High Protein Make Ahead Freezer Breakfast Tacos

We all love these make ahead breakfast tacos. I make big batch on a weekend while I’m already making bacon or eggs for everyone. I basically use this recipe from Bowl of Delicious. Start with your choice of tortilla (I use basic flour for my kids and usually make a few low carb ones for myself). From there add a combination of whichever ingredients you like:

  • Bacon, Sausage, or Turkey Sausage
  • Shredded cheese
  • Hashbrowns (The frozen Hashbrowns from Trader Joe’s work well. Just bake then cut long ways into thirds)
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Black Beans or Kidney Beans- another great source of protein and fiber for those who don’t love meat or eggs.

Wrap them individually in foil and store in the freezer in a ziplock bak. When you are ready to serve them, put them in the refrigerator the night before to thaw. In the morning toss them in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes in and they are ready to eat. If you have time add salsa, guac, or scallion. Or take it in the car to go!

Kodiak Cake Pancakes

Kodiak Pancake Mix has 15 grams of protein on its own. If you are really serious about getting a high protein breakfast use milk and/or eggs when preparing them. This adds up to another 10 grams of protein per serving. These can also be made in big batches ahead of time and kept in a large ziplock bag in the refrigerator for the week. We pop ours in the toaster to warm them up. Add your favorite nut butter for an added boost or protein and fats. Obviously syrup or fruit on top is always a hit!

There are so many other ways that Kodiak Pancake mix can be used. I can’t wait to try their recipes for pumpkin oat muffins or these kitchen sink cookies.

Protein Smoothie Bowls for kids

High Protein Smoothie Bowl

This is the most requested breakfast at our house. Combine your favorite frozen berries, Milk (you can use Fairlife milk for extra protein- any soy, nut, or oat milk will also work), and your favorite protein powder. Blend in your blender until just combined. It’s okay if it is thick and there are still some small chucks of fruit since you will be using a spook and bowl, not drinking it through a straw. I do feel like have a high quality blender makes all the difference to get the right “smoothie bowl” consistency. I’ve had my Vitamix for years and it’s just the best. My kids are suckers for toppings. Add our favorite granola, shredded coconut, chopped nuts, chia seeds, sliced strawberries, or a few chocolate chips.
