Nutrition Facts (per serving)



  • 1 egg
  • 180 ml (¾ cup) liquid egg whites (or the whites of 6 large eggs)
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) vanilla extract
  • 7.5 ml (½ tbsp) maple syrup
  • 125 ml (½ cup) unsweetened vanilla almond drink
  • 4 slices of Bon Matin Michelin Protein Bread (see note)

For the strawberry puree:

  • 375 ml (1 ½ cups) whole strawberries, fresh or frozen (or other berries : raspberries, blackberries, blueberries).
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) hulled hemp seeds

Note: 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.


  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. 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.
  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.


Can be kept for 5 days in the refrigerator. French toast alone can be frozen for 3 months. Strawberry puree does not freeze.
