Quick Healthy French Toast

My biggest vice is enjoying something sweet with my morning coffee – a little piece of biscotti, a bite of leftover cake, even a piece of nutty chocolate – whatever I have at the moment. I don’t put sugar in my coffee but I make up for it with my coffee pairings I suppose. I came up with this quick healthy french toast recipe a while ago to satisfy my need for a sweet breakfast without too much added sugar.

To me, the best part about this recipe is the naturally sweet flavor that’s brought to life with a sprinkle of cinnamon. The flavor deepens as you cook the french toast. And even better – its health benefits are numerous. You can top it with honey, maple syrup and/or your favorite seasonal fruits. My husband eats it the super healthy way – plain, without any toppings – that’s how good it is! Even if you’re not a cinnamon lover, this recipe works wonders. You can swap in a drop of vanilla essence instead if you like.

Everyone’s rushing in the morning: all you’ve got to do is gather 5 simple ingredients you’ll definitely already have at home and it’s all done in less than 10 minutes. Multi-grain bread (a few days old works great!), one egg, milk, cinnamon and a few drops of olive oil + this foolproof method = naturally sweet and flavorful, delicious, guilt-free, quick, healthy french toast.  I promise, waking up to this makes you feel like you’re on vacation breakfasting at one of those healthy-yet-delectably good cafes at a luxury boutique hotel.

A couple of tips while you’re cooking: dip the bread for just a few seconds on each side to avoid getting it too soggy and falling apart, cook on a medium-low flame to avoid undercooking the inside of the bread, and serve immediately when the french toast is fluffy and warm, before it has a chance to deflate!
