"Yes, yes, yes. Finally a recipe for French toast that I can enjoy after a workout. I’ve topped mine with banana and blueberries but you can use any fruit you love. Don’t go mad with the maple syrup!"

Serves 1
Cooks in 15 minutes
Difficulty Easy


1 egg

¼ tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 thick slice of white bread, crusts removed

½ tbsp coconut oil

1 banana, sliced, to serve small handful of blueberries, to serve maple syrup, to serve


Separate the yolk and the white of the egg. Add the cinnamon and vanilla extract to the yolk and whisk together until totally combined.

Whisk the egg white in a separate bowl until it becomes light and frothy. Tip the frothy white into the yolk mixture and, with a light hand, fold in – don’t become too obsessed with completely incorporating them into each other.

Dip the bread into the mixture, turning it a couple of times for even coverage. Let the bread sit in the mixture for a minute or so, to absorb as much of the tastiness as possible.

Melt the coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium to high heat and then carefully lay the soaked slice of bread in the pan. Fry the bread for about 2 minutes on each side, keeping an eye out to ensure it doesn’t burn.

Your French toast should be gloriously golden and spongy to the touch when finished. When you are happy that it is cooked, place it onto a clean piece of kitchen roll to remove any excess fat.

Serve up topped with banana slices, blueberries and a final drizzle of maple syrup.
