Fall season is finally here, who's looking forward to embracing the weather and cozy foods like we are? It's one of our favorite seasons to cook in and love all the colors and flavors that call out FALL. We recently converted our whole family of 7 to a whole food plant based diet and have been exploring many new recipes and food combinations that are not only delicious but healthy for you too.
Today we share 5 kid friendly/family friendly warm breakfast recipes you can make with simple, plant based ingredients. We also share 1 simple 5 ingredient snack at the end with some of our kiddos! Check out the video below and if you need the recipes, we have them written out for you too.
Let us know in the comments if you'd like a printable version whenever we make these foods for your convenience and we will gladly put together something for you!
✨Plant Based Breakfast Recipes✨
✨Brownie Batter Baked Oatmeal
1 flax egg (1 tbs ground flaxseed + 3 tbs water)
1 cup mashed banana (from 2-3 ripe bananas)
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup nut butter - Tahini is what we used
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 3/4 cups non-dairy milk 3 cups rolled oats
1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
2. Grease a 8x8 inch baking dish or 9 inch cake pan. Set aside.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons water. Set aside to thicken. This will be your "egg."
4. In a mixing bowl, mash your bananas.
5. To the bananas, add in the thickened flax egg, cocoa powder, nut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Whisk everything together until a uniform batter forms.
6. Next whisk in the non-dairy milk until smooth.
7. Add in the 3 cups of old-fashioned rolled oats and stir until combined.
8. Pour the batter into your prepared baking dish and bake for about 25-35 minutes or until cooked through.
9. Serve warm with more maple syrup, nut butter and non-dairy milk!
✨3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Oat Cookies Ingredients
1 cup Peanut Butter salted or unsalted peanut butter, no added oil, no added sugar
3/4 cup Oat Flour see notes for options
5 tablespoon Maple Syrup Optional - for extra sweetness 5-6 drops Vanilla Stevia Instructions
Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Set aside. In a medium-size mixing bowl, add fresh runny salted peanut butter with maple syrup.
Combine with a spatula until it forms a creamy paste.
Fold in the flour of your choice and stir until it forms a cookie dough ball
Divide the cookie dough into 12 pieces.
Roll each piece into a ball between your hands
Place each ball on the prepared cookie sheet and, using a fork, flatten the cookies. I love to flatten each cookie twice, forming a cross shape on the top of the peanut butter cookies.
Repeat until all cookies are shaped and leave a thumb space between each cookie. They won't expand while baking, but you don't want the cookies to touch each other.
Bake for 12-18 minutes or until the sides are golden brown. It took me 16 minutes for 8 large cookies and 12 minutes for 12 smaller cookies.
Cool the cookies down 10 minutes on the tray, then transfer on a cooling rack. Be patient; they will get crunchier with time.
After 3 hours, they will get the most beautiful crunchy texture.
✨Chocolate Peanut Butter Waffles Ingredients:
Peanut Butter Grapeseed Oil Coconut Sugar Spelt Flour/Rye Flour Cocoa Powder Baking Powder Salt
✨Fall Granola - In a large mixing bowl, add rolled oats or rolled spelt, coconut sugar, nuts, seeds of your choice, dried fruit, and spices.
For fall flavors we recommend cinnamon, apple pie or pumpkin pie spice, ground cloves, ground ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg but you can literally add whatever you like.
Add a drizzle of grapeseed oil, as much as needed to lightly coat your granola mixture.
Spread your granola on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes, take it out, stir and put it back in for 2-3 minutes or however long you'd like.
Be careful not to burn your granola Store in an air tight container and enjoy with hemp milk or any plant based milk, top on a smoothie bowl or just by itself as a snack.
