This sweet breakfast will set you up for the day to come with a whopping 34g of protein, 20g of fats, and loads of healthy carbs. It’s gluten-free.

Then you know the struggle is real. The struggle to not eat muffins or doughnuts for breakfast Every.Single.Day.

After all, you’re an adult now. So, you can eat anything you want for a high protein breakfast, right?

This protein breakfast bowl is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. The raspberries, dried cranberries, and blueberries add natural sweetness.

The creaminess of the oatmeal and Greek yogurt is balanced by the crunchiness of the walnuts and sunflower seeds.

I love how flexible it is; anyone can adjust it to their taste. And that’s why it’s soo good!

What is a Power Bowl?

A Power Bowl is simply a meal or bowl packed with nutritious ingredients, aka “power foods”.

It typically consists of 4 things:

  • Grains
  • Vegetables or Fruit
  • Protein
  • Sweetener
  • Crunchy Toppings

Why Is This Breakfast Bowl So Good?

It’s high in protein. In fact, one serving provides a whopping 34 grams of protein.

It’s also high in healthy carbs like fiber. A serving provides almost 70% of your daily fiber needs- that’s a whole lotta fiber!

It is also naturally gluten-free. Thus, it makes for a filling, nutritious, macro-rich breakfast!

Ingredients and Substitutes

  • Unsweetened almond milk (1 ½ cup) – or any other milk.
  • Rolled oats (1 cup) – you can use any other oats as well.
  • Vanilla protein powder (1 tbsp)
  • Chia seeds (1 tbsp)
  • Water (½ cup)
  • Greek yogurt (¼ cup) – or coconut yogurt for a dairy-free option.
  • Blueberries (¼ cup) – or any other berries.
  • Raspberries (¼ cup) – or any other berries.
  • Dried cranberries (1 tbsp) – or any other berries.
  • Walnuts (2 tbsp) – or any other nut: peanuts, pecans, Brazil nuts, etc.
  • Sunflower seeds (1 tsp) – or pumpkin seeds.
  • Maple syrup (1 tsp) – or honey, agave, or any other sweetener.

How to Make Protein Breakfast Bowl

Step 1. Heat up the saucepan to medium-high heat. Then, add in unsweetened almond milk, rolled oats, protein powder, chia seeds, and water.

Step 2. Give it a mix, bring it to boil, and then lower the heat. Let the porridge simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Step 3. Transfer the porridge to a bowl.

Step 4. Top it all up with Greek yogurt, blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, walnuts, and sunflowers. To finish up, I’m going to drizzle a little bit of maple syrup over it.

How to Make This Breakfast Bowl Vegan?

Just replace the Greek yogurt with your favorite non-dairy yogurt. Some good options would be soy milk yogurt, almond milk yogurt, or coconut milk yogurt.

Also, make sure you use a vegan vanilla protein powder like this one here.

    Very tasty, but could barely finish half, and I think 641 calories and 20 grams of fat is alot for breakfast anyway.
    Your recipes looked interesting.

      It’s a filling breakfast on purpose! 🙂 That’s why I called it a protein bowl. I personally love to start with a large breakfast because I work out in the afternoon. Thank you for your feedback 🙂

    Made this today, it was very hearty ,but it was a huge helping. This recipe says the serving size was for 1. Is that correct.

    1. Karo @ AllNutritious says:

      Hello Sandra, yes it is very hearty because the bowl has a ton of protein and healthy fats. It is 1 serving. 🙂
