Protein French Toast with Caramelized Bananas, Cinnamon & Ginger

Protein French Toast with Caramelized Bananas, Cinnamon & Ginger

When I was a little kid, my mom would often make me french toast for breakfast. She has a huge sweet tooth and would whip up my french toast with cinnamon, vanilla, and icing sugar. 

She would bring it to me swirled with maple syrup, and even more icing sugar sprinkled on top. It was a sticky sweet delicious treat.

When I was a teenager, my boyfriend at the time had a large family that loved making big breakfasts on the weekend. His dad was often in charge of this meal and would make french toast in order to stretch out the eggs so everyone could get a hearty meal.

To my great surprise, he would fry pieces of bread soaked in eggs, milk, salt and pepper in bacon grease! The preferred topping for this savory version was Cheese Whiz. It was the polar opposite to my mother’s sweet version.

I tend to enjoy more savory foods than sweet, however, as an adult now, I make my french toast on the sweeter side, but not so sugary as my mother’s.

French toast is not typically a well balanced meal. It is mostly carbs with a bit of protein from the eggs. I prefer to try and eat my meals with balanced macronutrients in order to feel full and satisfied for longer. 

My version is similar to traditional french toast except I add in protein powder and top it with a cream cheese protein glaze and caramelized bananas. 

Try it! It’s delicious!
