A tasty CARB-RICH breakfast from The Body Coach, aka Joe Wicks…


Serves 1

What you need:

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 and some maple syrup, to serve


What you need to do:

  • 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.
  • 2Dip 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.
  • 3Melt 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 mins on each side, keeping an eye out to ensure it doesn’t burn. Y
  • our French toast should be gloriously golden and spongy to the touch when finished. When you are happy that it is cooked, place it on to 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.
