20 Vegan Holiday Breakfast Recipes

Pouring syrup onto one of our vegan breakfast recipes

It’s Christmas week! And that means it’s time for my gift to you: Food.

I love sharing recipe round-ups this time of year, but because we have SO many recipes, I’ve decided to break them into categories instead of doing one giant post like I normally do. Hopefully this makes it more manageable for you and gives you more organized lists to choose from.

I’m starting with breakfast, which I’ve narrowed down to my 20 favorite, most festive recipes. Next up are entrées and sides, followed by desserts. Let’s do this!

    The rosemary blueberry coconut oil scones are the best! I don’t normally like scones but they sounded good for Christmas morning. Plus, they are a minimalist baker recipe and all the recipes that I have made from you/Dana/the posts are really good. And these were so good they all disappeared and I had to make the recipe again today. It turned out wonderful again ( sometimes the second time I make something g it doesn’t work as well). This is my new favorite. I’m a muffin maker at heart but now expanding to these delicious scones! Thanks, Minimalist Baker!!!

    It would be so helpful if you could note which of these recipes, if any, are gluten free. I read all about the toasted coconut pancakes, got excited – and then I read ‘spelt flour.’

    Hi Dana,
    I had made the gingerbread granola for my office staff Christmas gift. It turned out awesome as all your recipes. Everyone loved it.( I wanted to post a photo, I guess I can’t in here! )
    Thank you so much for such wonderful creative ideas!
    Keep them coming.

    Happy Holidays and Season’s Greetings to You and John!

    Thank you for posting this, Dana! I will be making the whole wheat pancakes Christmas morning for my family! I also wanted to say thank you for all of the beautiful recipes you have created. As the only vegan in the family and being 21, I have a lot to prove when cooking and baking. Your recipes have been a hit every single time! I’m making your Apple pie and pumpkin pie for Christmas eve, your pumpkin cookies for Christmas day, and the pancakes. No one can tell they are vegan! Have a very merry Christmaso!

    This will be our 3rd Christmas morning in a row enjoying the delicious cinnamon rolls! I’m cooking for a crowd this time, so I will be doubling the recipe! Thank you for all you do, Dana, and Merry Christmas. :)

    That butternut squash banana bread sounds awesome, can’t wait to make it. Love the display and the list layout, beautiful work!

    I have to put in my vote for those cornmeal pancakes…I made them shortly after you posted them because my husband had been having a cornbread craving, and they were AWESOME!

  8. Rachel says

    With all these delicious breakfast ideas, my husband and I will just end up eating 3-4 breakfasts on Christmas! I’m especially excited for the cinnamon rolls (which scream holiday breakfast), the biscuits and gravy, and the haystacks, but may have to include a smoothie in there, too…. you know, balance ;) Thank you for all the spectacular ideas and Merry Christmas :D

    You know, when I think breakfast, I always go with scrambled eggs and bacon in my brain. Which clearly is NOT vegan. But for me, it’s the hardest meal of the day to make vegan. But eggs do scream breakfast to me still so I appreciate all these options you have posed. Nifty. With the coconut baked oatmeal going to the top of the list for me!!
