Gourmet french toast

Gourmet french toast


For the bun:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 2 slices whole wheat bread, preferably cinnamon raisin (I used Ezekiel brand cinnamon raisin)
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1 tsp of coconut oil or coconut oil spray

For the fixin’s:

  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • ½ Tbsp chocolate hazelnut spread
  • ½ banana, sliced into delicious, potassium-filled medallions


Combine egg whites, almond milk, orange juice, vanilla extract, & salt in a large bowl and whisk together. Dip bread slices into mixture. Add coconut oil to a pan and put on medium heat. Place dipped bread onto the pan and add ½ cinnamon to each bread side. Flip bread and add ½ cinnamon to the other bread side. Cook toast until firm and remove from pan. Add peanut butter & banana in between the slices and enjoy!
