French Toast Compote Comfort
TBH, this was my first attempt at making french toast.. & it was bomb. I really got in the mood for it when I was sick this passed week and my mom made it for me, with my direction of the ingredients i wanted her to use. Then she brought it to me in bed, like the little princess I am.
So, when I went to make mine I wanted to make it a healthier version rather than the sick girl version, which is amazing white bread with no toppings and bland.
3 pieces of Frozen sourdough sprouted bread
1/3 cup of vanilla almond milk
Pumpkin Pie spice (or cinnamon)
Pinch of salt
Butter for the pan, or Ghee
Chocolate Coconut shavings
First I made the batter. Take all the ingredients except the bread and mix until smooth.
Get your pan hot and buttered up.
Soak the bread on each side for a minute each.
Then place each piece on your skillet, until crispy on the outsides.
While you're cooking the french toast, blend a handful of strawberries with a splash of coconut water, or nut milk, and heat it in a pan for compote. (I didn't have any other berries)
I think french toast is so underrated as a food that can also be made healthy. Like adding other adaptogens to enhance flavor using ZERO sugar! and if you do feel the need to use sugar, date sugar is a great alternative as well as coconut sugar!
