Vegetarian High Protein Breakfasts

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband tends to have blood sugar issues and so requires protein with breakfast. Can anybody help me brainstorm good vegetarian options that won't compromise my gluten free house? He is lacto-ovo vegetarian, so milk and eggs are fine.


You can put just about anything in an Omelette and I find thy set me up really well for the day. I had spinach, avocado, mushroom onion and tomato in mine this morning :)

I make pancakes that are pretty lower carb and higher in protein but an omelette and bacon will beat it for protein any day, especially if you use syrup.



9 eggs

1/4-1/3 c coconut oil or butter

1.5- 2 cups coconut milk or cream, or milk

2 scoops Vega One protein powder (if you use vanilla, add a 1/4 c of cocoa or the pancakes will be green LOL)

1/2 -1 tsp baking powder

salt to taste

cinnamon to taste

1/2 c flax meal

1/2 c coconut flour

1/4 c hemp seeds

(pinch of bee pollen - optional)

My boys like a handful of choc chips for special mornings


This makes about a dozen medium size pancakes fried about 2-4 minutes per side. I make a batch and freeze them and it's enough for about 6-7 servings for my elementary aged boys.  You may need to add water later as the coconut flour will suck up the moisture and thicken the batter as it sits between batches.


I use the same recipe to make muffins but I subtract the milk and about 3 eggs and add 3 mashed bananas instead. Bake at 375F for 20 minutes.
