Protein French Toast

I fell in love with French toast over the summer while on my J1 in California, so when I came home I was determined to find a macro-friendly version! I don’t think anything will beat the Nutella-stuffed French toast of ‘La Note’, a cute little French café in Berkeley, but this comes pretty close!

The recipe is super versatile, so feel free to experiment with different kinds of bread, protein powder, toppings etc.. I use chia and wholegrain bread from Aldi, but any kind of bread will do! There are so many options for toppings – maple syrup, sugar free syrup, nutella, choc shot, fruit, nut butter, chocolate chips, yoghurt, quark, bacon.. Don’t be afraid to get creative! I have some more ideas down below too.


  • 2 slices of bread
  • 100g egg whites (roughly 2 egg whites)
  • 25g protein powder
  • 50ml milk (I use almond milk)
  • Low calorie spray or oil for cooking
  • Toppings of your choice


  • Add the egg whites, protein powder, and milk to a shaker cup
  • Shake until smooth, then transfer into a wide-rim bowl
  • Heat up a non-stick frying pan on the hob and add oil/spray
  • Dip each slice of bread into the bowl containing the mixture, and coat both sides evenly
  • Add the slices to the pan, and flip over once golden brown
  • Transfer onto a plate, add toppings, and enjoy!
