7 High-Protein Breakfasts Ready in 5 Minutes or Less

Power up your morning by making these seven breakfasts with 15 grams of protein or more, including tofu scrambles, smoothie bowls, and microwave egg oatmeal.

Power up your morning, and fast.

By Alexa Tucker, Self

If there's one meal of the day that really needs to be quick, it's breakfast. While 15 or 20 minutes seems relatively quick for, say, a dinner recipe, nobody has that kind of time on most mornings.

That doesn't mean you need to be limited to cereals, granola bars, and coffee shop pastries, though. If you've got just five minutes, you've got time to whip up a breakfast that's healthy and contains enough protein to keep you going all morning.

Of course, if you truly aren't hungry when you wake up, there's no need to force feed yourself breakfast. But if you are someone who's ready to nosh first thing (same), these seven recipes require minimal kitchen time with maximum benefit. Each has at least 15 grams of protein, which registered dietitians recommend at every meal (especially at the beginning of your day).
Instead of spending your hard-earned cash grabbing something on the go or skipping breakfast altogether (when you don't want to, that is), try making one of these breakfasts to start your day off on a healthier, homemade note. Plus, cooking yourself a meal can feel like a pretty huge thing to accomplish before 8 A.M., am I right?


Microwave Egg Oatmeal from The Lean Green Bean 

There are only four ingredients in this super-easy recipe, and believe it or not, one of them is an egg—it's an undetectable way to add protein to oats. Get the recipe here.
