While breakfast is optional, we find that starting our day with a high-protein, fiber-filled meal makes us feel great! It gives us higher energy levels throughout the day, keeps us focused, and we find that we snack way less than on days where we skipped breakfast. So, if you are a breakfast eater and are looking for ideas to switch up your mornings, give these easy recipes a try!

1. Chocolate and Banana Protein Pancakes

Delicious, quick and very easy to make.

These pancakes will have you drooling before and after eating them. They are high in protein, loaded with nutrients and very filling.


1 cup Whole Oats
1 large Egg
1.5 cup Plant Milk
1 scoop Chocolate Whey Protein (we use Women’s Best Fit Whey for this mix)
4 drops Women’s Best Vanilla Flavor Drops


1 Banana
2 Strawberries
1 piece Dark Chocolate
1 Tbsp Peanut Butter

How to make it:

Blend/mill your oats to form an oat flour.

Pour the oat flour into a mixing bowl, add the protein powder, plant milk, egg and vanilla drops and combine to form a creamy smooth batter.

Note: you can adjust your plant milk ratio to make your pancakes thick or thin.

Place a circular dollop of batter into a hot non-stick pan and cook on both sides for a few minutes or until firm.

Depending on the size of your pancakes, this mix can yield between 8 and 10 pieces which is enough for 2-3 servings.

Top your pancakes off with a tablespoon of peanut butter, banana slices, strawberry slices and shavings from your piece of dark chocolate.

2. Peanut Butter and Berry Overnight Oats

There are two reasons we love overnight oats.

  1. They are super easy to make and prep in so many ways!
  2. Waking up to a pretty jar of tasty deliciousness feels like the ultimate morning treat.

Ok, there are actually several reasons, but the two above are enough to sell us on, including an overnight oat jar at least once a week! These breakfast treats pack a powerful nutritional punch, taste amazing and are great for those on the go.


1/2 cup Plant Milk
3/4 tbsp Chia Seeds
2 tbsp Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Gluten-free Rolled Oats
1 small Banana (sliced)
1 handful Blueberries


2-3 Sliced Strawberries
1 tsp Ground Flaxseed

How to make it:

Add and stir your plant milk, chia seeds and peanut butter into a mason jar.

Add in the oats, banana and blueberries and stir, ensuring all of the oats have been covered by the plant milk mixture.

Lid or cover the mason jar and place in the fridge overnight.
Upon serving, add your ground flaxseed and strawberry slices and enjoy!

3. Overnight Blueberry & Vanilla Chia Pudding

If you liked the overnight oats, then you will love this super creamy chia pudding recipe!

We are not sure if it is the texture, flavor, or how good our body feels after spooning down this delicious breakfast delight. Chia pudding is just such a feel-good treat and it is so easy to make!


2 tbsp Chia Seeds
1/2 cup Plant Milk or Milk
4-6 drops Women’s Best Flavor Vanilla Drops
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 handful of Blueberries


1 Banana

How to make it:

Add and mix the chia seeds, plant milk and vanilla drops into a mason jar or bowl. Once combined, let the mix sit for 5-7 minutes.

Stir again to break up any clumps, then pour in the cinnamon and blueberries before mixing again.

Place in the refrigerator and let sit overnight.
Upon serving, add one sliced banana as your topping and dust with a little cinnamon.

4. Avocado Toast

Ok! So, avocado toast may sound a little boring, especially as it made its way onto everyone’s social media home feed at one point or another. But it’s still a favorite in our household! This recipe is easy to make and adds a little cafe-like flair to your plate.


1/2 Avocado
1 large Egg
1 piece Wholegrain toast


1 pinch of Chili Flakes
Small handful of Cress (Sakura cress or watercress mix)

How to make it:

Poach or boil your egg.
Mash and smash the avocado into a creamy butter and then spread over your toast. Top with the egg, chili flakes and your choice of cress.

5. Fluffy Greek Omelette

We love a fluffy omelette but adding a little Mediterranean twist once in a while makes all the difference. This Greek omelette recipe is loaded with protein, tastes delicious and will leave you satisfied until lunch.


1/4 Tomato (sliced and diced)
2 Black Kalamata Olives (pitted and cut into pieces)
1oz Feta Cheese (crumbled)
1 tbsp Olive oil
2 large Eggs
A pinch of dried Oregano
A pinch of Salt and Black Pepper

How to make it:

Crack the eggs into a bowl, season with salt and pepper and beat until combined. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium to high heat.
Add the olive oil and ensure the whole pan is coated.
Add the beaten eggs and fry until cooked.

Remove the pan from the heat, and then add the diced tomato, olives, and feta cheese to one side of the omelette.

Fold in half and serve.
Note: If you are feeling extra peckish, add a slice of sourdough toast.
