Protein Packed Breakfast Toast

Breakfast Week Continues!

Today I’m sharing how to make “Protein Packed Breakfast Toast”. This recipe is a twist on traditional toast and is really delicious! Each “Protein Packed Breakfast Toast” provides 10-15 grams of protein! How?

The exact grams of protein each toast recipe provides really depends on the toppings used and the amount added. I used Food for Life bread, which contains 4 grams of protein per slice. Some whole-wheat or even gluten-free breads can provide up to 10 grams of protein per slice! Then 1-2 tablespoons of nut butter provides 4-7 grams of protein. One medium banana even provides 1.5 grams of protein, every bit counts! Lastly, by sprinkling this toast with seeds such as chia seeds and hemp seeds this adds an additional 1-3 grams of protein per teaspoon. One tablespoon of chia seeds provides 2 grams of protein and one tablespoon of hemp seeds provides 3.3 grams of protein. A gram or two of protein may not sound like much, but it all adds up and before you know it, your plant-based meal has 10-15 grams of protein! If you enjoy two slices of “Protein Packed Breakfast Toast”, that’s 20-30 grams of protein in one meal! 

Plant-based protein sources are great because while they do provide protein, they also contribute vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and fiber!
