Protein is super important to have for breakfast as it keeps you full for the longest.

But, if you don’t have time (or you’re just not in the mood in the morning, that’s ok too) to make an omelette, oatmeal, protein pancakes and such, here are some ideas that take few minutes to get in your mouth.

Some of these require to be made ahead and some don’t. Choose what fits you. I do recommend you to try all these out as they are all so tasty and filling.

Boiled eggs

Super simple, but so filling and good for you. Boil up a bunch of eggs at once and just keep them in the fridge. When it’s time for breakfast, just grab one or two. You can eat them alone or a spread/dip you like. You can always have a boiled egg as a snack as well.

Avocado toast with eggs

Another way to eat boiled eggs. Spread some avocado on toast and slice up a boiled egg and put on top of your avocado toast. I love this one, give it a try and see if you like it!

Waffles with peanut butter

Another delicious, fast and easy way to get your protein for breakfast. You can get any whole grain waffles you like, or make your own ahead and then just top them with peanut butter. I personally love this peanut butter from Thrive Market, but again you can use any you like.

Greek yogurt parfait

Combine greek yogurt with some granola or muesli and some fresh fruit (berries and bananas are the best for this) and you got yourself tasty protein breakfast in minutes!

Hummus and veggies

Prep veggies in advance and just keep them in the fridge, ready to grab in the morning. Buy hummus you like, or again, make hummus yourself in advance. This is a great option if you prefer salty breakfast. It’s full of protein and veggies are always a good idea.


This is for all of us that love cheese! I know I can always have some. When it comes to breakfast, I recommend combining some cottage cheese with fruits and nuts, but you can also have any other cheese. Cheese has good amount of protein so you can combine it (or even have it on it’s own, if you like cheese like I do) with fruits, veggies, nuts and you can always have that as an easy healthy protein breakfast.

Overnight oats

These take few minutes of prep in the evening and in the morning you just add some topping and devour this deliciousness. There are so many different recipes you can make (and Pinterest is full of them) that they just never get boring. This is a high protein breakfast that feels like a treat.

Protein balls

So easy to make and quite a delicious way to get your protein. You can also carry these around easily and have them as a snack at anytime.


You can whip up a smoothie that is loaded with vitamins and protein in just a few minutes! And what I highly recommend is that you prep your smoothie ingredients ahead as that makes it so much easier. Chop up everything you need to make your protein smoothie of choice, place it in a bag and keep it ready to go in a freezer. Then in the morning, you can just toss everything from the freezer bag into a blender and you’re done!

Chia seed pudding

Make a chia seed pudding the night before and have a super healthy breakfast waiting for you in the morning. Not only is it high in protein, but chia seeds are so good for you, you really wanna give this one a try!
