I love all things pumpkin, so when I came up with this French toast recipe, I was pretty excited, and also shocked about how quickly I inhaled them..they were that good! Some people don’t really enjoy French toast because of the eggy texture, and although this recipe contains 1 egg, you could also choose to omit it if you’d like πŸ™‚ Enjoy your Sunday!

Recipe: serves 2

4 slices gluten free brown rice bread (I used Udi’s chia/flax seed bread)
1 large egg (optional)
1/3 cup organic pure pumpkin puree
1 tsp organic pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp organic pure maple syrup
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Coconut oil (for frying)

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until well incorporated, then place a skillet over medium heat and add 1 tsp coconut oil.

Soak individual bread slices in the pumpkin mix until all sides are evenly coated, then fry both sides for about 2 minutes until golden brown.

Serve and top with more maple syrup and coconut cream or topping of choice.
