High Protein French Toast
French Toast is my all-time FAVORITE breakfast food. I have been avoiding french toast since it is not the healthiest breakfast choice.. until now! :-) I made this french toast with cinnamon raisin Ezekiel Bread. (Food for Life brand).
Ezekiel Bread is made from sprouted grains.One study found that eating sprouted grain breads (not Ezekiel, but similar to it) reduced the blood sugar response and increases the glucagon response when compared to eating unsprouted breads; 11-grain, 12-grain, white, or sourdough.
2 slices of cinnamon raisin Ezekiel Bread
1/4 cup egg whites
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1T unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Grease a griddle with non-stick cooking spray or coconut oil and set on medium-high heat.
Whisk all ingredients together well and dip each slice of break in the mixture, soak up as much as possible.
Put slices of battered bread onto griddle. Pour the rest of the left-over batter on top of the bread. Cook on each side until done.
I served mine with half of a banana and Walden Farm's sugar-free, no-cal pancake syrup.
Makes 1 serving.
