Healthy French Toast: A Healthier French Toast Recipe
French toast came from the genius minds of the French. True French toast is made with cinnamon. This is a key ingredient, so don’t forget the cinnamon!
French toast is considered a delicacy by breakfast lovers everywhere. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating about the delicacy part. It is a delicacy for me anyway. I thoroughly enjoy French toast. Texturally and taste wise it is a food for sophisticated pallets.
How To Make It
There are a number of ways one can make French toast. Most simply combine egg, milk and cinnamon. This is okay, but kind of boring. You can make it more delicious with a few additions. Perhaps adding a little fruit on the sides, Nutella, or powdered sugar.
How To Make It Healthier
French Toast isn’t considered a health food, but you can make it healthier.
Use free-range organic eggs. You will get the satisfaction of knowing, that the chickens were treated better. Use Whole grain or multigrain bread, it has more fiber and protein and is just better for you. Ditch the artificially flavored syrups and try real maple syrup. It’s more expensive but it taste way better than artificial syrups. Maple syrup is also high in iron.
