If you work out regularly or lift weights you know how important protein are for muscle development and recovery. These high protein French toast tortillas ticks all the right boxes. They contains a lot of protein sources, so great fuel for a pre or post workout meal.
I’m working out and lifting weights for quite a number of years now but only recently understand how important it is to fuel muscle with protein. Fortunately lifting is not mandatory for this recipe. If you like French toast, fruit and banana then this recipe will fit you just as well. It is easy to make so lets get started!
These high protein French toast tortilla are a cross between French toast and crepe. It is so much fun to take a classic and turn it into something new and delicious maybe even a classic. In some way it takes me back to my youth when my mom would make French toast (we call them wentelteefjes). That way we had a nutritious meal with a limit number of ingredients and also very cheap. With stale bread, a couple of eggs and milk we could have a lunch for three easily.
If you like French toast or pancakes with fruit this is the recipe for you. I recommend using homemade flour tortillas for this recipe because they are so much tastier but you can use store bought as well. Further you need:
- additional egg whites
- protein powder
- (homemade) Nutella
If you have sweet memories of cinnamon do not hesitate to use it here as well.
As it is high protein I include protein powder as one of the ingredients. Because the French toast tortilla has banana filling I choose banana flavour protein. You can sprinkle with powdered sugar but this is a high protein French toast tortilla so I use whey protein powder for this.
You can customise these high protein French toast tortillas to your liking. Some suggestions to use instead of (homemade) Nutella:
- Strawberry jam
- Blackberry jam
- Blue berry jam
- Peanutbutter and Jelly
- Maple or Apple syrup
Not a lover of banana? No worries the options are endless:
Now tell me don’t these look really delicious?
