Carrot Cake French Toast [Recipe]

Hi all! Hope you're having a great week! I'm back again with a new recipe that I literally have been eating....like, every morning. Don't get me wrong, I love some pancakes or waffles for breakfast - but I realized I haven't given much attention to french toast in a while! It was like a sign whenever I came across this Cinnamon Pumpkin Millet & Flax bread at a local health food store. It's from the company called Sami's Bakery! They make great products all from natural ingredients. photo 1 Their Pumpkin Bread is amazing on it's own - but combine it with the flavors of classic french toast & some sweet carrots and you've got yourself a quick & easy power breakfast! photo 2 Ingredients:
  • 2 or 3 pieces of bread of your choice!
  • 1/4 cup of shredded carrots
  • 2 TB Flax Meal
  • 3/4 Cup Liquid Egg Whites (or 2 Eggs & 1 Egg White)
  • 1/2 Cup Milk Of Choice (I used Vanilla Coconut Milk)
  • Splash of Vanilla Extract
  • Sprinkle of Cinnamon & All Spice
  • Splash of Liquid Stevia (about 5 drops)
Directions:
  1. Combine all of the ingredients (except the bread)  in a large enough bowl to fit the piece of bread into.
  2. Once the wet mix is combined, place a piece of bread into the mix & let submerge until it soaks up some liquid.
  3. Flip to the other side & let soak for a few seconds.
  4. Make sure to help the shredded carrots out - you may need to "scoop" the carrots onto the bread when placing it onto the stove!
  5. Place piece of bread into a medium heat & sprayed pan on the stove or griddle.
  6. Repeat this process with the other piece(s) of bread.
  7. Cook for a few minutes on each side until browned & a bit crispy!
  8. Remove from the pan, top with any kind of topping, & ENJOY!
I personally liked my French Toast topped with some 100% Pure Maple Syrup but you could try coconut nectar, molasses, yogurt, nut butter, a "dippy" egg (aka sunny side up), or anything you'd like! The possibilities are pretty endless since most combos go well with French Toast! If you try this out, let me know! Great way to start your day & fuel your body with protein, carbs, & fats. Cheers to a delicious power breakfast! be true to you, Kasey Arena   What's your favorite go-to breakfast??
