Sometimes having a strict vegetarian diet means you miss out on all the fun. You have to be extremely innovative to have a decent meal. During breakfast, you’re on the go, need to get your energy, but feel a bit limited as to what you have to whip up together. Well, it’s not as difficult as it may seem. Here are 15 yummy vegetarian breakfast ideas that will take you no time to make.
Yep, some of these vegetarian breakfast ideas are vegan, too! You don’t need dairy to create this breakfast classic. Gather some wheat or homemade bread and soak it in some almond milk or coconut milk mixed with vanilla extract and flax seed meal and let it cook in the pan. Sprinkle some cinnamon, fresh fruit, jam or agave nectar and enjoy.
These bites are the perfect little breakfast on the run for those who don’t have time to sit and eat. In a bowl, mix together some oats, honey, almond butter, chocolate chips and a little something if you want to switch it up. Throw on some banana or blueberries, roll the ingredients into about a dozen bite sized goodies and you have an easy energized breakfast.

We all love our own little combinations for our breakfast toast, sliced banana on almond butter is the most common and sprinkled with chia seeds will give it some extra protein to start your day.
This, of course, takes a little prep, as it requires marrying overnight. But you will be glad you did as you create your own overnight oats and have your own delicious breakfast.

Once all together, you would have created your ultimate go-to mixture for your super-sized breakfast bowl.

If you have some prepped plain quinoa, you can use it as an oatmeal substitute, if you prefer to get your helping of grains this way. Much like the oatmeal bowl, mix the ingredients of your choosing, drizzle almond butter and toss in some sliced bananas.
This is the easiest way to get your nutrients and to consume them in several easy gulps. Sneak in all the pesky vitamins you need to start your morning with a little spinach, almond milk, blueberries, bananas, oats, honey and maybe a little bit of iced coffee to wake yourself up.
