If you work out regularly or lift weights you know how important protein are for muscle development and recovery.
These high protein French toast with tortilla fit in perfectly. They contain 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 is perfect for you just as well.
These high protein French toast tortilla are a cross between French toast and crepe pancake. It is so much fun to take a classic and turn it into something new and delicious maybe even a future 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.

How to make French toast
For the best French toast recipe made with tortillas start with the eggs. Whisk up the eggs, egg whites and the milk together into a creamy batter.
Add banana flavoured whey powder to the batter, whisk through and set the batter aside. Put the banana in a bowl and mash so it turns into banana puree. Set the banana puree aside as well.
Immerse a tortilla into the egg batter and coat both sides of the tortilla. Let the tortilla soak up the batter.
Pre heat a skillet and cook the tortilla in a medium to hot pan. If you use a non stick pan you do not need a baking product.
Put a couple of tablespoons of the banana puree on the baked tortilla and fold it. Sprinkle some chocolate whey powder (or icing sugar) on top. Some blue berries to decorate and serve immediately.
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.

- Strawberry jam
- Blackberry jam
