- 4 slices lower-carb bread
- 1 scoop Blueberry Muffin Whey Protein Powder
- 2 whole eggs
- 2 egg whites
- 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- pinch salt
- 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
- 1/4 cup sugar free maple syrup
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
Oatmeal Crumble (optional)
- 1/4 cup quick oats
- 2 tbsp. light butter
- 1/2 scoop Blueberry Muffin Whey Protein Powder
*Any bread will work, but we like to use a lower carb bread. Also, if you can plan ahead and set the bread out overnight before making, it will get a little dry and soak up the egg mixture much better and make a fluffier, more moist french toast.
- Preheat a large pan to medium/high heat.
- Whisk together protein powder, whole eggs, egg whites, almond milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt. Cut each of the 4 slices of bread on half, diagonally to make 8 triangles. Soak each in the egg mixture for about 1 minute per side.
- Spray pan with nonstick spray. Cook french toast for about 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
- For the jam, add blueberries and syrup to a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave for about 30 seconds. Mash the blueberries together with syrup. Add chia seeds and stir. Place in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to thicken.
- Finally, for the oatmeal crumble, add oats, light butter, and protein powder to a bowl. Mix. Should be a crumbly mixture. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350F for about 10 minutes.
- Top french toast with blueberry jam and oatmeal crumble. Enjoy!
