High Protein French Toast has 14 grams of protein per slice of bread. Each piece is dipped in an egg batter, pan grilled and filled with fresh fruit!
This was MY breakfast that I made for myself this past Saturday. My husband headed out for a long run, and my son was probably still asleep when I decided to make brunch for one!
Remember my carb/protein ratio strategy? I shared my approach when I posted this Blackberry-Banana Smoothie recipe. Well, I absolutely love pancakes and French toast, but I usually will make an egg dish or if we go out, I’ll skip those options on the menu because with most bread-like dishes that have too many carbohydrates, I’ll be hungry a short time later if it’s not paired with some decent protein.
That is where this awesome P28 high protein bread comes into play. Each slice of this bread has 12 grams of carbohydrates and 14 grams of protein. This combination is a near perfect nutritional balance that will keep you satisfied long after leaving the table.
If you take a quick peek at P28 High Protein Foods’s website you’ll notice that they market to bodybuilders. I guess the ripped dude wheat stalk on the package might be a clue too! Fitness gurus feed their muscles with protein, but I think active folks like me or bottomless pit teenagers can benefit from this product!
Btw, this is not a sponsored post. P28 doesn’t know I exist, but they SHOULD because they’re missing a large market of people that like the convenience of good, natural, nutritious foods!
I added fruits to my sandwich with some maple syrup, but I also would recommend a Berry Sauce or the sauce from my Cinnamon Apple Pancake recipe. You also might be interested in trying my protein packed Cottage Cheese Pancake recipe!
I purchased this bread from Whole Foods in the freezer section.
- 4 slices of bread (I used high protein P28)
- 3 large eggs
- ½ cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- Assorted Fruits: blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, cherries, bananas sliced into bite size pieces.
- powder sugar (optional)
- maple syrup
Whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon in a shallow dish. Over medium-low heat, add butter to a skillet or griddle. Coat bread with egg mixture and place on heated pan. Cook for about a minute or until the bread is golden brown, then turn to cook the second side.
Place one slice of French toast on a serving plate and add desired amount of fruit (about 1/2 cup). Top with another slice of French toast.
Dust with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup.
