Nutty French Toast

I was initially hesitant to use non-dairy milk to make my french toast. But I went ahead and took the risk since hemp milk was all I had in the fridge. Well, I have to say I couldn’t tell the difference. And I just added a little sprinkle of mixed nuts and a few berries and it was breakfast heaven! Simple, yummy and healthy… what more can you ask?

Ingredients (2 servings):
4 slices Whole Wheat Bread (slightly stale is best)
3/4 cup Hemp Milk (Rice or Soy will do, I’m sure), room temp
2 egg yolks
2-3 Tbs. crushed Mixed Nuts (or whatever you have)
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/3 tsp. Cinnamon Powder
Butter or EVOO
Pinch of Salt
Pure Maple Syrup
A handful of Berries (or some other diced up fruits)

Directions:
In a wide-mouth bowl, whisk the eggs along with the milk, nuts, vanilla extract, cinnamon powder, salt, a tablespoon of cooled melted butter or EVOO and a tablespoon of pure maple syrup. Dip bread into mixture for 25-30 seconds on each side and set aside.

Meanwhile, melt a dab of butter (or drizzle a little olive oil) in a medium-low heated skillet and cook each slice to golden brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side.

Serve with maple syrup and garnish with more nuts and/or fruit of your choice.

Berry Berry Good Pancakes

Good morning, ya’ll! Well, I had some batter left in the box and a few berries (blue, black & rasp) in the fridge, so I decide to go for a big breakfast today. Nothing like fresh fruits in your pancakes, I tell ya. A big breakfast once a week is not bad at all. Especially when it’s prepared the healthy way.

By the way, I sliced the berries so the juice would bleed when cooked. It’s a good thing, trust me!

Ahhh!! Now, I can say…. CARPE DIEM!

Ingredients: Pancake Batter, Berries (your choice), Walnuts, Pure Maple Syrup, Margarine with no Hydrogenated Oils, Mint Leaves

Directions: Slice berries in half and fold in with prepared batter along with some walnut pieces. Cook in non-stick griddle. Be careful not to overcook or it’ll dry out. Serve with butter and syrup. Garnish with mint leaves and more walnuts, if you want.
