Protein Pumpkin French Toast

28 Mar

This morning I was craving french toast but knew I needed a lot more protein than that to stay in my macros for the day (and a lot less carbs the rest of the day). So I decided to make protein french toast. I’ve also been wanting pumpkin so I worked that in too!

You’ll need:

  • 1/4-1/2 C pumpkin
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein
  • 1/4 C almond milk (I want to play with this amount)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Allspice and nutmeg to taste
  • 2-3 slices whole grain bread (I use Rudi’s multigrain, Ezekiel would be a great option)
  1. Whisk together the ingredients (other than the bread) and pour into shallow dish
  2. Dip bread in mixture, leave in a few seconds on each side to soak in the egg mixture
  3. Transfer onto a warm, lightly greased pan or griddle
  4. Flip the pieces while you cook until they are golden brown on both sides
