Healthy Protein Cinnamon Raisin French Toast

  • This recipe can make 2-3 slices. If you are feeding many –  just double everything.
  • 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 use freshly ground nutmeg, so amazing if you have this. Otherwise in the jar is just fine.
  • 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.
  • You can could even add a big dollop of Greek yogurt or your favorite nut butter too.
Servings:  1-2

  • 2-3 slices of Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel Bread, recommended to keep this “light”
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, or use milk of choice
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten - or can use all egg whites
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs of coconut sugar or a packet of Stevia, or sweetener of choice to taste
  • 1 tbs of flaxseed, great nutty flavor or can use chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 grinds of Himalayan sea salt or about 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein, can use any brand you like
For Topping: 
  • Any fresh and organic fruit you like; I like fresh berries, a sliced apple or banana.
  • You can use maple syrup, or agave, or raw honey as well.
  • Also a BIG dollop of your favorite yogurt or nut butter would be excellent! Then I add just a dust of cinnamon as the very last step. 


  • In a med bowl mix the dry ingredients; protein powder, nutmeg, salt, flaxseed (or chia seeds), and coconut sugar (or sugar).
  • Next add in the 2 eggs, the almond milk (might need more), 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 it 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. Sprinkle with a dust of cinnamon and drizzle maple syrup, agave, or honey over.
