Serves 1
Ingredients:

  • 2 slices Ezekiel sprouted grain bread (or your favourite bread – Sprouted grains are great because they are technically vegetables. To sprout a grain, you just soak it until it begins to sprout into a little plant. These sprouts are then ground up to make bread).
  • 1/3 cup of egg whites
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (1/2 for egg mixture and ½ for apples)
  • ½ tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. almond butter (or nut butter of your choice)
  • ¼ apple – grated

Take bread out of freezer, Ezekiel bread comes frozen so if you’re using fresh bread you can skip this step.

In a bowl whisk the egg whites, vanilla and ½ tsp cinnamon together. Heat a pan to medium heat and add coconut oil.

Soak bread in egg mixture and add to hot pan. Cook until golden brown on each side.

In a separate bowl combine grated apple and ½ tsp cinnamon for topping.

Spread almond butter on French toast, then top with grated apples and cinnamon.

Enjoy!
