No Guilt Lemon Ricotta French Toast in Minutes

I love breakfast and brunch foods but so often they are not the healthiest choices.  With this recipe you’ll use foods super close to nature to provide a more nutritious option (without compromise of flavor or deliciousness).  It is also great because it contains all your macronutrients (fats, proteins and carbs) so you’ll stay satiated longer.

frenchtoast

Ingredients (for one serving; multiply for each person you are serving):

  • 2 pieces sprouted grain bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. oil for cooking (coconut oil works great as does butter)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. ricotta cheese (room temp or heat in the microwave for 20-30 seconds)
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • Zest from 1/4 lemon (any citrus will work lovely)

Instructions:

  1. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat.
  2. Beat the eggs in a bowl and add the cinnamon and vanilla extract. Beat together thoroughly.
  3. Add oil to pan and heat until warmed and ready for toast.
  4. Dip each slice of bread on both sides into the egg mixture so that it soaks it up.
  5. Place the bread in the pan or griddle and brown on both sides (about 2-3 minutes per side, check to make sure it’s not burning).
  6. While the bread is cooking, pour the honey into a small bowl and zest the lemon into it.  Place in the microwave for 30 seconds to warm the honey slightly and to allow the zest to permeate it.
  7. Once toast is ready, spread the ricotta over one piece of toast.  Stack the other piece of toast on top and drizzle with honey to taste.  You may want to add a little citrus juice to the honey if your want more than an infusion of citrus flavor.

That’s it!  In minutes, you can have an amazing brunch or breakfast.

Until next time…Live Spiritually, Be Healthy and Enjoy Abundance,
