Anabolic French Toast is a popular recipe in the bodybuilding world. Having Anabolic French Toast for breakfast, or any meal of the day, is a healthy and great way to start your day.
Youtuber and coach Greg Doucette has a popular version of anabolic French toast (protein french toast) with ingredients that are actually quite similar to a regular French toast recipe.
This recipe is super simple and packed with protein to ensure you feel full for hours afterward. Add some toppings, like fresh fruit, sugar-free syrup and berries and you are in for a treat.
How to make anabolic french toast
To start, add all of your ingredients to a wide bowl. You want to be sure to use a shallow bowl to make dipping easy.
Whisk everything together until mixed. This will leave you with a very light, almost white mixture, but that is okay.
Heat up a large pan over medium heat, then soak your bread slices in the French toast mixture.
Spray your pan with cooking spray and add your bread slices
Let the French toast cook for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown, then flip to cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes.
Top with your favorite delicious topping and enjoy.
Bread of choice. Plenty of low-carb choices. Also, traditional choices include French bread, Challah and Brioche bread.
Eggs or Egg whites
Milk: Whole milk, 2% milk, fat-free milk. Non-Dairy Milk Options: Almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk or oat milk.
Sugar free syrup: This sugar free maple syrup is hands down my favorite! It tastes so close to the real thing and doesn’t have that fake sugary taste.
Oil, butter or nonstick spray
Protein powder for extra protein
Sugar free syrup
Sugar free whipped topping
What type of bread should you use?
You can use any type of bread that is soft and can sop up the egg whites. Consider a bread with lower calories depending on your goals.
For classic French Toast, use white bread that is a little bit older, but not stale. This will allow the bread to soak up the egg batter. The most common kind of bread is white bread. However, French bread, Challah or Brioche bread are other great options.
Want to save it for later? Here’s how
Fridge: Store anabolic French Toast in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Wait to apply the syrup right until it is served to prevent it from becoming soggy.
Freezer: Place pieces of parchment paper between slices of bread in an airtight container or freezer plastic ziploc bag for up to three months.
