Breakfast Bowl [vegan, gluten free]

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.

Otherwise, this combination also works very well.

Of course, you have to make sure that the quinoa is really well cooked and has absorbed all the liquid. The last thing we want is a soggy mush in our bowl.

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! You’ll feel full of healthy energy that lasts.

AMAZING!!!! I hate oatmeal as my daughter does as well but I decided to make this anyway. Omg we both cleaned our bowls and my husband and son loved it too. Thanks for such a great recipe!

This looks amazing! Why do your oats look baked and crubchy as opposed to soft after cooking? I did not see baking in the recipe? Thanks! Sonja

Hi Sonja. The oats are cooked, they just have absorbed all the liquid. Cheers!

I saw this yummy bowl online last night and decided I was going to make it in the morning. Unfortunately I didn’t have coconut milk on hand so I tried almond milk instead. It still came out really good. Next time I will definitely try cooking the oats in cocunuy milk, I’m sure it’s very tasteless too! Thank you for the recipe! :)
