It’s been an interesting week at eating bender. I’ve been doing some reflecting, some experimenting and some planning and have really had a lot of fun figuring out the future of this blog. Expect a post explaining the final decision very soon!
For now, I’d like to introduce the new Sunday segment – Sunday Brunch. Each week, I will feature a new breakfast recipe that I have followed from a book or created from scratch. My hope is that these creations will be easy to follow and replicate for your own enjoyment!
French Toast the Bender Whey
Ingredients (serves 1):
- 1 scoop whey vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 cup liquid egg whites
- 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- Cinnamon to taste
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1 tsp. maple syrup
Combine toast batter ingredients in a small bowl, adding cinnamon to taste. Set aside.
Combine topping ingredients in a separate bowl. Microwave 30 seconds and continue whipping ingredients until the mashed banana takes on a whipped texture.
Drench two pieces of whole wheat toast in the batter.
Coat a small pan in cooking spray and place on burner at medium high heat. Add soaked piece of bread to the pan and dash with more cinnamon.
Flip toast when one side is slightly browned and egg appears thoroughly cooked. Toast the other side until it’s golden brown. It’s now ready to be served!
Top the French toast with banana–maple icing if desired.
The end result is pure decadence that combines fiber, carbohydrates and protein to provide a lasting fullness for a day of activity!
