Introduction: How to Make High Protein French Toast Tortillas
In this instructable I will show you how to make high protein French Toast Tortillas. If you work out regularly you know how important proteins are for recovery. These high protein French toast tortillas are great even if you don't workout; You can eat them at breakfast, or as pre or post workout meal. They are healthy and delicious.
The high protein French toast tortilla is a cross between French toast and crepe. It's main ingredients are flour tortillas, eggs, additional egg whites, milk, protein powder, (homemade) Nutella and banana. I recommend using homemade flour tortillas (see my previous instructable) for this recipe because they are so much tastier but you can use store bought as well.
If you have sweet memories of cinnamon do not hesitate to use it as well. As it is high protein I include protein powder as one of the ingredients. Because the French toast tortilla has banana filling I choose banana flavour protein. You can sprinkle with powdered Sugar if you like it more sweet.
A full instruction and printable recipe can be found on The Tortilla Channel.
