The egg is an amazing ingredient. It's easy to cook, inexpensive to buy, and to some, a delicious way to start the morning. However, it isn't for everyone. Whether for health reasons or boredom, some people just get plain tired of eggs. For those folks we've rounded up 25 egg-free breakfast recipes to enjoy. It's time to get egg-cited about breakfast again...minus the egg!

Orange-Mango Gritty with Turmeric and Walnuts

This "gritty" is the opposite of a smoothie thanks to the nuts, seeds, and spices. There's a little bit of everything to enjoy here—mango adds natural sweetness, yogurt brings some tanginess, there's protein from the nuts, and a nice zing from the turmeric. What more could you ask for in a breakfast beverage?

Creamy Coconut-Citrus Waffle

Make a batch of this granola and enjoy it throughout the week with a variety of toppings. While the recipe calls for raspberries, feel free to swap them for any seasonal berry of your choosing.

Fuel your morning with crisp bell peppers, vitamin-rich sweet potatoes, and vibrant spinach. Did we mention it has bacon, too?

Cashew-Carrot Toast

Whoever said toast is boring never tried this recipe. Cashew butter + carrot + bacon = a satisfyingly simple morning meal.

Apple-Tahini Toast

While peanut butter is a classic toast topper, try tahini instead. The nutty-sesame seed flavor pairs perfectly with the tart Granny Smith apple and sweet honey.

Prosciutto-Melon Toast

The meaty prosciutto beautifully accentuates the sweet melon on this super easy toast.

Peanut Butter, Banana, and Flax Smoothies

Tastes like a treat while sneaking in some protein and potassium. Flax seed has a slightly nutty flavor that elevates creamy peanut butter.

Don't let the spinach discourage you! The creamy Greek yogurt, sweet kiwi, and fresh honeydew will mask the taste.
