This quick and easy French toast recipe only takes a few ingredients, but it makes for a delicious breakfast that feels special, especially when topped with some thinly-sliced banana, cinnamon, and Greek yogurt!
A quick note: Don’t overdo the banana since you already have a carb source in the form of the bread. I like to slice an inch or two of banana very thinly so I can enjoy the flavor with my French toast without overdoing the carbs. There are some egg whites in the dipping mixture, but I recommend adding a bit more protein, either in the form of low-fat Greek yogurt or cottage cheese on top of your French toast or just by adding some collagen to your tea or coffee.
The recipe makes plenty of dipping mixture; you’ll actually have some left over. I thought about decreasing the amount but then there wouldn’t be enough volume to adequately soak the bread. If you’re multiplying this recipe to feed your family, you won’t need to multiply the dipping mixture as many times as the bread. I like to scramble up the leftover dipping mixture like scrambled eggs and eat it for extra protein; it tastes similar to the Cinnamon Roll scrambled egg recipe in this post.

- Whisk the first set of ingredients together. Soak the bread in the mixture for a few minutes, flipping it to make sure both sides get coated.
- Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium-high heat. When it is good and hot, spray it with cooking spray and fry the pieces of bread on both sides until toasted.
- Sprinkle the French toast with some additional granulated sweetener of your choice and serve with sugar-free syrup. I like to top mine with some low-fat Greek yogurt or cottage cheese (for extra protein) and some sliced banana (only an inch or two, thinly sliced, so as not to overdo the carbs).
If you multiply this recipe for your family, you won't need to multiply the soaking mixture as many times as the bread. You'll have some liquid left over from this recipe (because you need enough volume to be able to soak the bread), but you can always fry it up and eat it like scrambled eggs.
