HEALTY FRENCH TOAST RECIPE

Saturday, October 20, 2012

If I had to pick one meal a day as my favorite, breakfast would win hands down. I could eat breakfast food for lunch and dinner as well, but in order to eat a well balanced diet I force myself not to. It's the one meal when you can splurge and eat and you still have the whole day to burn away the calories. French toast is such a yummy classic breakfast treat, but over the last few years it got a bad rep health-wise. Here is a version that I make on the weekends! Instead of using white/Italian bread I use oat bread for my recipe.  One thing to note that since it's a harder bread you have to let it soak for a while!



Ingredients:
2 Eggs 
2/3 Cup of Organic Milk (I use whole milk, but you can reduce calories by using low or non fat)
2 Teaspoon of Vanilla extract (I like the strong vanilla flavor so I use a lot!)
1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1/3 Teaspoon Cinnamon (you can use less or more based on how strong you want the cinnamon flavor!) Your Favorite Brand of healthy bread (oat, wholegrain, multigrain.. whichever!)






















Mix everything together well. Diagonally cut bread in half, let it soak for a good 10-15 min. I cook mine on an electric griddle that has a non stick surface. Make sure you don't use metal spatula's to flip them since they can damage the non-stick surface which can release harmful chemicals into your food!  If I have extra batter left I will dip the already cooked slices again and cook again!  I love to eat mine plain with just some fruit, but you can add whatever syrup you desire!

  1. Yummy. I so agree with you that breakfast is the best meal of the day!! I could eat it for dinner a few nights a week but unfortunately my husband doesn't agree :(
