Clean Eats | French Toast!

Have you figured out how much I love breakfast yet? If not, let me tell you It’s my absolute favorite. I’d rather eat breakfast than any other meal… in fact I eat breakfast foods most of the day, mostly because I admit that I don’t usually eat breakfast until about 10am. But still, I have no shame in my breakfast love! What is one of my favorite breakfast foods? French Toast… unfortunately it isn’t Β usually considered a “healthy” meal.

Or is it?

Well, in short, yes it can be. Firstly your bread choice is key. Are you using Texas Toast bread? White enriched bread? Maybe you are using a seemingly healthy bread that is high in fat and sodium (check those labels!) Today’s recipe calls for Ezekiel Bread. I use Ezekiel 4;9 (usually I use the low sodium kind, but they were out so I grabbed the regular.)

Healthy French Toast

 

The other important ingredient? Protein!

Ingredients & Directions:

  • 2-3 egg whites, 1 whole egg (you can omit the whole egg if you prefer all whites)
  • 1 TBS vanilla protein
  • Several dashes of “pumpkin pie spice” (or plain cinnamon if you prefer)
  • A splash of vanilla extract
  • Fruit of choice
  • Agave or Maple Syrup
  1. Cut Ezekiel bread in half
  2. Crack egg whites/egg into a bowl
  3. Add protein, cinnamon and vanilla- whisk well
  4. Dip the pieces (all sides) of bread one at a time and place in a heated pan with coconut oil
  5. Cook until golden brown on each side
  6. Arrange on plate, add fruit toppings (in addition to fruit pecans, almonds and walnuts and a spoonful of almond or greek yogurt are also great!) and drizzle with agave or maple syrup.

Then dive in and feel like you have indulged πŸ˜‹

“You Can’t Be Sad

When You’re

Eating Breakfast.”

I’ll admit it’s not the same as regular french toast, but it’s delicious and if you love breakfast as much as me it’s a definite win. I couldn’t get away with eating pancakes, waffles and french toast as much as I do if I didn’t healthily them! (some day I’ll have to share the Nutella stuffed french toast I make when I’m not feeling the healthy vibes)

Hope you enjoy!

  • Yummy! I love French toast! Of course, I looked mine with bacon, banana and maple syrup, so not exactly healthy, but I could drop the bacon. It’s a bit of a rare treat for our house. It’s a great way to mix up your eggs on toast though. Bon appetit!
