A Week's Worth of High-Protein Vegan Breakfasts

Breakfast is pretty much my favorite meal of the day. It seems to be the easiest to cook for me and it starts my day off on the right foot, especially in terms of my macros. I feel more on track to hit my protein intake goals when I have a breakfast higher on the protein.

I thought I’d share some of my favorite high-protein vegan breakfasts with you so you can also start your weekdays on a high (protein) note! See what I did there? ;)

If you don’t like tofu or supplementing with protein, I’m sorry! These recipes aren’t for you. I never said I was super diverse with my breakfasts, these are just some quick recipes with ingredients I always have on hand. But if you’re still interested, keep on reading!

1. PROATS AKA Protein+Oats

This is one breakfast dish I make more often than I’d like to admit. I always am sure to cook the oats thoroughly while still making sure there’s enough water in there to mix the protein with. Otherwise, you’re stuck with chalky ass oatmeal..and no one wants that! Feel free to top with your favorite fruit, mine is always bananas, strawberries, or blueberries. Nuts are also a great addition as well!

½ Cup Old Fashioned Oats

1 Scoop Vegan Protein Powder

½ TBSP Chia Seeds

1 TBSP Nut Butter

½ TSP Cinnamon

1 Banana or 1 Cup Blueberries

2. Tofu Scramble Burrito

This is a great breakfast to make when I have a little more time on my hands in the morning or when I’m craving something savory in the morning. I love tofu scrambles anytime of day, and this one can even be made for dinner as well. Just heat everything up in a pan and boom, easy breakfast, lunch, or dinner. And if you don't feel like making it a burrito you can just eat it naked or have some avocado toast on the side!

½ Block of Firm Tofu

½ Cup Beans of Choice (I like Pinto)

1oz. Red Onion

1oz. Bell Pepper

1oz. Mushrooms

1 Handful Baby Spinach

1oz. Jalapeno

1 Low Carb Tortilla

Season to your liking, I use chili powder, minced garlic, and chili-lime seasoning.

3. Protein Chia Seed Pudding

Normally chia seed pudding isn’t something necessarily high in protein, but when you add a great tasting protein powder in the mix, you my friend, have a game changer. Just combine all ingredients and put in the fridge overnight, in the morning you’ll have a delectable high-protein breakfast!

1 Mashed Banana

2-3 TBSP Chia Seeds

1 Scoop Vegan Protein Powder

1 Cup Plant Based Milk

1 TBSP Nut Butter

½ TSP Cinnamon

4. Tofu Avocado Toast

This is a recent development of mine, adding tofu to my avocado toast, and I don’t know how I lived without it until now. Adding hummus underneath the avocado...thank me later.

2 Slices Vegan Bread (I use Ezekial or Dave’s Killer Bread)

1TBSP Hummus

½ Avocado

½ Block Siracha Tofu from Trader Joe’s (or any firm tofu)

1oz. Tomato

Sprinkle of Lemon Juice & Chili-Lime Seasoning

5. Protein Pancakes

These have been a weekend staple for me lately and I absolutely love layering nut butter and banana or strawberries in between the pancakes and topping with date syrup for delicious flavor! I cheat and get a vegan pancake mix, one brand I’ve been loving is Purely Elizabeth. I add protein powder to the mix just to give me an extra boost of protein.

½ Cup Vegan Pancake Mix

1 Scoop Vegan Protein Powder

1 TBSP Coconut Oil

1 Cup Plant Based Milk

1 TSP Cinnamon

1 Banana

1 TBSP Nut Butter

1TSP Date Syrup

Enjoy! Be sure to let me know in the comments below if you are going to try any of these out! Have a vegan day! :)
