Pumpkin cranberry whole grain french toast...the taste of fall!

Pumpkin cranberry whole grain french toast...
On weekends I like to make Lou a nice breakfast, this morning I tried a twist on his normal french toast.
He loved it..
Recipe is for one...just double it for more..
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1/4 cup of pumpkin puree ( not pumpkin pie mix)
splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
pinch of salt
pinch of pumpkin pie spice mix
pinch of cinnamon
teaspoon of unsalted raw pumpkin seeds
a few cranberries for topping 
1 teaspoon of coconut oil
2-3 pieces of Whole grain cranberry bread (usually this time of year your grocery stores bakery will have this available...if not look in the package bread area...just watch for trans fat..

In a small bowl whip the egg and egg white together
Add the pumpkin puree and almond milk..... stir together
Add the salt, pumpkin pie mix and cinnamon...stir
Coat your bread well with mixture by soaking each piece ...allowing it to absorb some of the mixture.
In a pan melt coconut oil
Place your coated bread into the pan and cook ...careful not to burn...:))
When done....stack each piece putting just a dab of butter ( I use a product called MELT made with coconut oil)
sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and cranberries 
I used 1 tablespoon of real maple syrup over the top.
Lou thought these were a great alternative to regular french toast...I think I'll try something with pancakes next..

Hope you all have a wonderful day...Leave a comment for me so I know you are enjoying these healthy "real" food recipes.
Be well!


  1. Yum! I'll see if I can find some cranberry bread this week. I love the recipes you've been posting and have tried several of them and passed a few on to some friends.
    Thank you for posting the recipes, Tammy; it has helped me get out of my food rut (I have 4 hungry teenagers, and most days my focus is quickly preparing huge quantities of food for them and not thinking about what I'm eating.)

  6. ...just commented on your YT channel... Thank goodness, a real person doing real recipes and telling everyone where to get the ingredients. Thank you! I used to be very fit (in my 20's and 30's) and ate well. Now I'm starting all over. My heartrate is high and my blood pressure is low (not enough exercise) and I've gotten into bad eating habits. But... I'm ready to be healthier and feel better :) It's hard to go from eating what I eat now to eating healthier. I'm about to "invest" in a VitaMix, I'm so excited! I used to do smoothies (1990's) but now nutrition 'rules' have changed and it's a whole different game. Thank you for all the info. and encouragement. You have no doubt changed someone's life, if not many lives. Be Blessed :)
