2 Healthy Tasty Breakfast Options for Vegan Kids


by Usri Sen

Presenting 2 breakfast options for vegan kids, that is not only quick to make but also is sure to please myriad taste palettes, children and elders alike

Some kids like to dance, some like to sing, while others like to paint. Some like to engage in indoor activities, and some others like to build Jenga towers or Legos structures. And I am most likely to get a nod when I say, most of these ‘some kids’ are picky eaters. Those who are into vegan diet and tend to be very fussy with their food- now that’s a challenge for my dear moody/daddy friend!Breakfast Options for Vegan Kids 01

So, how do we make vegan food kid-friendly for our vegan picky or non-picky eaters?

Well! Let’s find out through our two yummy-healthy recipes, but before I proceed any further, let’s take a look at the real definition of ‘vegan’!

Definition of vegan

A strict vegetarian who consumes no food (such as meat, eggs, or dairy products) that comes from animals; 
also : one who abstains from using animal products (such as leather).
Ooh! Now that’s a tricky one. But, worry not, we have got two fantastic recipes for your vegan child. Try them out this summer, and share you experience on our Instagram!

1. Vegan French Toast

Preparation time is just under 5 minutes and cooking time is about 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Flaxseed – 2 Tbsp

  • Nutmeg Powder – ½ Tbsp
  • Vanilla Extract – 1 Tbsp
  • Sliced bread – 6
  • Salt as per taste

Procedure: 

In a large shallow dish, whisk together the ground flaxseed and milk and let it sit for 5 minutes so the flaxseed can thicken. Whisk milk mixture again before adding in the cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and salt. Whisk lightly until fully combined.

Lightly dip the slices of bread in the milk mixture so as to just cover the bread. Cook the bread over medium heat on a shallow pan. Once done, top it with your favorite syrup, seasonal fruits and dusting powder.Breakfast Options for Vegan Kids 02

Preheat oven to 375 degree F, and grease your baking dish. In a saucepan, bring to boil, blueberries, agave nectar, lemon juice and water over medium heat. After it comes to boil, stir in the vanilla and corn starch mixture. Remove from heat and allow it to cool, the mixture will thicken once it cools

Process half of the oats in a blender until they are fine powdered and combine them with remaining oats, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Add the agave nectar, applesauce, vanilla and mix. Add the coconut oil and incorporate well. It will thicken and become like a cookie dough.

Press about half of the mixture into the bottom of your baking dish. Pour the blueberry mixture on top of the crust layer. Finally, sprinkle crumble of rest of the mixture on top of the blueberry sauce. Bake for 30 minutes in the pre-heated one. Once done, allow it to cool.Breakfast Options for Vegan Kids 03
