Vegan Breakfast Made Easy: Say Hello to Muffins!
Whip up a batch of vegan muffins on the weekend for a quick vegan breakfast that you can grab and go all week long.
One of the complaints that I hear from folks who are thinking about dipping a toe into a vegan diet is that it takes too much time. I hear ya! Like any lifestyle change, a vegan diet can seem daunting at first. The trick is to find time-saving tricks to replace non-vegan convenience foods with healthy whole foods. For an easy vegan breakfast, a batch of muffins can make your mornings a breeze.
I know, muffins aren’t always the healthiest food. Many muffin recipes are basically cupcakes without frosting on them. For someone new to eating vegan or who normally grabs a pre-packaged granola bar, though, a batch of homemade muffins is definitely an improvement over greasy non-vegan breakfast foods.
A batch of muffins also makes a great vegan breakfast treat for holiday house guests, so grab your mixing bowl, preheat that oven, and let’s make some muffins!
