If you’re like me, you have a major sweet tooth. When you wake up in the morning with a hankering for something sweet, it might be easy to reach for the frozen waffles or cereal box. What if I told you that you could satisfy your cravings while still eating healthy? These high protein breakfasts are packed with protein, carbs and healthy fats that get you energized and ready to tackle the day.

The macronutrients (protein, carbs and fats) and calories for each recipe are listed below for the specific ingredients I used. However, all of the ingredients can be easily substituted with your favorite ingredients or with whatever you have around the house. Feel free to experiment with other ingredients and toppings as you choose.
