High protein breakfast crumble is one of my favorite breakfasts. This easy recipe replicates a classic crumble in a way that offers more protein and less sugar.

It’s sweet, crispy, tart, and the perfect topping for creamy Greek yogurt. It’s also easy to make and reheats well, making it a great breakfast prep option.

With just 358 calories per 1/4 of the pan with 19 grams of protein, this is a very macro-friendly addition to a large bowl of Greek yogurt for a morning protein bomb!

Why You’ll Love My Berry Protein Crumble

A nutritious, wholesome breakfast never tasted so sweet! This high fiber, high protein breakfast tastes like a sweet treat that will keep you full for hours.

Protein Blueberry Crumble Ingredients

To make my blueberry protein crumble, you need:

Frozen Blueberries – I use frozen, organic blueberries for simplicity. However, feel free to use a frozen mixed berries as well.

Cornstarch​ – This helps thicken the juices of the berries so your crumble isn’t a runny mess.

Allulose – Allulose is my natural sweetener of choice due to its neutral taste. A little bit brings out the sweetness of the berries. You could also use your favorite monk fruit or stevia blend if that’s what you prefer.

Vanilla Extract & Lemon Juice – for flavor

Old Fashioned Rolled Oats​ – This is the base of our crumble topping. 

Whey Protein Powder – Vanilla whey protein powder is used to add a punch of protein and sweetness to our crumble topping. I am a fan of protein powder for getting a boost of protein in breakfast meals like these. Legion is my current favorite protein powder brand if you need a recommendation.

Grassfed Butter (melted) – I like to use grassfed butter when I can, but regular butter certainly works just as well! Use whatever you prefer. If you need a butter substitute, try coconut oil.

Cinnamon & Salt​ – For flavor in the crumble topping.

Breakfast Berry Crumble Instructions

Making this nutritious breakfast blueberry protein crumble couldn’t be simpler! Just follow the step-by-step instructions below:

1. Preheat

The first thing you need to do is preheat your oven to 375F.

3. Make the Crumble Topping

Into your mixing bowl, combine oats, cinnamon, vanilla protein powder, powdered peanut butter, melted butter, and sea salt. Mix thoroughly and pour evenly on top of the berries. I just use the same bowl as the berries, but if you’d prefer a dry bowl, you can also choose to use a separate bowl to mix the topping.

4. Bake

Bake at 375F for 20-25 minutes until the whole crumble is hot through the middle. Let cool slightly before serving.

There you have it! It couldn’t be easier to make this blueberry protein crumble!

Quick Tips

Make sure the middle of the crumble is warm before removing from the oven. You don’t want to bake it so long so that the protein powder in the crumble starts to burn, but it does need sufficient time to get warm all the way through.

Swaps & Variations

  • Try swapping blueberries for a variety of different juicy fruits, such as frozen strawberries, blackberries, or cherries! You could also make a diced apple filling for a protein apple crisp–yum! For any of these fruit substitutes, use the same volume (4 cups) as listed in the recipe for blueberries.
  • To make this berry crumble dairy free, use melted coconut oil instead of butter and a vegan protein powder, such as pea protein, instead of whey.
  • You can use any sugar substitute you prefer, as long as that sugar substitute is designed to be a 1:1 sugar replacement. You could also use a little maple syrup or honey, or try leaving the sweetener out to see if it is sweet enough on its own for your preferences.
  • Quick oats can be used in place of the old-fashioned rolled oats if needed.
  • Try adding chia seeds for some additional fiber and crunch!

Serving Suggestions

This is the perfect recipe to make for a hearty high-protein breakfast or a no-added sugar dessert. My main serving suggestion is to serve this on top of some plain Greek yogurt, but…you know what would be amazing if you have a sweet tooth like me? Piled on top of some vanilla ice cream from one of my Ninja Creami recipes!

To make a plain vanilla, simply follow the main base recipe for my Cookies & Creami Ninja Creami but just omit the cookies. πŸ™‚

    Yum! I can’t believe this was so healthy but tasted like a delicious sweet treat. I’ve been trying to get more protein at breakfast but it’s hard because I don’t like meals that are too heavy so early in the morning, and this is the perfect topping for my bowl of greek yogurt. Just delicious!
