Everyone loves a smoothie now and then right? Great snack or breakfast on the go – thanks to Shannon from Skinny Sometimes for another great recipe!
I have mentioned many times that I am not a cook.
I actually ate virtually the SAME breakfast (oatmeal and egg whites) everyday for over 7 years.
Then… all of the sudden…. I just couldn’t do it anymore.
So lately, I’ve been looking for other ways to have a protein and slow-digesting-carb breakfast that I enjoy.
Protein Pancakes are great, but honestly, I really suck at pancakes (burned, crumbled, flat, you name it!!)
I was sent a few loaves of Food for Life’s Ezekiel 4:9® Sprouted Flax Bread and I wasn’t really sure what I could do with it, I mean, besides making toast.
Toast is just so dry and I don’t have any butter, so that was no fun… but wait!!
What about FRENCH TOAST?!?!?!
Ding Ding Ding!!
OK this could either be AMAZING or it could be a disaster….
Luckily, it was pretty damn good if I do say so myself!!
So, if you’ve ever tried Ezekiel Bread before, you will know it can be a little dry. It tastes much better toasted, because its dense. Well, I was worried that the french toast would be the same.
So, instead of real eggs, I used Egg Whites International liquid egg whites.
I have been using Egg Whites International since 2005 when I first saw their booth at the Olympia. They ARE real egg whites, but they have been filtered so there is no slimy texture, this made it so the egg whites just SOAKED into the bread, instead of just coating the outside like normal egg whites… THIS, it turns out, was the key!!
Here is all you need:
2 slices of Ezekiel 4:9® Sprouted Flax Bread
1/2c. Egg Whites International (or store bought) liquid egg whites
1 tbsp. coconut oil (for the pan)
Honey, real maple syrup, berries, etc. for topping (I used honey)
Cut the Ezekiel bread in thirds to make French Toast “sticks”
Poured about 1/2 c. of egg whites into a bowl
Dip the bread into the bowl but make sure the egg whites saturate the sticks (not to the point of being soggy, but fully saturated)
Heat a tbsp. of olive oil in a pan and place pieces of bread in the pan (on med-high) for about 2 minutes.
When the back side is browned, flip over and cook the other side..
VOILA!! CLEAN & LEAN French Toast
I dipped mine in honey and it was amazing! Because of the egg whites the toast was actually much less dense and tasted more like real bread. I really enjoyed it!
