French toast is one of the easiest breakfasts I make regularly. Even during the week, it is our go to breakfast, especially because my kid loves french toast. However, a traditional French toast does not satiate me through a long morning. I like a protein heavy breakfast to get me through a day of meetings. On certain days, I end up eating lunch at 3 PM and my body goes into a hungry bear mode. If you are one of those people who has a healthy relationship with food intuitively, good on you, I am certainly not that person. I need structure and a set of rules.
No, this is not crazy diet culture. The recipe has bread and maple syrup! This recipe is a simple way of adding protein to satiate your hunger through a busy day. You will not sacrifice taste and the protein powder will not make this french toast dry. I use Orgain Vanilla Protein powder. You can use any protein powder of your choice but if you want to try Orgain, use my code SHARAN30 to get 30% off your first order.
1 Tsp of Cinnamon Powder
1/4 C of Milk
1/4 C of Vanilla Protein Powder
A pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 Tsp of Vanilla Extract
4 slices of Bread
Butter or Ghee for cooking
In a shallow bowl, add all the ingredients (except bread and butter) and mix until well combined.
Heat a fry pan or a cast iron skillet to medium heat. Add the butter and let it melt. I use about 1-2 Tsp for each slice of bread.
Add a slice of bread to the french toast liquid mixture. Since this mixture has protein powder, you may need to stir it often so that the powder doesn't settle to the bottom of your dish.
Poke the bread with a fork 2-3 times. This will allow the flavors to seep into the bread. Flip the bread and coat the other side with the mixture.
Transfer the bread to a pan and cook each side for about 1 minute. It should be golden brown so make sure to check and that way you don't burn your french toast.
Serve with maple syrup and berries.
