Protein Packed French Toast?

After an incredible weekend of stuffing my face with probably not so healthy foods…I started my Monday off (hopefully) the right way. I attempted chocolate protein pancakes this morning. It’s a pretty simple, yummy looking recipe that I found on Peanut Butter Fingers…unfortunately, I was missing a key ingredient: cottage cheese.

So, me, being the creative chef that I am, substituted milk for cottage cheese. As my perceptive husband pointed out, milk and cottage cheese don’t exactly have the same textures.

But I blended the milk, protein powder, and egg whites anyway. Well, more like whisked.

Since things weren’t lookin’ too appetizing at this point…I decided to try french toast instead of pancakes. So, I used 2 pieces of wheat bread, dipped them into the protein/milk/egg mixture, and threw them onto the frying pan.

They looked like relatively normal pieces of french toast. After they were through cooking, I added some cinnamon, peanut butter, and a little sugar free maple syrup.

They actually tasted pretty good! Probably because I’ll eat anything with peanut butter on it…but I would definitely make these again. I’d also love to try the original pancake recipe soon…just need some cottage cheese!
