There’s a huge controversy in the breakfast world, though. Are you a waffles, pancakes or French toast person? There is clearly a time and place for them all, but stack them up with butter, syrup and the topping of your choice and it’s sure to be the breakfast of your dreams.

What Do You Need For French Toast?
  • Bread (I use the 45 calorie, Sara Lee brand for this recipe)
  • Liquid Egg Whites
  • Vanilla or Cake Batter Protein Powder
  • Cinnamon

How Do You Make Protein Packed French Toast?

To make protein packed french toast, you basically follow the same principals as regular french toast. Begin by setting out a small to medium sized bowl, a frying pan or griddle and all the ingredients. First, heat up your griddle or pan and spray it lightly with zero-calorie cooking spray. In your bowl, combine the liquid egg whites, protein powder and cinnamon. *I’ve used a hand-held frother to mix and ensure that there are no clumps while creating a fluffier mixture. If you are feeling extra sweet, add a dash of liquid stevia, skinny syrup or vanilla/cake batter extract.

Once mixed, lightly dip the slice of bread into the egg white mixture and flip so both sides are completely coated. Carefully transfer the saturated bread to the frying pan or griddle and cook for about 3-5 minutes per side (depending on heat). Each side should be golden brown. Complete for the entire batch.

French Toast Toppings:

The best part of dessert breakfast, or this protein packed French toast, is all the toppings that you can add! Here’s a few other options:

  • Go Traditional: Butter and Syrup
  • Keep It Sweet: Protein Cookie Dough or Frosting
  • Add a Crunch: Cereal
  • Increase Protein: Greek Yogurt and Pudding Mix
  • Make it Savory: Use one serving of the French toast as slices of bread in an egg sandwich add an egg, bacon, cheese and strawberry jam for a unique twist on a Monte Christo sandwich!

Plan Ahead!

French Toast freezes great! Make a huge batch and throw them all in the freezer. Whether you want one serving now and save some for later, these are an easy addition to a weekly meal prep.

Rather than spending extra money on the frozen protein pancakes or waffles in the store, make these up and freeze them. They’re also way more nutritious than the store bought french toast sticks packed with sugar. To re-heat, either put them in the toaster or microwave for about a minute, depending on the microwave.

One other great option is to cut the French toast into slices and TA-DA! FRENCH TOAST STICKS. Not only is it a healthier breakfast option, but a great grab and go for kids..or husbands.
