    The total for each slice (8 servings per recipe) was 112 calories, 10 grams protein, 16 grams carbs, and 1 gram of fat. If you use an 8X8 dish, you would get 9 servings. I used a round 1.5 quart casserole dish.

    What is protein French toast?

    Classic French toast will typically have 165 calories, and 5 grams of protein per slice. It would be even higher in calories and lower in protein per serving with my recipe without the ingredient changes.

    The calories generally are higher in classic French toast because cooks will use a regular slice of bread, whole eggs, and zero protein powder.

    There’s no question that a delicious french toast casserole makes a filling breakfast! But you know what makes it even more filling? More protein!

    Ingredient swaps for my Protein French Toast

    • I was able to increase the protein in this French toast casserole by adding egg whites and protein powder. I used some vanilla protein powder, and it mixed in perfectly with my French toast ingredients.
    • To make the overall dish low in calories, I decided to use low calorie bread. While I have a whole post on a variety of low calorie breads from the store, for this I used the Sara Lee 45 calorie bread. I used 12 slices, which worked well for this 1.5 quart casserole dish. But of course, the fewer slices of bread you use, the fewer calories each serving will have.

    • In addition to the low calorie bread, I kept the calories low by using some Monk fruit sweetener. I like the Lakanto powdered sugar. Although it has zero calories, according to the label, it is somewhat misleading because it does contain carbs. The fact that they are undigestible carbs allows the product to report zero calories.
