It’s peach season! You all know how much I love peaches! Peaches are one of my favorite things about summer. Here in Utah we have an abundance of orchards, so summer farm stands are full of fresh peaches. Nothing makes a great dessert like fresh peaches and I decided to take my love of peaches to the breakfast table.

The result is this yummy peach protein French toast. The peaches make it delicious and the added protein powder and egg whites make it a nutritious breakfast choice. I’m always looking for ways to add protein to my breakfasts because it keeps me going on busy mornings.

Throwing a scoop of protein powder into a batter is an easy way to add protein, which is what I do with this recipe. (for a review of protein powders see this post) Using Sara Lee brand 45 calorie bread along with Almond Milk will keep your calories and carbs low.

How to make protein French toast

Add egg whites and protein powder to your french toast batter.

  • Liquid egg whites will keep your calories low (versus whole eggs) and still add lots of protein.
  • Vanilla protein powder gives this recipe even more protein and the vanilla flavor blends nicely with the fresh peaches.
  • Peaches (because it’s PEACHES & CREAM French Toast) and again, I LOVE peaches. Fresh is best but if it is off-season try using thawed frozen peaches or canned with no sugar added.
  • Almond milk is a great substitute for dairy milk. Unsweetened almond milk has only 40 calories per serving and no sugars. I use it almost exclusively in batters, smoothies, and baking.
  • Sara Lee 45 calorie bread is a great grocery store find for me. I can cut calories and carbs in half and still enjoy bread, which I love. I use it for sandwiches, toast, and of course this recipe.
  • Optional toppings of a squirt of whip cream and some sliced peaches instead of butter and sugary syrup not only look pretty, but add a fresh and creamy taste to your protein french toast.

Why eat protein for breakfast?

When I was growing up, breakfast meant cereal with toast. All carbs and no protein was a typical way to eat. As a young adult, I moved into eating smoothies for breakfast but they were still mainly fruit with some spinach thrown in.

Now I understand the importance of protein to start out my day and I really strive to add it in where ever I can. Eggs, of course, are a great source of protein; but I also add protein powder to smoothies, batters, oatmeal, etc to get more protein in. Why is protein so important at breakfast? Here are a few benefits to a high protein breakfast like this protein French toast:

  • Hunger: protein takes longer to digest so it keeps you full for longer.
  • Weight loss: studies show that eating 12grams of protein or more at breakfast aids weight loss.
  • Blood sugar levels: protein slows the body’s absorption of carbohydrates which helps keep your blood sugars even.
  • Muscle mass: adding protein to your diet helps increase muscle mass and if your workout occurs in the morning it is important to fuel it with protein.
  • Performance boost: eating before a long workout (60 minutes plus) energizes your muscles and preserves the protein your body has stored for recovery.
