauce. Slice tofu into cubes and fry them with a little bit coconut oil in a pan. You could also add a splash of soy sauce and some pepper to taste. Finally, serve with sliced cherry tomatoes and dijon mustard.
3. Toast with a homemade chocolate/peanut butter spread
And because sweet toasts are awesome as well for breakfast, I made a toast with a homemade chocolate/peanut butter spread and banana slices. I was literally addicted to Nutella in the past, that’s why I am very happy that I now have my own vegan chocolate spread recipe. It tastes so rich and chocolatey, you will most likely love it as much as I do.
And the best part? It’s low in calories and fat, yet it tastes rich and delicious! You can use it in many different recipes, for example, pour it over vegan brownies. Find the recipe for the chocolate spread below.
What are your favorite healthy vegan breakfast ideas?
Homemade Chocolate Spread
- 1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp powdered peanut butter (*see recipe notes)
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 tbsp water or add more maple syrup to taste
- pinch of salt
- Add all ingredients to a bowl and stir with a whisk until smooth.
- Ready is your homemade chocolate spread! Tastes awesome with banana slices on toast!
- I am using this brand of peanut flour. You can also use PB 2 powdered peanut butter instead. You could also use your favorite nut butter (or seed butter) of choice (e.g. hazelnut butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter etc) instead of peanut flour. In this case, you will need to skip the water.

I was wondering if you found a hazelnut flour?
Or do you know something like PB2 but with a hazelnut flavor, I would really like a hazelnut powder but I can’t find anything 🙁
Thank you and I am very exciting to try this!!!
Hi Mara, no I haven’t found hazelnut powder. You can check out my vegan Nutella recipe where you can use hazelnut butter. 🙂
Why not buy some quality hazelnuts, roast them lightly, then put them in a spice grinder to make into powder in small batches. I’ve made chickpea flower this way, and almond flour too. I don’t know why I am 59 and only recently realized this. 🙂

Can I use almond flour instead peanut butter? I’m allergic to peanuts
Hello Rachel, yes, you can use almond butter or any other nut/seed butter of choice as mentioned in the recipe notes. Hope this helps! 🙂
Thanks so much for a quick, easy and versatile recipe. So many options with so many flours/meals/butters to use. I made it today with peanut butter and it was fantastic. I’m not vegan but I can’t eat dairy, and this is such a fantastic option!
oops – sorry forgot the rating! TJ
I am so glad you liked the recipe! Thanks for your great feedback. 🙂
You’re a genius! Keep up the good work!!
Thank you very much, Carol!
What kind of cocoa powder do you recommend me to buy? Because there is so many and I do not know which one i should buy ???? should I look for the ones that have leas sugar percentage?
I use unsweetened cocoa powder. 🙂
So I was trying to make hazelnut-y chocolate spread back few days ago and (pretty much) failed so i was left with 3 cups of hazelnut flour/mush in the fridge cause I HATED the spread that I came up with. So I accidentally found your blog and when I saw this recipe I just had to go for it. And let me tell you: Tastes amazing!!!! Thank you so so much 🙂 keep up the good work!
So glad to hear you liked my recipe, Tina 🙂
This is a fantastic-looking spread! I had a thought.. do you think using hazelnut flour in place of the peanut flour would give it more of a ‘Nutella-y’ flavor? I’ve never worked with either kind of flour, so not sure how much it would impact the taste.
Hey, that’s an interesting question. I never tried hazelnut flour, but I really like the idea and now I am very curious to find out. The spread tastes very delicious with peanut flour but it might taste even better with hazelnut flour! 🙂
Do let me know if you try it! I’m in North Africa for a bit and don’t have access to any of the ingredients listed, let alone hazelnut flour, but plan to give it a try when I’m State-side again!
I will need to order the hazelnut flour online but I will let you know once I try it out 🙂

Oh Ela, your blog is looking stunning! And I love your pin. Some people say to hide the pin image, so I go half and half but I don’t really want to hide it, what do you think! Also, I think I can’t choose and must make all of these. Off to pin! Dee xx.
Thanks for your compliment Dee! Why hide it, I won’t do that. So glad you stopped by and said Hi 🙂
What is partially defatted peanut flour? Is there a substitute for this? Whole wheat flour?
Hi Christin, you can use “PB2 powdered peanut butter” instead. It contains some sugar and salt but I like it very much too. If you can’t buy it, just use more cocoa powder. Hope this helps.
Hi again, I have linked the product I am using in the Recipe notes
That is a great tip especially to those new to the blogosphere. Simple but very precise info… Many thanks for sharing this one. A must read article!
