One of my favorites is oatmeal with peanut flour and sliced banana.

We make a sort of frittata that is basically tofu scramble w/ veggies encased in a chickpea flour base. It reheats easily and would be high in protein thanks to tofu + chickpeas. We seriously just scramble tofu with spices and veggies (and some cheese if you like) and then pour it into a basic socca batter (1 cup chickpea flour, 1 cup water, a little olive oil & salt) and then cook in cast iron pan in the oven.

(socca recipe we use as a base: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/19/dining/191mrex.html)

I want to do this so badly now but I don't think I have enough chickpea flour!

Mind blown. Can't stop thinking of this socca scramble magic frittata.

I make the Tofulish breakfast: red lentils and quinoa cooked together in a 1:1 ratio (with 2:1 water plus broth powder), once it's cooked I add a handful or two of spinach and let it wilt down, then add nooch, braggs and sriracha. So filling and full to the brim with protein.

Eating this for breakfast/brunch right now, except instead of spinach I added a ton of kale. So tasty and nourishing!

Yeah! It's great over toast. And with ketchup if that floats your boat. If I'm feeling like I need a little fat to start the day I add a spoonful of tahini.

I also like to make a big batch on Sunday night then portion it out and just pop it in the microwave on work days because I am not very functional in the morning.


Yum! I like savory breakfast, but feel like I don't have time for it. This is doable and sounds yummy...like when I eat leftover Indian food for breakfast.

i just made some omega carrot cake cookies from oh she glows, they're awesome.

also, dorayaki- the process takes a while on a sunday but if you individually wrap them they keep for at least a week, and it's beans in a pancake [good for my kid who hates breakfast].

UGH! I had found *just* enough chickpea flour in my cabinet to do this and I was SO excited. I cooked up some tofu scramble and mixed the socca ingredients together.........then I saw the weevils.

I like tofu scramble on a sammich.

My other current favorite is the sprouted wheat bagels from Trader Joe's, which I cut in half and spread with cream cheese, throw in a thick slice or two of beefsteak tomato, sprinkle with salt (pepper optional), and then eat that. Really delicious, and definitely holds me through till lunch.

I have GOT to try the Tofulish breakfast, though, that sounds SO GOOD!

Lately I have been making really fast breakfast wraps. REALLY high in protien, and super fast

Half a whole wheat tortilla
Hummus + Salsa
1 vegan sausage patty cut into strips (I like the new Simply Truth organic ones)

It takes like 2 minutes to make.

I really have a ton of these. But how about my Pinterest board of high protein foods? I'm more lenient about the carbs on this list (my diabetes does best if I eat a small amount of carbs at breakfast), but it's still about 2:1 ratio of carbs to protein.

I eat just a plain PBJ on sprouted grain bread that totals 18g of protein. My other go-to is homemade baked beans on toast. That's about as easy as it gets! I have been guilty of doing the vegan "tuna salad" for breakfast too if I have leftovers. And don't forget the pickle :-P

Ha, I meant that in reply to the OP, but you do know there are sperm banks out there where you can purchase splooge for your breakfasts.

I just did this but with Kittee's Pudla instead of socca. I used my regular scramble recipe and then popped it on top of the pudla batter as soon as it went into the pan. It was great and I think it worked out at around 27g of protein because I threw a chopped up slice of veggie bacon into the pudla batter along with the veggies. Now to see if this powers me through spin class better than a Clif bar!

I was just thinking about this recently because protein powder is expensive and I don't always have time to make a smoothie in the morning anyway. So I was thinking of doing a chia seed pudding with half coconut milk, half hemp milk, lots of fresh berries and maybe some nut butter and seeds. This really appeals to me because I can make it the night before and let it sit in the fridge and then breakfast is ready! Sometimes it's hard trying to find gluten free morning recipes that don't take anytime or prep in the morning or that don't need to be cooked the night before.

Besides from the good ol' tofu scramble, I like to make tortilla de patatas (spanish potato omelette), vegan okonomiyaki (i have a few recipes pinned on my pinterest food board, but usually I just make it with 1 to 1 chickpea flour and water, black salt, finely chopped cabbage, some soaked hijiki, scallions and whatever else sounds good and top it off with some homemade okonomiyaki sauce and my favorite furikake.

I also have this AMAZING chickpea flour frittata recipe, that a ppk'er sent me on facebook once - sadly I've forgotten who it was, because I saved it on my computer! But I'll share it anyway, because something this good should be shared with everyone (and please take credit if it is your recipe, and THANK YOU, this recipe saved my broke student asparagus a million times):

Cook 1 c onion in 1/4 c margarine, with 1/2 t basil and 1/4 t marjoram, and then add 2 c broccoli and cook a few more minutes. I used about 2/3 c sofrito (from Viva Vegan) instead of the marg and onion, and spinach instead of broccoli.
In a separate pan, whisk together 4 c water, 2 t salt, and 1 1/2 c chickpea flour. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook uncovered - whisking frequently - for 20 minutes. Combine with the vegetables and 1/4 t black salt. Pour into oiled tart pan, cover, and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Bake at 350 for 20 min and then a few minutes under the broiler to brown.


You can use ANY filling you like - I love potatoes, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, any greens - and if I'm lazy I love to use a pack of frozen ratatouille mix. It keeps really well in the fridge, and is completely sliceable and good. I use this mix when making tartes as well - the key is to sauté/roast the veggies first, so they're super tasty, and then mix them with the cooked chickpea flour. You don't even really need to broil it - it's good as soon as it sets. I have used a smaller amount of olive oil instead of the margarine, and it's been just as delicious.
