Probably the EASIEST vegan brunch contributor, but one that couldn’t be left out. This margarita smoothie is healthy, zesty, creamy and makes you feel like you are sipping the real thing on a beach. Mom is going to love this for her Mother’s Day Vegan Brunch. This dairy free smoothie is packed with pineapple, coconut yogurt, dates, spinach, coconut water and lots of lime!! It doesn’t have to be all desserts for mom today, start off healthy!
Mom deserves the BEST. So why not make her the BEST gluten free cinnamon rolls if you are looking for vegan brunch recipes. This recipe has made an appearance quite often over at the Greens, Eggs and Yams HQ. They are gluten free, vegan and the sweetest (literally and figuratively) way to start off any vegan brunch. Top these sweet buns with vegan cream cheese frosting and you’ll be the happiest version of yourself for the rest of the day!
It can’t all be sweet vegan brunch recipes on this list, so I’m adding a savoury vegan bruschetta. But this bruschetta isn’t like the classic- it’s better because it’s made with YAM TOAST! It’s a fun take on the classic Italian dish, and if your mom loves trying new things, this might be the best recipe to surprise her with as part of her mother’s day vegan brunch. The yams get nice and toasty and they are topped with a lovely tomato bruschetta mixture and avocado!
Did I get you at 3 ingredients?! You better believe it! You need 1 banana, oats, and plant-based milk to make these soft, moist and gluten free pancakes! These pancakes aren’t heavy and they would go perfectly with that margarita smoothie I mentioned above! But word to the wise, if you are making it for the entire family, make sure you double or triple the recipe, no one wants to go hungry at brunch.
If Mom is a bagel addict (like myself), then you NEED to make these sammies for her. For gluten-free bagels I like O’Doughs, and for a delicious sprouted wheat bagel, Silverhills Bakery is my go-to! The Vegan Pesto beautifully completes the grilled veggies. Sometimes you don’t want sweet treats in the morning and THAT IS TOTALLY FINE, so that is where these beauties come in!
OH MAMA is what you’ll be saying when you bite into this LOADED Vegan French Toast. You can keep this vegan brunch recipe simple by sticking to just maple syrup. OR live a little and load it up with the cinnamon sauce, and coconut whip. I mean we are celebrating Mom today, so go ALL OUT!
Mom needs something to sip on while she feasts, and who doesn’t love a little light buzz on a holiday?! These Grapefruit mimosas are the perfect vegan brunch addition. Sip and pamper mom with these smooth, tangy and fresh dranks.
For a healthier “cake”, muffins are always a good idea. The great thing about these Gluten Free Banana Muffins, is that you can make them a day or two ahead of time and they will still be so dang good on Mother’s Day. And if you don’t eat them all, freeze them. No need for waste when it comes to these muffins. They are soft, moist, perfectly sweet and really hard to stop after one. I warned you.
Would brunch really be brunch without an epic breakfast cake? NO. It wouldn’t. When in doubt and looking for amazing vegan brunch ideas, always go with a cake. That’s because everyone loves cake, and if you don’t you are a sociopath. This Vegan Apple Cake is hella moist, simple to make and not overly sweet! Mom’s going to love it.
Healthy, savoury, flavourful breakfast tacos that Mom is going to obsess over. Yams, black beans, tofu, avocado and a dreamy cheesy cashew sauce- count me in! Even better, pair them with this crispy breakfast potatoes because Mom deserves the royal treatment. You know she does. Just remember all the weekends she gave up to drive you to your sports tournaments or whatever you were doing as a moody teen. She DESERVES A GOLD CROWN.
These Vegan Carrot Cake Cupcakes are fluffy, perfectly sweet and MOIST. Yup, I said it. Because they are! The vegan cream cheese frosting is absolutely heavenly that Mom is for sure going to want a second cupcake.
Mom’s are great. They have sacrificed so much for their unappreciative offspring and they STILL love us. My mom gave up her weekends to sleep in uncomfortable hotels so I could play in out-of-town volleyball tournaments. She would make cookies at 10:00 PM on a weeknight so that her kiddos had homemade goodies in our lunch. She always put me and my sister first, and your mom is probably similar. So make her the BEST Vegan Brunch because she is the BEST. There are a ton of amazing vegan brunch ideas on this list. And I mean, if you really want to be her favourite kid, maybe make ALL of them for her. Just a thought.
