These vegan breakfast recipes are packed with protein to keep you energized all morning long! Whether you need to refuel after a workout or you want to stay full until lunchtime, these recipes are filled with plant-based protein!

It can be hard to find breakfast recipes that are high in protein and vegan. Even most vegetarian breakfast recipes rely on eggs or yogurt to create a balanced meal. But luckily, there are lots of delicious, vegan breakfast options out there! Before we dive into the recipes, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite high-protein vegan ingredients that I like to use in my breakfast recipes.

High Protein Vegan Breakfast Ingredients

  • Tofu– Does it sound crazy to eat tofu for breakfast? Not if you scramble it! Believe it or not, tofu makes an amazing substitute for scrambled eggs. It’s delicious in breakfast burritos but it can also be eaten alone, with seasoning and hot sauce! Try it seasoned with nutritional yeast for an extra boost of protein.
  • Chia Seeds– These are a great way to add a little protein to your favorite smoothie, but they can even be used in muffins and pancakes! I use chia seeds in my vegan blueberry muffins and it’s an easy way to add a little more protein and fiber, while also providing a binding agent instead of an egg!
  • Almond Flour– This is a great way to add protein to your favorite baked goods. My Applesauce Almond Flour Muffins and my Pumpkin Almond Flour Muffins are both a great breakfast option!
  • Whole Wheat Bagels– While bagels don’t tend to be the most nutritious option, there are tons of new high protein bagel options on the market! I love Dave’s Killer Bread for high protein, lower calorie bagles that taste great!
  • Quinoa- This little seed is high an protein and it can be used as an oatmeal replacement in grain bowls as well as granola! It’s a great ingredient for vegans because it’s also a complete protein, meaning it contains all the essential amino acids.
  • Peanut Butter– Peanut butter contains a hefty amount of protein and you probably have some in your pantry! Try it drizzled on your bowl of oatmeal or blended into your next smoothie!

Now that we’ve covered some of the basic protein sources, let’s dive into the recipes! I hope this list of high protein vegan breakfast recipes helps you start your day on the right foot! Don’t forget to pin these recipes so you can find them later!
