So who knew that French Toast and Eggy Bread were the same thing?! Well, not me until a few weeks ago!!
I used to love Eggy Bread as a kid and was super excited to discover Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin Bread which I knew would make the experience even more pleasurable! Ezekiel bread (available from MuscleFood – use NIC5 for 5% off!) is made from sprouted whole grains and legumes which means that it is packed with fibre and goodness and it also releases it’s energy slowly (there’s ZERO nasties on the ingredients list!).
Eggy Bread/French Toast is seriously SO easy and quick to make (as shown in the video) and you can even make a protein version too – simply add one extra tbsp of milk and 30g of Whey Protein – I used Vanilla Ice-Cream flavour from Protein Dynamix (use NIC20 for 20% off!). My sister in particular LOVED the protein version and said it tasted just like a cinnamon bun – I knew that I had to share this recipe with you after that comment!!
This Healthy (Protein) French Toast Recipe is perfect for breakfast, a snack or dessert and you can get creative with the toppings such as desiccated coconut, berries, dried fruit, yoghurt or even dark chocolate chips – the options really are endless!
Do let me know if you give this recipe a go!
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp almond milk
- 2 slices cinnamon & raisin bread*
*If you don’t have any cinnamon & raisin bread use a fruit loaf bread & add 1 tsp cinnamon.
**I use Coconut Oil (Use NIC5 for 5% off!) because I like the taste but feel free to use rapeseed (vegetable) oil.
***Optional: To make Protein French Toast (as shown in the two pictures below) simply add 30g whey protein & 1 extra tbsp milk to the mix.
In a bowl whisk together the egg and almond milk until combined.
Transfer the mixture to a shallow bowl and dip in the bread, coating one side with the mixture before flipping and coating the other side.
Meanwhile heat a small amount of coconut oil in a small pan and once hot add the bread - fry on each side for a couple of minutes until golden and repeat for the second slice.
Slice the bread in two and top with your chosen toppings and enjoy!
