protein waffle casserole
One serving of traditional French toast casserole can be as much as 380 calories, 17 grams of total fat and 11 grams of protein. This healthier version offers 179 calories, 6 grams of total fat and 12.5 grams of protein per serving. One serving is ~1.5 cups of casserole and this recipe makes about 6 servings.
The vanilla almond extract and cinnamon add natural sweetness without the extra calories or sugar, while pecans offer heart-healthy fat.
In addition, Ezekiel bread is a sprouted grain that is higher in protein and fiber, meaning it keeps us full for longer and supports good digestion, keeping you regular.
