So it’s been a while since I’ve had some deliciously sweet and cooked to perfection French Toast. Actually, come to think of it, it’s been a while since I’ve had any French Toast for that matter. It’s one of those meals I would avoid due to guilt and ‘fear’ of it being high in calories, when in actuality, it can be extremely low in cals and create a perfect Fat, Carb, and Protein Ratio. So, when I actually had my FIRST weekend home in forever, I knew it would be a perfect opportunity to experiment with some cooking in the kitchen. Not only was I looking to relax and cook at home, but there’s nothing I love more than homemade breakfasts which is something I don’t get to enjoy during the work week. Anyway, I’ll stop talking and get to the recipe!
So the name of this creation is quite a handful, yet it still doesn’t do this justice…!
~Pumpkin-Chia Ezekiel French Toast Stuffed with Nilla-Apple Protein Fluff and topped with warm Blueberry “Syrup”, a drizzle of Honey, and a sprinkle of Cinnamon~
-2 Low-Sodium Ezekiel Slices
For the Mix:
-2 Egg Whites
-1 TBSP of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
-1 Drop of Vanilla Stevia
-1/2 tsp of maple extract
-1 tsp of chia seeds
-Cinnamon and Pumpkin Spice
-2 TBSP of Organic Pumpkin Puree
For the ‘Protein Fluff’:
-1/4 Cup of Plain Greek Yogurt
-1/2 Scoop of Vanilla Whey Protein
-1 TBSP of Unsweetened Apple Sauce
^Mix all of this together.
-Frozen Blueberries (Warmed in Micro)
-Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
Directions: On a non-stick pan, switch to med/high heat and add 1/2 TBSP of coconut oil. Then dip your 2 pieces of bread into the mixture and add to the pan. Cook until golden on each side. Make sure to keep an eye on them so they don’t burn! Layer 1 slice onto the plate, add 1/2 the protein fluff, then layer the other slice, add the rest of the protein fluff and top with berries, honey, and seasonings of your choice! Feel free to put it into the micro for an additional 15-25 seconds to make it a little softer/warmer if needed.
Enjoy and hope it’s just as good as eating banana pancakes…on a Sunday Mornin’ (Cue Jack Johnson) 🙂
