Well, in the article they(Monk) don't quote any specific literature so it is hard to say. But, generally speaking don't try to get your scientific education from the popular news. It is all fluff.
Even if there is a study that shows a statistically significant difference in calorie expenditure, how can it be any different from oversleeping by an hour or some other similar event that happens to us many times over throughout the year?
Not to mention, the statment doesn't make any sense. The first part mentions a high protein breakfast, while the latter part mentions calories. High protein doesn't necessarily mean high calories. An egg is high protein, but only 70 calories. You could easily eat many more calories with a pancake breakfast than you would with an omelet.
