These five-ingredient vegan breakfast ideas are all easy-to-make and super delicious. When tallying upingredients, I don’t count water, salt or pepper, because those are three things thatI’m assuming you have handy in your kitchen, regardless of how stocked your pantry is.

There are sweet and even a couple of savory vegan breakfasts included below, so you can choose the recipes that speak to you!

Vegan Breakfasts with Five Ingredients or Less

Instant Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal Apples

1.Cinnamon Apple Steel Cut Oatmeal

This easy, Instant Pot recipe has exactly five ingredients, not counting water. Just mix and bring to pressure when you wake up. By the time you’re showered and dressed, your piping hot steel cut oats will be ready to serve. Sweeten with maple syrup or a dollop of applesauce – your choice!

Avocado Toast with Radishes and Cilantro

2.Avocado Toast

There are so many ways to buildyour ideal avocado toast. A basic recipe is just avocado, sliced onto toast, maybe topped with some sea salt and black pepper, but you can mix things up for fancier options! I like my avocado toast with a drizzle of sriracha sauce and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. Care2′s Katie Medlock has even more delicious ideas for dressing up avocado toast here.

Quinoa Porridge with Fruit and Nuts

3.Quinoa Porridge

Who says that quinoa is just for supper? If you haven’t had sweet quinoa, you are in for a breakfast treat! Just simmer with the vegan milk of your choice and add your favorite mix-ins. Easy peasy, andthere’s no need for more than four or five ingredients total.

The Elvis - Vegan Breakfast Idea

5. The Elvis

Sometimes, a little spin on a simple idea is the best breakfast. Instead of peanut butter andbanana on toast,use whole wheat tortilla as the base for this quick, easy and filling vegan breakfast. You can even swap in different nut- or seed-butters, if that’s your jam.

Oatmeal Cookie Granola

6. Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Granola

This is a delicious make-ahead vegan breakfast to have on hand. It keeps for up to a week in an airtight container, so make it on Sunday forsprinkling over vegan yogurt or dousing in vegan milk all week long. Or eat it straight from the jar! I won’t judge.

Avocado Cream Cheese

Bust out those bagels, because this five-ingredient vegan cream cheese is going to blow you away.This spread will keep for a few days in the fridge, so make it on Sunday night, and you’re set for breakfasts for half of the week. Serveyour bagel up with a schmear or add sliced tomato, cucumber, onions and lettuce. Build your own bagel adventure!

Sweet Creamy Oatmeal

Who needs added sugar or heavy cream to make a bowl of rich, sweet oatmeal? Not you! The base for this recipe is just regular ol’ rolled oats and mashed bananas, and you can add your toppings of choice to make your own concoction.

Ginger Peach Smoothie

A little bit sweet, a little bit spicy. This smoothie is a decadent way to start the day! Throw in a handful of leafy greens to get a veggie boost, too, if that’s your thing. Either way, this is an easy breakfast to make when you’re in a hurry. You can sip it in the car or on the train.

Chia pudding is a filling, versatile breakfast. This recipe gives you some options, so you can mix and match ingredients, depending on what you have on hand.Chocolate for breakfast? Don’tmind if I do!Mix it up the night before, and breakfast will be ready when you wake up in the morning.

Vegan Coffee Milk

13. Coffee Milk

Maybe you’re like me and aren’t a big breakfast-eater. You can still start the day with a little bit of protein and fiber with this refreshing cold brew drink. Instead of vegan milk, you actually blend up your coffee with dates and hempseeds for a sweet, creamy coffee drink that’s a lot healthier than store-bought iced coffees.

This is a healthy, filling and grain-free vegan breakfast recipe, and if you leave out the optional hemp hearts, it contains exactly five ingredients.

Some look interesting. I add spices, nuts, etc to my oatmeal every morning and that's OK for me.
