Grilled French Toast

Serves: 2

Happy Monday! I hope you had an amazing weekend filled with friends, family and lots of fun! As I mentioned Friday I was up in Boston for the weekend at The Healthy Living Summit with an amazing group of bloggers! We had such a blast talking, learning and of course doing a lot of working out and eating! I will be posting all the details of this amazing weekend on Wednesday for my WIAW post, so be sure to check it out! Also, Tuesday I will be posting my first ever Recipe Redux post! I am soooo excited to be participating in this new monthly group! I can assure you that Tuesday there will be one amazing recipe posted!! I can’t wait for you all to try it out! So now that I have given you a quick glimpse into some of the amazing things to come this week, let take a look at today’s delicious recipe! 🙂

Fit Ingredients

  • 3 large egg whites
  • 2 tbs coconut milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbs (15g) vanilla protein powder, optional
  • 2 tsp stevia
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (add more or less depending on your preference)
  • 4 slices ezekiel bread (or bread of choice)

****************************************************************************

  • Non stick cooking spray
  • Grill or grill pan, optional but highly recommended

****************************************************************************

Directions

In a bowl whisk together your egg whites, coconut milk and vanilla extract. Add in your protein powder, stevia and cinnamon. Mix well. Spray your grill pan with non stick spray (or warm up on your grill on low) and turn to medium heat. While the pan is warming, dip each of your slices of bread into the egg mixture. Coat one side then flip and coat the other. Allow excess egg to drip off and then place the bread on the pan/grill. Grill for 3-4 minutes or until desired darkness and then flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes. Repeat until all bread slices have been cooked.
Serve hot. Top with fresh fruit, pure maple syrup, greek yogurt, nut butters, ricotta cheese, nuts/seeds or jam. Whatever your pleasure! I ate mine with a few blueberries and some sweetened ricotta cheese! Shocker, I know 😉

This french toast had the perfect amount of cinnamon and vanilla flavor! I ate it after my long run (17 miles) along with some ricotta and egg whites and it kept me full for a long time!! I was barely hungry when my next meal rolled around! With the added protein in the french toast recipe and the 6g of fiber, it is sure to keep you satisfied for hours too!
