4 Ingredient High Protein Breakfast
Breakfast is my absolute favourite meal of the day, and you can bet your bottom dollar that I will eat breakfast before I leave the house. I choose toast or cereal most days, but sometimes I like to switch it up. Porridge or pancakes are great for days when I have a bit more time. But when I started working out, I discovered the beauty of eating a high protein breakfast to give me the energy to start my day.

I generally have all of the ingredients on hand, so it’s often an easy choice. This high protein breakfast is often on high rotation during the winter, as I prefer a warm breakfast to warm me from the inside.

Recipe Notes

  • putting the banana in the microwave makes it much easier to mash, this also helps the peanut butter melt & is easier to mix.
  • I used crunchy peanut butter for added texture
  • this is best made in a mug as you can stir as vigorously as needed without making much mess
  • while I haven't tested it, any kind of milk should work or even water
  • I have also added this recipe to myfitnesspal, just search for 'Breakfast Protein Mug'
  • unfortunately, this recipe isn't my own creation, credit goes to PopSugar
