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)
4 slices of Ezekiel Bread
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)
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.)
