That title is one heck of a mouthful, isn’t it? I assure you this French toast is truly delicious. My other cinna-coconutty French toast was good, but this one is even better. It really taste similar to those from A Taste of Thyme. Speaking of there I miss that place.
I couldn’t resist making French toast out of this bread. It does have a slight sweet [and nutty] after taste which made it perfect for this sweet dish. Now this is a bit different from traditional French toast because I “stuffed” it with almond butter.
You can stuff it with anything; fruit, cream cheese, jams, other nuts butters, etc. My favorite combo was using the vanilla almond butter and [slightly heated] raspberries. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. Hey. Isn’t tomorrow Sunday? Brunch is on me, figuratively anyway. Oh and remember, this is a treat breakfast for those special weekends, enjoy!Ingredients:
3 Slices of Bread, Edges Cut (I used the Rice Pecan Bread)
1 Tbsp of Almond Butter
1 tsp of Maple Syrup (or Maple Extract)
1 Egg White
1/4 Cup of Milk (I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk)
1/2 tsp of Cinnamon
Fresh Raspberries or Other Fruit (Optional)
Drizzle of Maple Syrup (Optional)
Take one slice of bread and spread almond butter. Fold in half (or get fancy and cut into triangles) and repeat to remaining two slices. Set aside.
In a [medium sized] shallow bowl, whisk the egg white, milk, maple syrup and cinnamon until well blended. Dip all almond butter “sandwiches” into bowl and let them soak up the egg white mixture. Let them stay in the bowl for about 5-10 minutes.
Once “sandwiches” are well coated, turn your stove to a low-medium flame and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place one “sandwich” onto pan and flip over once the bottom is a nice golden brown.
Remove the now French toast and repeat to the rest of the “sandwiches.” Top your french toast with a drizzle of maple syrup or fresh raspberries and eat!Calories* (Average): 425 Fat: 16g Fiber: 6g Protein: 10g
