Equipment

  • Small Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Skillet
  • Deep Baking Dish or Pan

Ingredients
  

  • 4 slices Whole-Grain Bread The USDA actually encourages the use of whole grains. This is because whole wheat bread is packed with dietary fiber that helps improve digestion, iron that facilitates oxygen supply in your body, and several immunity-boosting nutrients like B vitamins. If you have celiac disease or gluten intolerance, then consider choosing a gluten-free bread that is high in fiber.
  • 1 pc Egg High in protein, eggs can keep you full for longer.
  • 1 pc Banana (thinly sliced) Although commonly believed to be good for digestive health, bananas do so much more than that. Bananas have a low glycemic index. According to research, consuming low-glycemic foods can lower your risk of developing cancer and type 2 diabetes, reduce the effects of asthma, and manage blood pressure. Bananas also help control sugar levels in your body and can help improve memory due to an amino acid present in them called tryptophan.
  • 1/2 cup Almond Milk Just like almond butter, almond milk is superior to regular milk in many ways. It's low in sugar and calories, but high in calcium and vitamin E.
  • 2-3 tbsp Nut Butter The sugar-free almond butter used in this French toast recipe has its own list of benefits. First, it's sugar-free, which says enough on its own. Almond butter helps reduce glucose levels, so it's diabetes-friendly as well. It's rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, both of which work to improve your brain's functioning and reduce inflammation. It has good cholesterol that reduces the bad cholesterol in your body. So you get double the benefit and the taste.
  • Coconut Oil as needed
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract for that heavenly flavor.
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon It's rich in antioxidants and keeps all kinds of germs at bay.
  • Toppings of your choice For the time being, you can use berries as they are a rich source of antioxidants.

Instructions
 

Now that you have learned about all the ingredients, let's get to the actual recipe. Unlike most vegetarian recipes, this one is sweet and tasty.

  • Spread a small amount of almond butter on a slice of bread and cut a few slices of bananas on top of it. Make small sandwiches and put them aside.
  • Take a small bowl. Add the egg, almond milk, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla extract to it. Whisk everything together.
  • Heat a skillet and add a small amount of coconut oil to it.
  • In a deep baking dish or pan, pour the mixture. Dip each side of the sandwiches for about ten seconds. This is to ensure that the bread becomes soft and moist.
  • Now cook each side of the sandwich for about five minutes.
  • After both sides have been cooked, place the sandwiches on a plate.
  • Add your favorite toppings and it’s ready to serve.
  • Freeze any leftover sandwiches for later. When ready to serve, simply reheat them in an oven and enjoy.

Notes

This French toast recipe takes only about twenty minutes and serves four people. It's scrumptious, healthy, and quick. Your kids will love it too. What makes this recipe healthy is the high protein and low-calorie content. So you get more for less! It's also a flexible recipe that you can modify according to your personal preferences.
Make sure to use a non-stick skillet to prevent the bread from sticking to the bottom. This could create a lot of mess that takes plenty of time to clean up.
