10 High-Protein Breakfast Ideas that Keep You Full

High-protein breakfast ideas

Most of us love breakfast: smoothies, granola with yogurt, pancakes, donuts! But many of our breakfasts are missing or coming up short on one major macronutrient: protein.

Protein helps us build lean muscle tissue and burn fat, supports our metabolism, even bolsters the health of our organs. It also critically helps keep us satiated, so a high-protein breakfast will prevent us from getting hungry a couple of hours later.

How Much Protein Do You Need?

If your goal is to maintain general health, mobility and well-being as you age, then, for most people, consuming about 50 percent of your body weight in grams of protein per day is about what you want.

Let’s say you weigh 160 pounds and you’re looking to be generally healthy, then shoot for about 80 grams of protein per day from your diet. Therefore, if you’re eating three meals a day, you’re going to be getting about 25 grams of protein per meal.

Is your breakfast getting close to that mark? Most likely not. Below are 10 high-protein breakfasts that do.

How to Add Extra Protein to Your Breakfast

The simplest way to add more protein to your breakfast is featuring high-protein foods along with certain supplements. Here are some ideas:

10 High Protein Breakfasts

1. Dark Chocolate Protein Smoothie

Powered by Bone Broth Protein Chocolate, this dark chocolate protein smoothie uses a carefully chosen blend of ingredients and delivers a perfect macronutrient snack. At 224 calories, it contains 18 grams of healthy carbs, 7 grams of performance fats and 23 grams of protein.

Chocolate churro smoothie

2. Chocolate Churro Smoothie

A churro with chocolate is divine but in a smoothie? Turns out it’s even better than it sounds, with these flavors coming together beautifully.

It’s also the perfect smoothie recipe to use the most popular collagen powder out there: Multi Collagen Advanced Lean (cinnamon flavor)! It delivers 27 grams of protein.

3. Blueberry Lemon Chia Seed Pudding

Have you ever had a chia seed pudding for breakfast? It’s delicious and works well. But one shortcoming of most chia seed pudding recipes is relatively low protein content.

That's not the case with this healthy chia seed pudding powered by Bone Broth Protein Vanilla. Each serving provides 18.3 grams of protein.

4. Collagen Overnight Oats

Oats by themselves are a good breakfast but not very high in protein. This basic overnight oats recipe adds collagen protein to get to 21 grams of protein per serving.

Toss gluten-free rolled oats (which can be substituted for steel cut oats if desired), chia seeds, Multi Collagen Protein, almond milk and the berries of your choice into a jar or other airtight container at night. Next morning … breakfast!

5. Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Baked goods are a popular breakfast treat, but they also tend to be filled with largely empty carbohydrates and scant protein. After raising your blood sugar, the sugar crash comes an hour or so later when you get hungry again.

Here’s a macronutrient (nearly equal amount of protein, fat and carbohydrates, the healthy kind!) “breakfast cookie” that you can make yourself. A two-cookie serving also offers 39 grams of good-for-you carbs (oat flour and oats), 26 grams of fats and 20 grams of protein.

Chocolate protein donuts

6. Double Chocolate Collagen Donuts

Some of us have certain requirements each morning. It can go like this: coffee, collagen, donut. Now, you can combine those last two fabulous ideas into one, but with a donut recipe that's actually high in protein.

Two donuts equal 18 grams of carbs, 28 grams of performance fats and 24 grams of protein.

7. Paleo Protein Pancakes

Pancakes are a favorite breakfast for most of us, but often they are too low in protein and high in starchy carbs to make them a truly healthy, energizing breakfast.

Meet these Paleo protein pancakes made with Bone Broth Protein, eggs and almond meal. They include a whopping 36 grams of protein per serving and are delicious.

Egg bites recipe

8. Egg Bites, 4 Ways

Egg bites are a great, new and easy way to make eggs. These small muffin-sized bites are a super healthy, fun way to have breakfast. They pair well with a protein shake, some fresh fruit or work well by themselves.

They’re also high in protein, moderate in fat and low in carbs, so they fit most eating styles well — that includes the keto diet, Paleo diet or low-carb. Three egg bites is around 360 calories and contains 6 grams of carbs, 24 grams of fat and 27 grams of protein.

9. Spinach Goat Cheese Frittata

This frittata takes only 35 minutes from start to finish and is the perfect addition to your breakfast (or even brunch or dinner) menu. The recipe takes inspiration from popular frittatas featured on Bon Appétit, but includes Bone Broth Protein in the mixture, for some extra protein that offers gut support.

Half this frittata is just over 300 calories and 30 grams of protein.

10. Collagen Coffee

Start your day with coffee? Want to take it a step further and create a cup of coffee that will keep you going for hours? Try this collagen coffee recipe that's full of performance fats as well as collagen. One serving delivers 112 calories, 5 grams of protein and no carbs. Have with your egg or baked good recipe from above.
