Default Breakfast ideas that are high protein but NOT savory?

I can't do savory in the morning. My ideal breakfast is like coffee/muffin or cereal. However I know these aren't really healthy and I think I need more protein.

Any ideas for breakfast that's healthy, proteiny, but NOT savory like eggs or fake meat (I'm a vegetarian)?

What about a high protein cereal? I think Kashi is the one I'm thinking of, they make one that they advertise as having as much protein as an egg.

Or Greek yogurt with fruit and granola.

Steel-cut oats with peanut butter and nuts?
Cottage cheese?
Ooh, breakfast quinoa porridge!

Nuts? I generally eat a handful of almonds, a banana, and some OJ.

You could always just do a protein-packed smoothie, too.

I do a smoothie that has whey powder, banana, frozen berries, honey and milk. It has 20+ g of protein.

Thats exactly my breakfast some mornings too

I also love a hard boiled egg on ezekial toast with a little mayo and lettuce and tomato. Sprinkled with red pepper of course.

That green smoothie with peanut butter, yogurt, bananas, and spinach sounded really good too.

There's not much to it. You just cook it plain and then add sweetener, milk, nut butter, fruit, or whatever else you like. Or you can cook it like porridge from the get-go.
Here are some examples:

I make "quick oats" for breakfast with this basic recipe

1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup greek yogurt

mix and let sit in the fridge overnight. You can add in any kind of fruit, nuts, or granola or spices to suit your indiviual taste. You can eat it cold or nuke it a bit to warm it up.

I do this too, but I add 1tbsp LSA and 2tbsp oat bran, plus a little extra milk, plus sweetener and vanilla, depending on what fruit I'm using.

I like an oatmeal custard now and then.

1. Beat one egg and add 1 tsp vanilla. Set aside.

2. Cook 1/2 cup Old-Fashioned oats in 1 cup of milk on the stove. Just as it starts to boil, add the beaten egg plus vanilla. Stir frequently and somewhat vigorously for one minute.

3. Pour in bowl and allow to cool for a minute or so. Add whatever toppings you like. Enjoy.

This is REALLY good with fresh blueberries.

This sounds GOOD...I think I'll try this Saturday morning. Do you have to temper the egg when you add it to prevent it from clumping?

I like Kashi Go Lean Crunch - Honey Almond and Flax variety. It does claim to have as much protein as an egg, plus plenty of fiber.

Some of the ideas above sound yummy!
