To make French toast with an Easter twist, you’ll need a six-pack of hot buns, three eggs, unsweetened almond milk, vanilla essence, cinnamon, and brown sugar.
“Let’s make a high protein Easter breakfast for the whole family,” Bec said in his TikTok video.
“I call it baking French toast. It’s 292 calories, including the toppings, and it’s so delicious.
In a bowl, she added three eggs, 150 ml of almond milk, half a teaspoon of vanilla and a pinch of ground cinnamon.
Next, cut the bundle of hot rolls in half and place the bottom halves in a baking dish.
Pour half of the egg mixture over the buns, then place the top half on top. Pour the rest of the mixture on top.
Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon on top.
Bake at 180°C for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
She served the dish with protein-rich yogurt, fresh blueberries and raspberries, cinnamon and brown sugar.
His creation, which serves six people, contains 292 calories, 47.7g of carbohydrates, 5.6g of fat and 12.3g of protein.
The video has been viewed more than 70,000 times on TikTok and Instagram, with many saying they can’t wait to treat themselves to Easter.
