HOLIDAY FRENCH TOAST WITH APPLE COMPOTE

21 Dec

  

Good morning! Only 4 days before Christmas!πŸŽ…πŸΎπŸŽ„ and since I love the holidays and all the yummy recipes it has to offer, I figured i’d start by bringing some yummy treats your way! I used sprouted ancient grain bread and 2 tbsp of coconut palm sugar to caramelize the apples. Alternatively, you could omit the powdered sugar or use 1 tbsp stevia with 1 tsp cornstarch for a sugar free powdered sugar alternative. 

Recipe: serves 2 

4 slices organic sprouted grain bread (I used Silver Hills ancient grain bread)

3 organic cage free eggs

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp organic vanilla extract

2 tbsp organic coconut palm sugar

2 small gala apples (cubed)

2 tbsp hot water

Olive oil and butter for frying

Powdered sugar, optional
First of all, make your apple compote. Place a skillet over medium heat and add sugar. When its starts to caramelize, add 2 tbsp of hot water and then add the apples. (The hot water it to prevent the sugar from clumping together since you’re using a small serving). Let the apples sautΓ© for 1 minute, then remove from heat and set aside, leaving the skillet covered (this allows the apples remain soft and juicy).

Add eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon into a bowl and mix until well incorporated. Place a skillet over medium heat and add 1 tbsp of olive oil, and then 2 tsp of butter. The olive oil prevents the butter from burning, which could also burn your bread. 

Dunk bread slices in the egg mixture until both sides are evenly coated, then place each slice in the skillet (you can place multiple slices depending on how big your pan is), and fry both sides until golden brown. 

When ready, top with apple compote and additional cinnamon and powdered sugar.
