Breakfast in bed is one of my favorite self-care rituals.

But what even is breakfast in bed without the good food?! I suppose it’s just bed, and then I just feel like I’m being lazy. 

No, breakfast in bed sounds much more productive. Breakfast in bed is a VERB. 

Whether you want to treat yourself to a morning of self-care and a delicious meal, surprise your partner with a decadent lie-in (LOVE that term), or jazz up a regular Sunday morning at home, we’ve got you covered with these 11 vegan recipes (+ some of our best tips) that are PERFECT for a luxurious breakfast in (or out of) bed.

Vegan Breakfast in Bed Recipes

1. Vegan Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

These vegan cinnamon roll pancakes are a deliciously indulgent dairy-free breakfast! They are fluffy pancakes with a coconut sugar + cinnamon swirl, topped with a decadent cream cheese frosting. #vegan #veganpancakes #cinnamonroll #cinnamon #veganbreakfast #pancakes #plantpowercouple #dairyfree // plantpowercouple.com

These pancakes are my mom’s FAVORITE and most-requested Mothers’ Day recipe. She loves them served with fresh berries and champagne! And I mean, who wouldn’t?! 

2. Vegan Quiche En Croute

I’m about to rock your world with this delicious, decadent, and undeniably simple vegan quiche. It's made with a perfectly seasoned tofu base and encased in the most heavenly puff pastry crust. Welcome to savory brunch heaven! #vegan #quiche #veganrecipe #tofu #plantbased // plantpowercouple.com

You wanna talk fancy-sounding food that’s crazy-simple to make? Look no further than our vegan quiche en croute. The quiche filling is made from firm tofu blended with some pantry staples, sauteed veg, and kala namak to really get that eggy taste. Beautiful, inviting, and who doesn’t love anything wrapped in puff pastry? 

3. Dairy-Free Veggie Cream Cheese

This easy vegan cream cheese recipe has had me up and dancing for joy around the kitchen every morning this week! It's bursting with flavor, has a soft creamy texture you have to taste to believe, and requires very minimal effort on your part. #vegan #tofu #coconutoil #dairyfree // plantpowercouple.com

This veggie cream cheese is the perfect base for all your bagel needs. I like to spread a thick layer on toast and top with cucumbers, a quick squeeze of lemon, and a sprinkle of pepper. 

4. Rice Paper Bacon

This rice paper bacon is so easy and fun to make! It requires simple pantry ingredients you can keep on hand for whenever that smoky-salty-sweet craving strikes. It can easily be made gluten-free and tastes shockingly like the bacon we grew up eating! #vegan #bacon #veganrecipes // plantpowercouple.com

What breakfast in bed is complete without the BACON?! And lucky for us, there are about a million ways to make bacon that don’t involve killing an animal. Huzzah! Our favorite vegan bacon recipe is this rice paper version. It even crackles while it cooks! 

5. Seitan Ham

Make this vegan seitan ham when you really want to impress! It's full of smoky-sweet flavor and glazed with a pineapple mustard sauce that blow your mind. Beet puree is added for extra color and WOW factor. #seitan #vegan #vegetarian // plantpowercouple.com

If you’re more of a sliced ham person, we LOVE this seitan ham recipe. We like to make it ahead of time and fry up a few thinly-sliced pieces to eat with our tofu scramble or stacked high on a breakfast sandwich. You can even dice it up and throw it into the aforementioned quiche. 

6. Peanut Butter Cup Blender Latte

This Vegan Peanut Butter Cup Blender Latte is like a breakfast smoothie meets warm and cozy winter drink meets your caffeine addiction. 6 ingredients, 10 minutes, perfect vegan breakfast recipe for busy mornings! #vegan #dairyfree #veganrecipes #blenderlatte // plantpowercouple.com

7. Homestyle Vegan Waffles

Easy, ten-ingredient, freezer-friendly and toaster-friendly homemade vegan waffles. Simple enough for the beginner cook to dazzle and the perfect addition to a Sunday brunch… or a Thursday dinner! #vegan #waffles #dairyfree #breakfast // plantpowercouple.com

Ahhh, the classic waffle. These vegan waffles are easy to make, and the REALLY fun part is the variety of ways you can choose to top them. We love to serve them with berry compote and our vegan whipped cream, always a winning combo! Also, as easy as these are to make, people are always impressed by a homemade waffle. They just are.

