Cinnamon Spice French Toast with Coconut Yoghurt and Berries

Grain-Free Cinnamon Spice French Toast

 

French toast is a staple for a comforting and scrumptious breakfast. But why do we call it “French toast?” Many theories abound, but the most common is that the name actually originated from a grammar error. Back in 1724, a man named Joseph French introduced this recipe in Albany, New York. According to the story, he inadvertently forgot to add the apostrophe “s,” and thus the title was born. However, this recipe can actually be tracked through the centuries, all the way back to 4th century Rome.

Traditionally, French toast uses white bread dipped in an egg mixture, and is then fried up with some oil. Toppings include anything from honey, to syrup, to fruits, and more. A warm delicious treat, but like all things sweet and gluten-loaded, it can leave you feeling bloated. Not to mention all that sweetness sending your blood sugar through the roof. Not the best way to begin your day.

For breakfast, we should be having something more balanced. Something that will set your day up for success. Thankfully, I am here to bring you a French toast recipe that uses our low-carb, grain-free cinnamon bread, as well as other clean ingredients. Each serving of our cinnamon bread has only 4 grams of carbs, plus it is loaded with protein and fiber. Hale and hearty, this healthy version of French toast will ensure you feel more balanced and energized, eliminating the awful feeling you might get after a carb heavy breakfast. Now isn’t that a better way to start your day?

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Combine the egg, almond milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon in a bowl. Whisk together.

  2. Dip the cinnamon bread into the egg mixture, a few seconds per side, until well-coated. Heat a skillet over medium heat and cook bread slices for about 2-3 minutes on each side until lightly browned.

  3. Top with coconut yoghurt and drizzle some maple syrup. Then add your fresh berries. We used blackberries and raspberries, but you can use any fruit combination that pleases you!
