Dairy-Free Breakfast Recipes Under 300 Calories

When it comes to breakfast, dairy can tend to be pretty inescapable. Trying to find a smoothie recipe that doesn’t call for yogurt, or muffins that don’t require butter can sometimes feel impossible—especially to anyone with a dairy sensitivity, or anyone with a vegan diet.

Thankfully, these nine dishes make ditching that A.M. dairy easy (And Pleasurable). Tender baked goods like apple crumble muffins and strawberry oatmeal bars opt for coconut oil and almond milk instead of cream and butter. And savory dishes like hash browns and omelets choose zesty ingredients, like spiced black beans and sweet corn, in place of cheese. So if you’re interested in cutting back on dairy, try one of these remixed recipes below.
