Healthy Pumpkin Pecan French Toast

Pumpkin.Pecan.French.Toast - HEALTHY version. Hiiii does that sound like the breakfast (or dinner, or dessert, or whatever) of your dreams? Sounds like mine! This recipe will NOT give you that post-sugar-sluggish feeling like regular french toast/pancakes/waffles/ does to me. PLUS the pumpkin, pecans, healthy bread, and 100% pure maple syrup serve up a nutrient PUNCH that you can feel fantastic about. So, all you need is:


  • Healthy bread of your choice. I thought it would be fun to use Dave's Killer Bread: White Bread Done Right, because it contains quinoa, spelt, rye, millet, and barley - now that's a great list of ingreds!

  • Pumpkin puree

  • Eggs

  • Vanilla Extract

  • Pumpkin Pie Spice

  • Cinnamon (because I believe you can never have too much cinnamon)

  • Pecans

  • 100% Pure Maple Syrup

  • Any other toppings you like (yogurt, whipped cream, fruit, etc.!)





Simply whisk together the pumpkin puree, eggs, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Prep your skillet or griddle with cooking spray. Take a piece of bread and dip one side in for a few seconds, then the other side. You want to make sure to coat the bread, but don't let it soak for too long, otherwise the bread may rip. Then plop each piece of bread onto the skillet or griddle and cook each side for about 3-4 minutes, or until it's just browned and not mushy. When you're ready to serve your french toast, sprinkle pecans and maple syrup on top, and enjoy!
