Man oh man is this French toast delicious! If you are trying to still eat the things you love but increase your protein intake making small changes - this is the recipe for you. This simple 5-ingredient French toast is elevated by adding some quickly caramelized bananas and a whipped cottage cheese spread. In the past I've used ricotta cheese, but substituting it for cottage cheese ups the protein intake without compromising any of the flavor.

I used gluten-free bread for this recipe, but you can use any loaf of sliced bread for this recipe.
