Breakfast in a Flash

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday :) I am sharing one of my favorite breakfast classics with you today.  Maybe you have found yourself in a bit of a rush in the morning and are looking for a new classic recipe.  I find that classic recipes are ones that require minimal ingredients and preparation, while always ending up a hit in this kitchen.

Today, that classic is french toast.  Dip bread in an egg wash that has been sweetened with the rich taste of cinnamon and warm vanilla, heat until golden brown and serve with fresh fruit and organic maple syrup.  Could there be anything better?

If my kitchen walls could talk: Minimalist recipes call for quality ingredients. I recommend using a hearty gluten free bread, such as Whole Foods Prairie Bread, or similar bread that combines nuts and seeds.  Vanilla is a key player as well, so be sure to use real vanilla as opposed to imitation.

Quick and Easy French Toast 


2 eggs
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk, unsweetened
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
2 slices hearty gluten free bread
1/2 tbsp grapeseed oil/butter

1. Combine eggs, almond milk, vanilla and cinnamon in a large pie plate, beating with a whisk until combined.
2. Set bread slices in egg wash, allow to soak for 5 minutes per side.
3. In a medium pan, add grapeseed oil or butter over medium heat. Once pan is heated add bread slices. Cook until golden brown 1-3 minutes per side, flip and repeat.

What's your favorite french toast topping?
