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.
