3 Awesome High Protein, Vegan Breakfast Recipes

By Nutritionist and GoodnessMe Box Health Editor Melissa Fine.

When you think of vegan food, ‘high protein’ generally doesn’t come to mind. But now, thanks to the availability of good quality, minimally processed plant-based protein powders, it’s much easier to make a protein-packed vegan breakfast that’s good for you and delicious. Here are three on my breakkie rotation lately.

1) Vanilla and Banana Breakfast Mousse

Serves 1.

Ingredients
  • 1 sachet/1 scoop (approx.1 Tbsp) SUNWARRIOR Vanilla protein powder (raw sprouted wholegrain brown rice protein; I like this one because it’s smooth and silky, unlike many other vegan protein powders which often taste gritty)
  • ½ banana
  • 1/3 Cup milk of choice (I used a coconut and rice milk)
  • 1 Tbsp white chia seeds
  • pinch salt
  • Topping ideas: Coconut flakes, raw nuts, nut butter, cacao nibs
Method

Place all ingredients minus the toppings in a blender (I use an Omniblend). Cover and blend on high for about 1 minute, or until ingredients are evenly combined and reach a smooth consistency. Add toppings and dig in! Or, for a thicker pudding, refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight before adding toppings.

2) Berry Breakfast Crumble

Low in carbs and sugar; Full of flavour.
Serves 2.

Ingredients
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • ½ Cup milk of choice (I used a coconut and rice milk)
  • 1 sachet/1 scoop (approx. 1 Tbsp) SUNWARRIOR Vanilla protein powder
  • ¼ Cup almond meal
  • 1 tsp white chia seeds
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • tiny pinch salt
  • ½ Cup coconut yoghurt (or unsweetened Greek yoghurt if you do dairy)
  • 2/3 Cup fresh/frozen berries
Method

For the crumble, add coconut oil to a mug and then add remaining ingredients, excluding the yoghurt and berries. Mix well and microwave on high for approx. 1 minute, 10 seconds. Leave crumble to cool for a couple minutes and divide berries into two glasses/jars/wine glasses. Then top each with yoghurt, followed by the crumble, parfait-style. Enjoy!

3) Mocha Overnight Oats

Serves 1.

Here I’ve combined three of my favourite foods – coffee, chocolate and oats! This should wake you up in the morning and keep your hunger at bay till lunch, thanks to its substantial fibre, protein and healthy fat content.

Ingredients
  • ¼ Cup traditional rolled oats
  • 1 sachet/1 scoop (approx. 1 Tbsp) SUNWARRIOR Chocolate protein powder
  • ½ Cup milk of choice (I used a coconut and rice milk)
  • ½ shot coffee (or ½ tsp instant coffee, dissolved in 20ml hot water – Leave to cool before adding to oat mixture) - ½ a banana, mashed
  • 1 Tbsp natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
Method

Mix all ingredients excluding the nut butter together in a deep, single-serve bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight so that the mixture plumps up. Top with nut butter in the morning and dig in!
PROTEIN PER SERVE: 20.13g!
