Soaked French Toast

This is one sweet treat that you may want to save for a Sunday brunch, with some friends and family. It’s important to realize you don’t have to stay away from everything indulgent as long as you modify it in a healthy way. Here I used unsweetened almond milk, omega 3 eggs (you can substitute with egg whites), agave nectar instead of maple syrup and whole wheat chia bread. With some simple modifications you can enjoy some of the foods you like once in a while.

What you’ll need:

6 slices of bread (whole wheat, chia, flax, etc)

1-2 cup of mixed berries (fresh or frozen)

Agave nectar for your syrup

1 cup of unsweetened almond milk

4 eggs (or 6 egg whites)

1 tbs of vanilla extract

A pinch of sea salt

1 tsp of cinnamon

1 tbs of coconut oil

 

Instructions:

In a large bowl whisk together milk, eggs, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon

Next in a deep pan place 6 slices of bread into it and pour over mixture on top

Soak for about half an hour until thoroughly saturated

Heat up a non stick pan and add some coconut oil before placing soaked bread onto pan

Cook for about 2-4 min on each side and transfer onto a plate

Add berries and agave nectar and you have yourself a delicious Sunday brunch!

 

Your Health Nut,
