I'm not a morning person either. I've done green smoothies that I've blended the night before, have preportioned egg whites and veggies to microwave in the morning and protein bars. Lately, I've been doing baked oatmeal:
2 c. oats, precooked to be dry and cooled (I use quick cooking w/2c. water)
1/2 c. plain Greek yogurt
1 c. + 2T egg whites
1 T vanilla extract
generous portion of cinnamon
fruit (I've done 2 mashed bananas + 1.5 servings frozen blueberries, 2 mashed bananas + 2 c. frozen sliced strawberries, crasins + raisins; I also tried a pumpkin/nut experiment, but I didn't like the results)
sweetener of choice
Mix all the ingredients together. Spray a 9x9 pan with cooking spray and pour in oatmeal mixture. Shake pan to level mixture. Bake at 350F for 30-40 minutes until set.
I cut it up into 6 servings for about 200 cal. and 10g protein. I toss it in the microwave for 1-2 minutes and pair with some fruit, and it keeps me full until lunch.
