If you’re on the hunt for delicious protein breakfast ideas to start your day, LFTD. Lifestyle has you covered. They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but that’s only true if you do it right. Eating a high-protein breakfast supports weight loss and muscle growth and helps to decrease snacking throughout the day and at night. Try these tasty recipes next time you’re craving a morning meal that’s packed with protein and flavor.

Vanilla Peanut Butter Protein Powder Waffles

Waffles are a famously decadent breakfast option, but that doesn’t mean they have to be unhealthy. In fact, when it comes to high protein breakfast recipes for weight loss, these waffles are one of the best protein breakfast ideas out there. As an added bonus, they’re surprisingly easy to make! If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can use the batter to make pancakes.


  • ½ cup almond milk (or skim milk for extra protein)
  • 3 tbsp egg whites
  • 8 tbsp PB2 peanut butter powder
  • ½ cup protein pancake mix (any brand)
  • 2 scoops LFTD. Vanilla Whey Protein Powder

To make these waffles, simply mix all the ingredients together to form a batter, pour the batter into your waffle maker, close the lid, and let the magic happen. Top the finished waffle with syrup, jam, fresh fruit, or anything else that floats your boat. Watch this video to see our Founder, Brenton Simmons, make one!

Banana Cinnamon Oatmeal

This is one of the easiest protein breakfast ideas, and it’s perfect when you’re in a rush. Oatmeal is already a great source of fiber and protein, but doctoring it up makes a big difference in boosting macros.


  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • ½ sliced banana
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 scoop LFTD. Vanilla or Chocolate Whey Protein Powder

Add everything except the protein powder to your pot. Heat the mixture at medium-high for approximately 10 minutes until all of the liquid is gone. Stir in the protein powder. Top the oatmeal with fresh banana slices (or other fruit) and top with a dash of cinnamon. Coconut flakes make a great topping too!

Maple Walnut French Toast

If you’re looking to impress, this is one of the more exquisite protein breakfast ideas. It’s also surprisingly easy to make! This French toast goes great alongside our protein powder waffles.


  • 3 slices whole grain bread
  • ½ cup egg whites
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup lightly crushed walnuts
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ scoop LFTD. Vanilla Whey Protein Powder

Combine egg whites, cinnamon, and whey protein powder in a bowl and whisk until a consistent batter is made. Grease your pan and pre-heat it on medium-high. Thoroughly soak each slice of bread in the batter, and place them on the pan. Cook both sides for 1-2 minutes until crispy. Mix your syrup and crushed walnuts together, and drizzle over the top.

Green Machine Protein Smoothie

This is one of those protein breakfast ideas that’s perfect for folks who don’t eat enough veggies. Don’t be scared by the greens — you won’t taste them!


  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 banana (preferably frozen)
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • ½ cup pineapple, mango, berries, kiwi, or any fruit you have on hand
  • 1 cup spinach, kale, or other greens
  • ½ avocado (optional)
  • 1 scoop LFTD. Vanilla Whey Protein Powder

Simply blend everything together until smooth and enjoy! If you forgot to freeze your banana, you can add a few ice cubes for coldness.
