French toasts

Updated: Nov 16


One of my favourite breakfast!


It remembers me of home (France) and I love it because it’s a mix of sweet and savoury! It also contains cinnamon which is good for your body.

It’s an antioxidant, an anti-inflammatory and it lowers the blood sugar levels.

Recipe for 2


  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 glass of coconut milk

  • 2 pieces of bread

  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon (you can add more if you like)

  • 1 handful of raspberries

  • 1 handful of blueberries

  • ¼ cup of maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon of butter




Instructions

  1. In a wide bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and cinnamon together.

  2. Coat one side of the bread slices in the liquid, then carefully flip them over and leave them to soak for 1 or 2 minutes.

  3. You want the eggy milk mixture to be absorbed into the bread but not so much that it falls apart.

  4. Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a large non-stick pan over a medium heat and add the slices of the soaked bread.

  5. Cook for 5 minutes or until golden, then turn to cook the other side for another 5 minutes.

  6. Transfer to a plate.

  7. Put the bread on plates, then add your toppings. A drizzle of honey or maple syrup works really well, or a sprinkling of cinnamon mixed with sugar. Add some jam, fruit compote or a few slices of fresh fruit or berries if you like. You can even turn it into a dessert with the addition of crème fraiche or ice cream.



Bonus

You can make caramelised pears to go with your French Toasts

The recipe is pretty easy


Ingredients

  • 2 pears

  • 1 tablespoon of butter

  • 2 tablespoon of coconut sugar (you can use any sugar)


Instructions


Peel the skin off of the pears and cut them in half.

Removed the seeds.


In a pan melt the butter on low/medium heat

Add the sugar and the pears.

Cook for about 10 minutes

Make sure that the heat is not too high to not burn the butter




And voilà ... Bon appétit!
