Traditional homemade French toast contains a high amount of sugar and fat.
But what if we can swap some of its ingredients for making healthier toast?
How about using organic protein powder instead of sugar to make healthy homemade protein French toast?
Let’s get the ingredients now.
What Are The Ingredients?
You only need a few simple ingredients which are:
* Half cup of organic protein powder.
* Half cup of milk.
* One teaspoon of cinnamon powder (a must in any French toast).
* Half teaspoon of vanilla extract.
* Two large eggs.
* Three large egg whites.
* 5 – 6 slices of whole-meal bread.
You can use any protein powder flavor such as vanilla or chocolate. I like the chocolate flavor more.
Any milk is fine such as almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk, or low-fat dairy milk. but I’ll choose almond milk.
If you are afraid of consuming more cholesterol or calorie here, just take off the egg yolks and use the egg whites instead.
Organic protein powder has got its natural sweetness and a reasonable amount of healthy fats, carbs, and protein nutrients. A great substitution for refined sugar.
How To Make It?
1. Put together all the ingredients (except the bread) in a mixing bowl and whisk them well.
2. One by one, dip the sliced bread into the mixture, and make sure each side is soaked well with the mixture.
3. In medium heat, get ready a pan with a few small drops of vegetable oil such as olive oil on it.
4. Add the bread slices onto the pan, toast it for about 5 minutes, and don’t forget to flip over to the other side. Just make sure both sides are cooked evenly.
5. Repeat the process with all the remaining slices.
Tada … ready to serve on a plate.
If you like, sift with icing sugar or sugar-free maple syrup on the toast.
