As we all know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In the winter, when you wake up to the chilly air, make getting out of your cozy bed a little easier by getting some warm breakfast that will keep you going through the cold. We have plenty of easy vegan cooking tips and recipes from the Food Monster App for delicious and comforting winter breakfasts to make cold mornings a little easier!

1. Perfect Porridges!

There is a good reason why porridges are most commonly eaten during colder months: they are warm, nourishing, hearty, and a breakfast that will set you up for success all day long. Their versatility means you can change them up with a variety of toppings and mixings, so they always stay exciting. These will surely warm your belly! They’re also just amazingly tasty looking: just look at this Blueberry Millet Porridge from Natalie Yonan. Millet will be a satisfying breakfast!

For a very quick but no less delicious and amazing looking breakfast, Maria Llamas brings you this Super Quick Chocolate Porridge that will be your new go-to meal on mornings you’re running late. And who wouldn’t love chocolate in breakfasts? Did we just hear you say you want more chocolatey, delicious breakfast? Look no further than this Chocolate Quinoa Porridge from Laura Kuklase!

2. Sweet Cinnamon Buns!

The sweetness of cinnamon buns, the beautiful smell filling your house, the warmth of a fresh treat… what a good way to start a day! Spend your chilly winter weekend mornings the right way by waking up to these delicious cinnamon rolls. Use seasonal flavors to really get into the spirit of the season, like with these Pumpkin Cinnamon Buns with Maple Caramel Glaze from Michele Elizabeth!

If pumpkin isn’t really your thing, there are still many seasonal flavors that you could include in these beautiful breakfast items! More of an apple cider person than pumpkin spice? Michele Elizabeth has a different option for you with her Apple Spice Rolls. Maple, cinnamon and raisin – could anything sound better than these Sticky Maple Glazed Cinnamon Raisins Rolls from Crissy Cavanaugh? Or if you’re short on ingredients (and who wants to go out in the cold to the store before breakfast?), no worries. Rachel Carr has the answer for you with these 10-Ingredient Cinnamon Buns!

3. Plenty of Pancakes!

A tried and true classic for a good reason: pancakes are potentially one of the most loved breakfast foods. A great stack of pancakes is the best way to start your day, and they feel like comfort in a meal. You can even get some added nutrients in your short (or tall!) stack with these Spinach Blender Pancakes from Kristina Jug & Mitja Bezenšek! However, we won’t judge if you want chocolate for breakfast: go ahead and make these Strawberry Chocolate Pancakes from Hayley Canning.

Of course, our bloggers also have some classic seasonal flavored options for you as well, in case you’re not quite sick of pumpkin and apple yet! These Oaty Pumpkin Pancakes with Maple Cinnamon Nut Butter Spread from Tori Cooper have the added bonus of a delicious topping that you’ll love. For another option, who could say no to pie in your breakfast, like in Holly Bertone‘s Buckwheat Apple Pie Pancakes?

Varying from savory to sweet and everything in between, these awesome recipes can fulfill any breakfast cravings you might be having. They’re great with fruit, as you can see in this Fall Crumble with Kaki and Pear from Melanie Jacobs that takes advantage of great fall fruits.

If you want some “berry” good breakfast, try out this Berries and Plum Crumble from Kristina Jug & Mitja Bezenšek! Combine apple with coconut and some wonderful nutty flavor in this Apple, Coconut and Hazelnut Crumble from Phoebe Douglas for a perfect blend of sweetness and heartiness.
