- 2-3 slices of Ezekiel or Paleo bread, or bread of choice
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 2-4 tbs of almond milk, see how thick the mixture gets
- 2 tbs coconut flour, or flour of choice
- 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder
- ½ tsp of pure vanilla extract
- a grind or two of Himalayan sea salt, or just salt
- a dash of cinnamon
- Serve with fresh raspberries and banana slices (or fruit of choice)
- Drizzle with raw honey or syrup
- Optional Toppings- yogurt or your favorite nut butter
- In a med bowl mix the dry ingredients; protein powder, salt, cinnamon, and coconut flour.
- Next add in the 2 eggs, the almond milk (see how much you need, start with 2 tbs), and vanilla extract. Whisk well until most clumps are gone. (You will have a few).
- Place this mixture in a shallow bowl. Add one slice at a time. Let the bread soak up all the mixture. You can prick your fork a few times to let is soak in more. Flip and repeat.
- Heat a pan over med heat. I use coconut oil, (or oil of choice) and when warmed; add the slice. Let cook for about 1-2 mins each side. NOTE: because of the protein powder it can burn easier than you would think - so watch it.
- Now repeat the process. Add the next slice of bread in the egg mixture. Coat both sides. Add more oil to the pan if needed and cook 1-2 mins each side. Remember to double this if you are making more than on serving.
- Place on a plate. Add your fruit of choice. I use fresh raspberries and sliced bananas. Sprinkle with a dust of cinnamon and a drizzle maple syrup or honey over. Can also use a BIG dollop of your favorite yogurt or nut butter. ENJOY!
You can use all egg whites but I use 2 eggs – good flavor, texture, and where all the nutrients are.
Can use any protein powder you want. I use vanilla flavor but chocolate could work.
I LOVE Himalayan sea salt (brings out the flavor BIG time) but if you do not have this you can absolutely use salt.
Use any fruit you like. You could even add say blueberries to the egg mixture too so they warm up in the pan.
Another topping idea is that you can could even add a big dollop of yogurt or your favorite nut butter too.
