Before we get into the recipes, custard yogurt toast is basically bread, egg, Greek yogurt and maple syrup, or sugar. These recipes are modified from the original recipe that went viral on Tiktok.

To make it more calorie friendly, we are going to leave out the maple syrup or sugar. But feel free to mix and match the ingredients to suit your taste and macros.

Ingredients

Custard Yogurt Toast Ingredients

Here are the ingredients needed:

  • 2 slices bread
  • Low fat Greek yogurt – 2 Tablespoons
  • 1 egg
  • Protein powder – *Vanilla flavour
  • Raspberries – ¼ cup, or around 10 – 12 raspberries

You can use any bread. For a healthy choice, use a wholegrain or wholemeal type bread.

Switch the raspberries for any berry type, or mixed berries.

If you want less calories, just use a ½ scoop of protein powder.

For the protein powder you can use any brand or flavour. Ideally try and match the macros and calories though.

*While vanilla flavoured protein powder goes well with most condiments, ingredients and spices, for something different try strawberry protein powder, or chocolate flavoured.

 

How To Make High Protein Custard Yogurt Toast

  1. Preheat the oven for 180° C (356° F)
  2. Use the back of a spoon, or your fingers to create a depression or well in the bread. (Be careful you don’t cut a hole through the bread.)
  3. Place the Greek yogurt, egg and protein powder in a small bowl and mix until a smooth consistency. (Ensure there are no lumps or powder present.)
  4. Place the bread on a baking tray.
  5. Pour half the mixture into one slice of bread. Then the other into the other slice.
  6. Cook in the oven for around 11 to 15 minutes. This will depend on the oven and it might need more or less cooking time.
  7. Once cooked, place the raspberries on top and serve.

Alternatively to cook it, use a grill or air fryer. If you use an air fryer, cook it for around 4-5 minutes.

I use the tablespoon that is going to scoop the yogurt to make the depression in the bread.
