I share the best high protein vegan breakfast recipes on the web from the top plant-based and healthy food bloggers including scrambles, muffins, burritos and more!
Vegan food is hot right now, and for good reason. I’m always a big fan of people trying to eat more plant-based, whether they subscribe to the vegan label or not. But let’s be honest- most of the typical high protein breakfast foods we often think of are big no-nos for the vegan diet. Eggs, yogurt, meat, milk and others are all out!
But we know that getting protein in the morning is super important to promoting satiety all day long, so I wanted to help my fellow plant-based foodies out there fix with these high protein vegan breakfast recipes.
These high protein vegan breakfast recipes feature pulses, tofu, quinoa, vegan protein powder and more to help everyone start their day off right.

These all look so amazing! It’s hard to decide which one I want to try first – but I’m thinking the chickpea flour scramble. Can’t wait!

This is a great round up! I’m meeting with a vegan athlete soon, so will definitely share this!

That chickpea flour scramble sounds super interesting! I haven’t had much experience working with it, but am so curious to try it!
Posts like these are so great because they do all the searching for you. It’s a one stop shop for awesome recipes to try. These all look like great breakfast options. But of course that chocolate peanut butter one sure caught my eye.
Carmy @ carmyy.com says
I have a whole bag of chickpea flour and I think I’ll have to try the scramble!

Yes! Awesome plan

Mariangelica @ Chasing Littles says
This list looks so good! Can I have them all? Haha. No really. Thanks for the round up. Starting your day with protein is the best way to start! I like having more variety now!
Christina Bauer says
Breakfast is my absolute favorite meal of the day, and what I would eat all day long if I could! So, this roundup is pretty much my jam. I would (and probably will) make and eat all of these!! It’s fun to switch up between sweet and savory breakfasts. Normally, I make a batch of whatever I plan to eat for the week on Sundays, so it’s easy for grab-and-go and eat at the office. So, cue the frozen smoothies, egg cups and prepared burrito fillings!!
