I’ve been playing around with making Fitness Food this week that is allergy-friendly. So I’m going to apologize in advance for the awesomeness of this recipe to the people who are not near their kitchen and can’t make it yet. I’m sorry!
Seriously, I just woke up craving chocolate and peanut butter. It happens. Instead of straight eating the peanut butter out of the jar with a side of dark chocolate chips out of the bag I made this Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein French Toast.
Food allergy friendly to vegan, gluten-free, paleo (depending on the bread) and chocoholics, and suitable for anyone who cares about their protein intake. You can use any gluten-free bread you like (mine is a recipe of Ninja Nut Bread that’s paleo-friendly and is in the Body Fuel System recipes, week 4 if you haven’t gotten it yet – download it now) but here is the recipe for the French Toast batter and Peanut Butter Topping.
Yield: 2 servings
You will need: blender, shallow baking dish, measuring cups and spoons, skillet, spatula
1 packet/1 scoop chocolate protein powder
2 tsp cacao powder
3/4 cup almond milk
2 T ground flaxseed
1/4 tsp vanilla
2 T water (optional – see how your batter is first)
4 slices GF or Sprouted Grain Bread
1. Mix all ingredients in your blender (except water) and blend until evenly mixed.
2. Add extra water to thin if it appears too thick to absorb into the bread. I’ve made this a few times and it varies. It’s baking…stay open 🙂
3. Soak the bread on both sides, and cook on a heated skillet until done.
4. Serve with: Peanut Butter Topping
Peanut Butter Topping
2 T peanut butter
1 tsp coconut oil
Melt in the microwave for 45 seconds and stir together. Make more as needed. Garnish with cacao powder.
