What is Brunch?

Brunch is a word salad. It combines two delectable meals, breakfast and lunch. Brunch is not only a meal; it’s an experience. It’s also a chance to sit leisurely at a table with indulgent food and catch up with friends and family.

You can serve a combination of sweet and savory dishes at brunch. Things like French toast, pancakes, and omelets are common.

If you’re following a vegan diet, finding delicious and satisfying vegan brunch options can be a challenge.

But we’ve got you covered! Here are some of our favorite mouth-watering vegan brunch recipes!

When it comes to pancake toppings (or waffles and french toast), the possibilities are truly endless.

From fresh fruit (like berries) to chocolate chips, sprinkles, and even vegan whipped cream, you can customize your pancakes just the way you like them!

When it comes to sauces, I prefer this indulgent blueberry sauce. It’s a go-to favorite that’s ready in minutes! You can also serve strawberry puree, elderberry syrup, or cherry sauce with pancakes.

Looking for something healthy? Serve bowls of nuts, seeds, and dairy-free yogurt. This vegan date caramel sauce is both healthy and sweet.

Waffles for Brunch

Waffles make for an excellent brunch option. Why? Because you can use so many toppings to make them look and taste amazing!

You can add a dollop of aquafaba whipped cream, seasonal berries, chopped bananas, or a drizzle of maple syrup for a unique brunch experience. Don’t have maple syrup? You can make this simple maple syrup substitute!

French Toast for Brunch

When it comes to making French toast for brunch, the devil is in the details.

For example, choosing the proper bread is key to making yummy vegan french toast. Adding the best spices can have a significant impact, too.

For French toast with a genuinely gourmet flavor, I love using thick slices of sourdough bread. Bump up the batter with a pinch (or two) of ground spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. Then sprinkle the finished french toast slices with powdered sugar.

For the perfect wow factor, add a generous helping of fresh seasonal berries.

These simple steps will help you can make a seriously exquisite French toast experience for your next brunch.

Plant-Based Egg Dishes

Looking for a delicious alternative to eggs? These plant-based egg dishes include some modern innovations for that egg flavor and texture without chickens!

Imagine eggless omelets filled with vegan cheese and sauteed vegetables. Or how about a vegan frittata with all the roasted vegetables?

Plant-based eggs are not only delicious, but they also deliver protein, vitamins, and minerals. It’s a great way to get essential nutrients in your diet.

  • 1 flax egg
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 1 ½ cups plant-based milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 2 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup raspberries (see note)


  • Prepare the flax egg. Set aside.
  • Blend the bananas, milk, vinegar, butter, and agave nectar in a blender or food processor. Pulse in short bursts until the bananas are broken into smaller bits.
  • Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Pour the banana mixture into the flour mixture and stir until there are no large flour clumps in the bowl. Allow the batter to sit for 10 minutes.
  • Heat a griddle over medium-high heat. Spray some vegetable spray, and pour the batter in 1/4 cup rounds in the heated pan. Top pancakes with frozen raspberry pieces (whole pieces can be too big for pancakes, so cut them in half or add pieces of the fruit).
  • Cook pancakes for 3 to 4 minutes until bubbles appear on the top of the pancakes. Then flip pancakes and cook on the other side for 3 to 4 minutes, until golden brown. 
  • Transfer cooked pancakes to a pan lined with parchment paper. To keep pancakes warm, place the pan in an oven preheated to 200°F while you finish making pancakes from the rest of the batter.
  • Serve pancakes with vegan butter, sliced bananas, fresh fruit, and maple syrup.
