MAKE AHEAD VEGAN BREAKFASTS | 3 easy recipes


Today we’re cooking some Make-Ahead
Vegan Breakfasts. They’re simple to make, nutritious but
delicious, and they’re gonna save you time in the morning. These make-ahead vegan breakfast ideas are perfect for meal prep. They’re gonna save you time in
the morning so you don’t have to spend too much time in the kitchen. In addition
to being vegan, they’re also gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and oil-free so
they’re really nourishing but still really tasty. And you can find the full
recipe for all of these on the blog, which is in the description box below.
And now for something exciting before we get to these recipes. My very first
cookbook – The Vegan Instant Pot Cookbook – is officially here. I’m so excited to share
it with you. You can get it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, some Costco’s will sell
it, Target.com – a bunch of different places,
including perhaps your local bookseller, so I really hope you’ll check it out.
I’ve loved seeing so many of you cook from it already. you’ve tagged me on
Instagram and stories and sent me messages and emails, and it’s been just
so rewarding. So if you make something from the book, if you love the book,
please let me know, please let Amazon know. I would really appreciate it. And
I’m so excited to meet some of you this summer because I’ll be doing some
cookbook tour events. I’ve already met a few of you here in New York which was so
incredible, and I can’t wait to meet more of you along the way. I’ll be doing a few
events in Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco this summer in July. I’ve
included the tour dates and information in the description box below but be sure
to subscribe to the blog and follow me on Instagram because I’ll be posting
more regular updates there about any new dates that I’ll be adding to the tour.
Thank you guys so much for your support on my cookbook already, it means so much to me. And with that let’s get into these make-ahead vegan breakfast ideas. Here are all the ingredients you need
for this Chocolate Chia Mousse. I’m starting off with some plant-based milk. you can
use any variety you like, such as almond or oat. Some chia seeds because this is a chia mousse. Some raw cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder. A little bit of
sea salt, some vanilla extract, a little espresso powder to bring out the
chocolate flavors, and some pitted Medjool dates. This is going to be the
only source of sugar so it’s a no-added-sugar recipe. Blend that up until the
dates are pulverized and the mixture is really thick and creamy. For this cheesy protein spread I have
some extra-firm tofu – that’s the main ingredient. You’re gonna press it so you
remove all the excess water so it’s not a watery spread. And these are the rest
of the ingredients. You’re just gonna add everything to the food processor, blend
it all together. So we have extra-firm tofu. We have some cannellini beans for
extra protein. We also have some miso paste, fresh lemon juice, as well as a
little bit of plant-based milk, some garlic and onion powder for seasoning as
well as salt, a little bit of lemon zest for freshness, and some nutritional yeast
for cheesiness. My favorite way to serve this is
slathered on some whole-grain seeded bread and I’ll top it with some greens
and fresh herbs, maybe some cherry tomatoes and some hemp seeds, but you can serve it however you like. and if you don’t eat bread or are avoiding grains you
can spread this on top of a baked sweet potato instead. For the dry ingredients we have some
gluten-free rolled oats, along with unsweetened shredded coconut, a little
bit of sea salt, and a mixture of baking soda and baking powder. And since we’re not using any oil, the
main fat source is going to be this creamy smooth almond butter. And then I’m also adding some pure maple syrup for the sweetness, as well as some flax eggs
and a little bit of pure vanilla extract. Now for my favorite part – the mix-ins.
You can get creative and use whatever you like. I like some combination of
dried fruit and seeds. Today I’m using juice-sweetened cranberries, chopped up
pumpkin seeds and hemp seeds. I use an ice cream scoop to get these
cookies relatively even in size and they won’t really spread out much so you
don’t need to give them too much space. And then you’re going to lightly flatten
the tops of them with a fork or your fingers. We’ll bake these cookies at 350
degrees Fahrenheit for 18 to 20 minutes. These cookies are delicious on their own
but if you want a throwback to childhood, go ahead and dunk them in some oat milk
or cashew milk. I promise it’s really delicious.

I plan to take all suggestions and make another test video around October, then hopefully go weekly starting January 1st, 2020. I am VERY excited to finally get my channel going but also a bit nervous. I am starting out with a few standard recipes then start moving to vegetarian, then Vegan recipes. I am Vegan myself, but SLOWLY getting my family to eat better as well. Have a GREAT weekend.

  19. Hello 🙂 I've just stumbled across your channel and have never seen your blog, but these recipes look wonderful! Please tell me, do you use any oils in your recipes in your new Instant Pot cookbook? I eat some nuts, seeds, and avocado, but I avoid all oils.
