Chocolate and Protein French Toast with Fresh Blueberry Topping
Posted Oct 12 2012 8:36am
OH YEA. BEST WAY TO START A FRIDAY. Chocolate French Toast. For Real.
3 Slices of White Toast
1 Tablespoon Buttermilk, or Skim Milk
1/8 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Full Tablespoon of Chocolate Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder
1. In a flat bowl, mix the eggs, buttermilk, cinnamon, protein powder and cocoa powder. Soak a slice of toast in the mix, on both sides.
2. Heat up a skillet to medium heat and spray it with cooking spray. Cook each side of the toast for about 1-2 minutes.
It was really good. I think I could have upped the cocoa powder a bit but with the blueberry topping, perfecto. I just heated up some frozen blueberries and sprinkled some confectioners sugar on top. There really isn’t any sugar in this dish at all, besides the natural sugar in the blueberries. It’s a great, high protein french toast.
I feel like French toast gets a bad rap because the majority of the time people smother it in syrup. But in reality, if you can do without the sugary syrup, it is equivalent to having eggs and toast with some blueberries. Who can argue with a breakfast like that?!
I tried to be SUPER COOL and make these into CHOCOLATE DRACULA FRENCH TOAST…but it looked more like an angel….
EPIC FAIL. Can you at least squint your eyes and shake your head side to side really quickly and maybe see the outline of a Dracula?
Anyways….I’m really excited about what I have planned to bake up tonight. I’m going to take tonight to relax a bit…and make a DELICIOUS PUMPKINY dessert. I’m not telling what it is yet though…for fear that it might turn out like dracula…the complete opposite of what I’m going for…an angel.
What’s your favorite way to make French Toast? Does it include and unexpected ingredients?
The by far unexpected ingredient of this one is the protein powder…and the cocoa powder. I am convinced that you can add a little protein to just about anything.
