Best Gluten Free Vegan Breakfasts

Breakfast menus can be a real challenge to Gluten Free Vegans because the traditional American breakfast foods are full of non-vegan and gluten food options.  Personally, I often skip breakfast and go right to my salads late in the morning!

But, if you are looking for some new recipe ideas, the following post has EIGHT different options!

  • Creamy Tahini Rice Pudding
  • Frijoles Colades (Strained Sweetened Beans)
  • Sweet Tofu Cakes
  • Tempeh Hash
  • Rice Flour Pancakes
  • Soy Milk Cottage Cheese
  • Crispy Rice Cookies
  • Gluten-Free Banana Bread

My favorite of the group is the Crispy Rice Cookies:

Nikki Goldbeck’s Vegan & Gluten-Free Breakfasts

These gluten-free crispy rice cookies keep well in a covered container and make a good breakfast on-the-run.

Yield: 20 cookies

  • 6 tablespoons tahini
  • 6 tablespoons maple or rice syrup
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped peanuts
  • 1 cup crispy brown rice cereal

Preheat oven to 3500F.

Beat tahini and sweetener together in a mixing bowl until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients. Using a teaspoonful at a time, shape mixture into balls and place on an oiled baking sheet. Flatten slightly using a fork or your hand.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until edges of cookies are golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
