Nothing says treat yo' self quite like French toast. The eggy, bready dish is kind of fancy, but still totally easy to make. It's sweet, but not too sweet. To be honest, the only reason we aren't eating French toast every damn day is because a lot of recipes tend to overdo it in the added sugar and refined carbs departments. Sure, an enormous stack of syrup-drenched bread is totally fine once in a while, but not exactly the most nutritious option for everyday eating.
But French toast absolutely has the potential to be a healthy breakfast. These 11 recipes prove that. All of them use fiber- and protein- packed ingredients like whole-grain bread, nut milks, eggs, and fruit to turn this favorite into an energizing day starter. Bonus: All are under 400 calories.
