8 healthy and delicious high-protein breakfast recipes *without* eggs
Many high-protein breakfasts require cracking an egg or two. But there are many healthy high-protein vegan breakfast recipes that will load you up on the essential nutrient without having to rely on animal products.
It might come as a surprise, but plant are an excellent source of protein. While eggs contain 6 grams each, tofu—which is commonly turned into an egg-like scramble for breakfast—contains 10 grams per 1/2 cup. Impressive, right? And that’s just one of the many options you have when it comes to making a high-protein vegan breakfast without a single egg. From hummus toast to quinoa breakfast cookies, start your day with these nutritious recipes.
Peanut butter is great, but nothing can top this hummus toast recipe when it comes to protein. Between the sprouted bread and spread—which contains hummus, hemp seeds, and sunflower seeds—you’re getting around 11 grams per slice.
Who wouldn’t want to start their day with some cake? These overnight oats taste just like carrot cake thanks to Medjool dates, carrots, almond milk, rolled oats, coconut yogurt, banana, and some spices.
