Healthified French Toast Sticks

Posted on

UPDATE: You can now find even more healthified recipes & tips at www.healthynbalanced.com.

 

French Toast is one of my favorite breakfasts and with just a few tweaks, it can easily become a healthy breakfast for you and your family to enjoy!

What did I do to healthify it?

*I used Ezekiel Bread, instead of whole wheat or white bread. Ezekiel bread is made with sprouted grains and contains no yeast. I don’t particularly like Ezekiel bread unless it is toasted. However, it makes an AMAZING French Toast. It can be found in the freezer section of your grocery store.

*I used organic farm eggs.

*I used maple syrup instead of regular sugar-filled syrup.

*I added a couple of teaspoons of vanilla protein powder.

Serves: 2 people (2 slices per person)

Ingredients:

4 slices of Ezekiel Bread

3-4 eggs

1 tbsp. whole milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp cinnamon (plus a few additional shakes on each piece of bread)

1-2 tsp vanilla protein powder (optional)

Pat of butter (for skillet/griddle)

Banana slices (optional)

Maple Syrup

Heat skillet or griddle to medium or medium-high. Mix all ingredients (except bread) in a bowl. Dip bread in bowl (one piece at a time) and coat each side with egg mixture. Put in hot skillet/griddle. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook on each side until done. (It will be golden brown in color.)

Using kitchen scissors, cut bread into “sticks”. Serve with maple syrup and bananas (or the fruit of your choice.)

Hello There ! My name is Tiffany and I am on the journey to find balance in life! Now, I’m not talking about anything kooky or mystical, but real true balance and health in all areas: physical, spiritual, and emotional. I figured I was not the only one looking for these things, and thus this blog was born. I am not an expert in all things healthy nor is my life 100% balanced. However, I have been on this journey for a quite a few years and have learned some things along the way. One of those things is that the start of a healthy and balanced life is a relationship with Jesus Christ, my Savior, my Friend, my Strong Tower, and my Balance in those completely unbalanced moments. If you’d like more information on knowing Jesus Christ, please click here http://www.gotquestions.org/personal-Savior.html Welcome Friend, I look forward to our journey together.

  3. What a great idea to use Ezekial bread! I love that bread, but the hubby – not so much. However, I bet he would love this recipe. We both our french bread lovers, so I’m going to have to try this one!

    • My hubby is the same way. He will eat it toasted but doesn’t exactly like it. As french toast, you can’t tell that it’s ezekiel bread…you may even want to try the ezekiel bread that cinnamon raisin-i bet that would be good as french toast. 🙂
