8 Easy-to-Make High-Protein Bodybuilding Breakfast Ideas

Has breakfast gotten to be just one more boring rep, day after day? It can seem hard to keep your bodybuilding meal plan interesting, but in fact, it’s pretty easy. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so check out these 8 easy-to-make high-protein bodybuilding breakfast ideas! 

  1. Banana Protein Muffins

They’re super easy to make, and packed with protein, they’re a healthy choice! Dairy and gluten free.

Ingredients: Bananas, honey, coconut oil, oat flour, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and dark chocolate chips.

Mix the bananas with the wet ingredients. Then stir in the dry ingredients. Pour the mixture into the muffin tin and bake on 350°F for 15 minutes (or until golden brown). 

  1. Pumpkin Vanilla Oatmeal

If you’re a fan of oatmeal, you’ll love pumpkin vanilla oatmeal.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine ½ cup rolled oats and 1 cup water. Microwave it for 2 minutes. 

Remove it from the microwave and stir in 1/3-cup canned pumpkin, 1/2-scoop GAT Sport Whey Vanilla Protein Powder, 1/2-tsp pumpkin pie spice, and 1 tsp maple syrup. Top it with 1/4-cup pecans and 1 tbsp of raisins, and enjoy!

  1. Protein Pancakes

These protein pancakes are made with just 3 ingredients: oats, bananas, and eggs. 

In a blender, run until well mixed: 1 cup oats, 1 banana, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup egg whites, 4 teaspoons baking powder, a pinch of salt, a pinch of cinnamon, 1 to 2 scoops of protein powder, and 2 tablespoons flax meal. 

Heat the griddle to medium-high heat and cook the pancake on each side until the edges look dry (about 1-3 minutes per side). 

  1. Coconut Protein Crêpes

Put 1/2-cup of plain instant oats, 1 cup of mashed banana, 1/2-tsp vanilla extract, 1 tbsp of liquid egg whites, and 1 scoop of Whey Protein into a blender, and mix for 30 seconds. If the mixture is too thick, add a tablespoon of water to smooth it out. 

Cook the crêpes in coconut oil for 20 seconds each side. Remove from heat and fill each crêpe with a filling made of 1 cup plain Greek yogurt, 2 tbsp natural peanut butter, 1/2-tsp vanilla extract, 1 tbsp honey, and 1/2-tsp cinnamon. 

  1. Breakfast Omelette Roll-up 

Season and cook 3 oz ground 99% fat-free turkey breast in a skillet, then drain. In a separate skillet, cook 1 whole egg and 4 egg whites.

Add 2 tbsp of goat cheese, 1 cup of spinach, 1/2-cup of diced red bell peppers, and the fully cooked ground turkey.

Roll the mixture to make a roll-up and wrap in plastic wrap for easy re-heat. 

Pair this recipe with a GAT Sport protein shake for extra protein. 

  1. Sweet Potato Breakfast Boat 

Using your fork, pierce a few holes in your sweet potato. Then, microwave it on high until soft, which usually takes about 5 minutes. Flip the sweet potato over halfway through. If the sweet potato is still hard after 5 minutes, continue cooking it in 1-minute increments, sticking a fork in it to test for your preferred softness. 

Let the potato cool, then cut it in half. Scoop out 3⁄4 of the inside and mash it together with 1/4-tsp of cinnamon and 1/4-tsp of powdered ginger. Then replace the combined contents into the sweet potato skin. 

Top with 1 tbsp natural almond butter, 1/2-cup blueberries, 1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt, and 1/3-cup low-sugar granola. Sprinkle 1/2-tsp of orange zest over the top for the finishing touch. 

Pair this meal with a protein shake to pack a punch. 

  1. Breakfast Burrito

Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in the skillet over medium heat. Then add 1 cup of diced red potatoes and ¼ cup of finely chopped onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft, about 5 min. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper to taste.

Add 8 egg whites and cook, scrambling, until done to taste. Warm 4 whole wheat soft tortillas in the microwave. Spoon the mixture on top and roll up. Best served warm. 

You’ll love pairing this with a GAT Sport protein shake for optimal protein. 

  1. Tofu Ranchero 

Soak 1/4-cup of cashews overnight, then drain and rinse.

In a blender, combine the cashews, 2 tbsp of lemon juice, 2 tbsp of paprika, 1 tsp of cayenne, and 1 tsp of nutritional yeast with a little bit of water, and blend until smooth. Carefully, add water as needed.  

Stop every 30 seconds to stir the mixture. It should be smooth and creamy, but not too runny.

In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook 1/2 a medium-sized onion and 1 chopped jalapeño until soft. Add 1 tbsp of cumin and 1 tbsp of ground oregano, and cook for one minute. 

Reduce heat to low and add 1/2-cup of diced tomatoes and 3 oz of firm tofu. Let this mixture simmer 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Finish with 1/4-cup of chopped cilantro.

Spread the cashew cheese on the tortillas, then top with the tofu mixture.
