I want to start sharing some more meal prep ideas and recipes with you all! This past week I spent a couple hours preparing breakfast for the week and it has made my mornings so much more enjoyable. Instead of having to prepare breakfast each morning, I can spend more time doing other things until Harper wakes up. This week I prepped two sweet breakfast options and one savory option. All of these recipes are plant-based and beginner friendly!

I’ll go into more detail on each plant-based recipe below, but first I’ll quickly share the links to the three recipes I made:
- Chocolate Overnight Oats
- Family Size Basic Vegan Granola
- Vegan Mediterranean Quiche (from Full of Plants)
Chocolate Overnight Oats:
One of the sweet breakfast recipes I prepare was some chocolate overnight oats. I’m sure it’s no surprise to many of my long-time readers that this was my favorite breakfast option! I used the base of my 5 make-ahead overnight oat recipes and just stuck with one flavor: chocolate!
For 5 servings I mixed together 2 1/2 cups rolled oats, 5 tablespoons chia seeds, 5 tablespoons cocoa powder and some cacao nibs. Then I stirred in 4 cups of coconut milk and a few tablespoons of maple syrup and allowed the mixture to sit until thickened before dividing the batter evenly among 5 jars. I loved topping mine with homemade peanut butter and pumpkin seeds. So delicious!
Family-Size Basic Vegan Granola:
We always have granola on hand and I love to make a big batch at a time so I don’t have to think about it for a while. We like to sprinkle it on top of pancakes and oatmeal or mix it with other store-bought cereal for a quick and easy breakfast.
I made an old, but delicious recipe on the blog called Family-Size Basic Vegan Granola. I gave it that name because it truly serves a family (for a while!) and is really easy to make. It’s more loose than my favorite cluster granola, but it’s still delicious!
Vegan Mediterranean Quiche:
While I almost always eat a sweet breakfast in the morning, I wanted to include a savory option for those of you who prefer savory breakfasts. The recipe I made is from Full of Plants and is for a Vegan Mediterranean Quiche. He divided his quiche among three smaller skillets, but I just made one large quiche using a cake pan. For my 9″ cake pan I had to bake the quiche for about 45 minutes. I also think I could have added a little more salt to the base, but that’s definitely up to your taste preference!
This is the best vegan quiche recipe I’ve found so far and I love pairing it with some toast and fruit!
