Get some extra protein in at breakfast with this delicious and easy French toast.
There are a few tricks to adding protein to french toast:
Bread: choose a higher protein bread. I used Ezekiel bread which is sprouted and great for those with gluten sensitivities. It also has a higher protein content than regular sliced bread or sourdough.
Milk: soy milk has 8g of protein per cup. So using soy milk instead of almond milk can add a few grams of protein to the dish.
Protein Powder: adding protein powder to the milk mixture significantly boosts the protein content. It also thickens the mixture like an egg would, so it's a great way to achieve the texture of regular French toast. Plus, a vanilla protein powder creates a nice flavor for the toast.

Ingredient Notes & Substitutions
Soy Milk: I recommend using soy milk because it is slightly higher in protein than other non-dairy milks. But since the majority of the protein in this recipe comes from the protein powder, any non-dairy milk will work and the dish will still be high protein
Make it savory: use an unsweetened/unflavored protein powder and skip the maple syrup. Serve with tofu scramble & avocado. Season with salt & pepper.
Add sweetness. If you're using an unsweetened protein powder or just want a bit more sweetness than the recipe calls for, add a few extra teaspoons of maple or date syrup
Choose the protein-rich options. Soy milk and Ezekiel bread are both great options for your French toast, since they'll be giving you extra protein. Choose those options over regular non-dairy milk and white bread.
