5 minutes


15 minutes


20 minutes


2 portions


  • 1 egg
  • 180 mL (¾ cup) liquid egg whites (or the whites of 6 large eggs)
  • 5 mL (1 teaspoon) vanilla extract
  • 7.5 mL (½ tablespoon) maple syrup
  • 125 mL (½ cup) unsweetened vanilla almond drink


  • 4 slices of Bon Matin Michelin Protein Bread *

For the strawberry puree:

  • 375 mL (1 ½ cups) whole strawberries, fresh or frozen *
  • 30 mL (2 tablespoons) hulled hemp seeds



You can use a different bread, but the nutritional values will change slightly. For reference, each slice of the suggested bread contains 105 calories, 7 g of protein and 1.5 g of fibre.

Other berries of choice (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, etc.) can be substituted for the strawberries.


  1. In a soup plate, whisk together egg, egg whites, vanilla extract and maple syrup.
  2. Dip bread slices in the mixture, letting them soak in. Place the slices on a plate while waiting to cook them.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, cook the strawberries until they’ve broken down and thickened. Mash them with a fork, about 10 minutes (see note).
  4. Meanwhile, spray a large non-stick skillet with oil over medium heat. Cook soaked bread slices 2 minutes on each side, turning with a spatula.
  5. Stir hemp seeds into strawberry mixture. Mix well.
  6. Serve French toast with strawberry puree on top.


To speed up the process, you can also heat the strawberries in the microwave for 2 to 5 minutes, until they mash well with a fork. Mash the strawberries until pureed.
