If you’re someone who loves to eat dessert for breakfast (hey, at least you have all day to work off the extra calories!) then, vegan or not, you should be looking into vegan desserts. Vegan desserts are usually much lower in fat, sugar and calories than their non-vegan counterparts, and often use fresh produce so they can easily double as breakfast.
Truffles are, in most cases, one of the richest desserts around. But this vegan recipe from Care2.com uses coconut milk, which is loaded with potassium and very low in sugars, vegan chocolate chips, and coconut oil which is loaded with healthy fats. Enjoy them with your favorite coffee.
You can easily eat these for breakfast, as a snack or for dessert. They call for all-natural peanut butter so you get protein and healthy fats, unsweetened coconut which is loaded with fiber, and almonds, which contain healthy fats. We found this recipe at OhSheGlows.com.

No, we’re not messing with you. We wouldn’t do that. This edible heaven on earth does exist, and it is 100-percent vegan. While crème brulee would usually be the reason you spend an extra hour on the treadmill, this is a super-light and nutritious version. With one-and-a-half avocados, you get plenty of healthy fats and fiber, but you still get that creamy, smooth texture you want from crème brulee. And finally the pistachios give a nice nutty, salty kick. We found this recipe at Joanne-EatsWellWithOthers.com.
