5 Easy Pegan Breakfast Recipes

The pegan diet (a hybrid of Paleo and vegan eating styles) has been growing in popularity recently, and seems to have a lot of merits for your health and wellbeing. When you think about it, paleo and vegan lifestyles have a way of cancelling out the potential downfalls of each other. While, when taken to extremes, paleo can become extremely meat-heavy and veganism extremely carb-heavy, eating both paleo AND vegan seems to have a balancing effect.

What’s left when you remove grains, dairy and meat? Lots of veggies, fruits and grain-free carbohydrates, like sweet potatoes and root vegetables. Here are five pegan breakfast recipes you’re going to love:

Vegan Paleo Granola


Full of healthy fats, protein and delicious spices, this wholesome granola recipe is perfect for adding to coconut yogurt, eating straight out of the jar, or topping with non-dairy milks. You can also sprinkle it over fruit purees or mix it with berries for a sweet treat! With the main ingredients being nuts and seeds, you really can’t go wrong with this recipe from Eco Glow.

Matcha Chia Pudding


Matcha green tea is loaded with antioxidants, and also has a natural dose of caffeine to help boost your morning buzz. This recipe from A Million Miles combines matcha with chia seeds, your sweetener of choice (we recommend natural honey), almond milk and vanilla extract. The chia seeds offer some protein and healthy fats, but we recommend topping with additional nuts as well if you want a big, hearty breakfast.

Paleo Vegan Pancakes


For lazy weekend mornings, these delicious paleo vegan pancakes are an amazing sweet treat. With a base of almond flour and tapioca flour, they are brought to life with maple syrup, fresh fruit, apple cider vinegar and coconut oil. Give these pancakes from The Real Food Dieticians a try next time you’re feeling like big, fluffy pancakes.

3-Layer Raspberry Almond Butter Oats

Overnight oats are a staple in the vegan community, but since oats aren’t technically paleo, pegan eaters have to switch things up a bit. This recipe from PaleoHacks will definitely do the trick! Instead of oats, this recipe uses coconut and cashew milk as well as chia seeds and coconut flakes to create a creamy, delicious texture.

Paleo Porridge

Processed with Snapseed.

Technically, this recipe from Pure and Simple Nourishment is called “Fall Paleo Porridge,” but I think it would be delicious at any time of year. It’s made with almond butter, carrots and apples, and spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and chai. Talk about delicious! Just be sure to use coconut oil instead of ghee and omit the gelatin if you want to keep it completely vegan.

I find all this paleo thin so daft. First it is not how cave people ate; 2, we do NOT live as cave people lived. Different life-styles, different diets. Cave people didn't sit in front of a computer for long hours, didn't have central heating, cars, smart phones, supermarkets and hey, the list is very long.
