Sweet Breakfast Ideas With Protein Powder

In a previous blog post I already talked about macronutrients, and therefore also protein – what does protein do for our bodies? What are good protein sources? And how much should we consume?

There are many animal and plant-based sources of protein, but in everyday life we hardly get past yogurts, drinks and bars with the promising label “High Protein”. Certainly, the manufacturers reach here a little deeper into the marketing trick bag, but generally you can of course support the supply of protein, similar to other nutrients.

I like to use protein powders every now and then. With 20g of protein per 30g of powder, I get a lot closer to my daily protein goal very quickly. But since you do not want to eat the pure powder, you’ll need some delicious recipes.

If you’re looking for some inspiration, you landed in the right spot.

Note: I prefer to use vanilla or chocolate protein powder, so the recipes are sweet breakfast ideas. Protein is the number one nutrient to keep you full , a high protein breakfast makes the time until the next meal fly by.


Protein pancakes are probably the classiest way to give your Sunday morning breakfast a healthier twist. My favorite recipe scores with 44g of protein per serving of 2 pancakes.

Blend 50g rolled oats, 1 banana, 30g protein powder and 9 tbsp liquid egg whites in a food processor. Add a tsp of coconut oil to a frying pan and warm up over medium heat. Add the batter and fry until golden brown on both sides. Serve with some peanut butter and a few blueberries and enjoy.

This breakfast is a real protein bomb even without the powder, with an extra spoonful it becomes an unbeatable start to the day.

Here’s how to do it:

Mix 50g oats with 100ml milk and 30g protein powder and put it in a bowl. Next, top with 100g Greek yogurt. Garnish with cinnamon. Fruits, nuts and nut butters are perfect toppings. I decided to add 1/2 Tbsp Peanut Butter, 1/2 Tbsp Chocolate Almond Butter, 1 Tbsp Puffed Quinoa and 1 Tbsp Peanuts.

The Base

For the base, mix 1 banana, 50g rolled oats, 30g vanilla protein powder and 50g plain yogurt and spread in an ovenproof dish. I used a small springform pan. Bake at 180°C for about 25 minutes and then you can start topping.