8. 2-Ingredient Cherry Turnovers

These vegan cherry turnovers are so sinfully simple and devilishly delicious! With just two ingredients, even the most beginner of cooks can have these gorgeous bakery-style beauties done and ready to eat - for breakfast OR dessert - in just under an hour. #vegan #breakfast #turnover #cherries // plantpowercouple.com

If you’re looking for the easiest breakfast-in-bed option for a pastry fan, I’d go with these 2-ingredient vegan cherry turnovers. These are such a treat when served alongside a nice espresso or strong cup of coffee!

9. Spicy Vegan Bacon Salt (for Bloody Marys!)

Level-up your cocktail game with this Vegan Bloody Mary Bacon Salt! Made from marinated coconut, this crumbly vegan bacon topping is perfect for your morning tofu scramble or lining the rim of your Bloody Mary cocktail. #vegan #coconut #bacon #veganbacon #plantbased // plantpowercouple.com

If you’re a Bloody Mary person, this spicy vegan bacon salt is the PERFECT way to rim your Bloody Mary glass. This was actually a trick my dad alerted me to, and it’s genius. 

Side note: If you wanna get really crazy and make one of those far-out Bloody Marys with a bunch of fun toppings in it (If you know what I mean, you KNOW what I mean), this salt and our bloody mary flavored vegan jerky are the perfect accompaniment. The rice paper bacon would be nice too!

10. Easy Roasted Potatoes

Every good cook needs a solid roasted potato recipe in their arsenal, and this is ours! It's made with only six simple ingredients and comes out perfectly crispy + flavorful every. single. time. #vegan #potatoes #veganrecipes #glutenfree #plantbased

Potatoes are always great for breakfast, but how often do you actually take the time to make them? Breakfast in bed is the perfect excuse to go all-out with your favorite breakfast sides and this is at the top of our list.

11. Simple Vegan Potato Pancakes

Easy vegan potato pancakes make a great side for a plant-based breakfast, dinner, or just snacking! A simple egg-free recipe with BIG flavor, requiring only 9 ingredients and basic methods. #vegan #eggfree #potato #potatopancake #potatorecipes #veganbreakfast #boxty #latkes

T has been making me potato pancakes for a loooong time, and I LOVE them. His original recipe used an egg, but it was suuuper easy to make this vegan! And they are just as delicious and crispy and perfect as they’ve always been. 


Other Vegan Breakfast in Bed Essentials

1. Espresso machine

This is something we use every single morning but it REALLY gets a workout when we make breakfast in bed. You can find them for a really affordable price (this is the one we have). There’s just something that feels so fancy and decadent about a nice espresso with steamed plant milk. 

2. Serving tray

We learned a long time ago (approximately 2.3 cats ago) that a good serving tray is a MUST when you love to do breakfast in bed. We use these bamboo trays which are awesome, but there are a TON of options out there. 

3. Waffle maker

To make the aforementioned waffles, you don’t need anything fancy. We use this waffle maker that my nana procured for us at a yard sale! (Thanks, Nana! 🙂 ) It works like a charm and doesn’t take up a ton of space when we’re not using it which is EVERYTHING.

4. French press

If you’re not ready to go full into the espresso machine, a French press is the next option. We have this one.  Plus, it’s easy to just press it and bring this upstairs so we can pour and enjoy coffee at our leisure. 

5. Juicer

T has had this juicer for FOREVER, and writing this is totally taking me back to all those mornings when T and I first lived together that I would wake up to sounds of him juicing God-only-knows-what. He’d create the most random but awesome combinations like watermelon-mint-cucumber and pineapple-lime. BONUS POINTS: It’s also a really cool way to make juice for mimosas.
