This creamy walnut pesto is a delicious and tangy alternative to traditional pesto. The perfect way to start the summer.
One of my breakfast staples is a sprouted grain bread by Food For Life. It's made with 6 different kinds of sprouted grains and beans, high in fiber, and (at least for me) easy to digest. All the things I need to keep me fueled until my next meal. Typically I'll get the "original" version, but lately I've been really into the cinnamon raisin variety. Usually I'll toast it up and enjoy it with some peanut butter and banana (you really can't go wrong with that) or with some avocado and soft-boiled eggs. But the other morning I was looking to spice things up. I had some eggs, and ricotta cheese leftover from some baked eggplant parm I made the night before (once I perfect that recipe I will post it!), so I decided to whip up some easy cinnamon raisin french toast. Now I know this sounds like a big ordeal, but it honestly took no more effort than toasting some bread and scrambling some eggs. Here is my recipe for Cinnamon Raisin French Toast!
Cinnamon Raisin French Toast
- 2-3 slices of Ezekial Sprouted Grain Cinnamon Raisin Bread
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1/2 cup fruit (I used a banana)
- Cinnamon to taste
Make sure the bread is thawed.
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs and place the bread to soak. Heat a pan on medium-high heat and melt coconut oil inside. When each piece of bread is saturated with egg, place in the pan and let cook about 2 minutes on each side, until lightly browned.
Plate and top with ricotta, fruit, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Enjoy every last friggen' bite!
