I used to be a morning person, but somehow, over the years, I’ve become one of those people who hits the snooze button on my alarm clock one too many times. Once I finally roll out of bed, I have two minutes to get ready for work and often that means missing breakfast, which of course, is not ideal for a hungry vegan! So, I set out to create an easy granola recipe using three of my favorite products from the Vegan Cuts marketplace.
With spring on the horizon, many of us have already started swapping hearty comfort foods for lighter, more vibrant foods. Breakfast is no exception; getting a nourishing start to your day can be pretty tricky when time is short and there’s a vegan doughnut sitting on your counter just begging to be eaten.

As someone whose last experience with The Vegg vegan egg yolk was about a year ago, I’d have to say that I was really excited to work with it again. This time, I had breakfast on my mind, which seems to be a recurring theme in my recipes lately. I needed to create something that was easy to make, but had flare and tons of flavor. The Vegg is currently on sale at Vegan Cuts if you’d like to pick some up and give it a try.
