If you need an easy healthy breakfast, then my Vegan Breakfast Bowl is exactly what you need. Full of fruits, nuts, and with gluten free oats, this is not only nourishing but also delicious. If you like, you can also make this an amazing quinoa breakfast recipe by substituting the oats. Sprinkle your favorite nut butter over this Breakfast Bowl and be energized for the day.
Fresh fruits are winners. Still it’s somewhat difficult for me at times to get my daily dose in. This is why, about two weeks ago, I started integrating more fruits into my breakfast. But as I am a slow starter in the mornings, it had to be quick and easy – and this Breakfast Bowl was born. I’ll admit it: this was not intended to be a blog recipe initially. But I began liking it so much that I just had to share it with you guys. The main component are gluten-free oats that are cooked in coconut milk. This one combines with fruits and nuts. My favorite combination is the one you can see here: with blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. They go well together with almonds.
Making a Quinoa Breakfast Bowl
For extra flavor, I cooked the gluten free oats in coconut milk. I know that many people also look for inspiration for quinoa breakfast recipes. Well, then I suggest to use quinoa instead of the gluten free oats. You might have to adjust the amount of milk and the cooking time a bit according to the package information on your quinoa.
As you can see, I finally sprinkle this vegan Breakfast Bowl with coconut flakes and some nut butter. The one you can see is cashew butter. But I tried several ones, from almond to hazelnut butters – they all work excellent. If you need an allergy-friendly version, go for sunflower or pumpkin seeds and sunflower seed butter. This one probably will come a bit too firm, so you’ll have to use a bit of water to thin before giving it over the bowl. It’s all super-quick and super-delicious and gives me an early morning energy-boost. Truly a great way to kick-off your day!
