Weekend breakfasts are a big deal at our house. After a week of boiled eggs and oatmeal for breakfast, it’s nice to let loose and spice things up a bit. One of my go-to recipes is my Pumpkin-Spiced French Toast. You know you’ve got something good when the kids are asking for a second helping. With the added protein and clean ingredients, I don’t have to feel bad for giving it to them either.

Mak and Justin slather theirs with peanut-butter and maple syrup, Cohen likes his plain, and mine are always topped with Citrus-Soaked Strawberries and a touch of maple syrup. However you dress them, they are sure to hit the spot!

Ingredients
  1. 12 slices of your favorite 100% whole grain bread
  2. 1 cup eggs (Use all whites or a combination of whites and yolks. We usually land on 2 whole eggs and 4 whites.)
  3. 3/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  4. 2 T Sucanat (or Stevia if you want less calories/carbs)
  5. 1 t Pure Vanilla Extract
  6. 1 scoop Vanilla Whey Protein (optional)
Pumpkin Pie Spice
  1. 1 t Cinnamon
  2. 1/2 t Ground Ginger
  3. 1/4 t Nutmeg, freshly grated
  4. 1/4 t Allspice
  5. Pinch of Celtic Sea Salt
  6. Coconut Oil for cooking
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients (except the bread and the coconut oil) in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Whisk until well combined and there are no little lumps of spices left.
  3. Bring a large nonstick pan to medium high heat.
  4. Drop a small amount of coconut oil into the pan so the toast doesn't stick.
  5. Dip a piece of bread in the batter for a couple seconds on each side making sure the batter is soaked through, but not so soaked that your bread falls apart.
  6. Place onto the hot pan and let it cook for a minute or so, until it is nicely browned.
  7. Flip and cook for another minute or two.
  8. Serve with 100% Pure Maple Syrup or top with Fruit....strawberries are my fave!
Notes
  1. I usually cook 3 pieces at once to save time. Use your oven on "warm" or a very low heat to keep the french toast warm as you continue cooking.
