Pumpkin Pie French Toast

Who doesn’t love the fall season?! The turning of the leaves, crisp, cool air, apple picking, the beginning of the holiday season, great food and, of course, pumpkin everything!

Why include this seasonal squash fruit? Yes, pumpkin is a fruit! Pumpkin is crammed with antioxidants, vitamin C, beta-carotene, fiber, and potassium. Plus, we can’t forget about those pumpkin seeds. These seeds are a good source of omega-3s, iron, protein, and minerals like zinc and selenium.

I’ve been adding pumpkin to seriously everything lately, and wanted to share one of my favorites…

Pumpkin Pie French Toast (Made Healthy!)

Yields: 2-3 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 organic eggs
  • Ezekiel bread - 5-6 pieces
  • 1 cup organic pumpkin (I used canned pumpkin in BPA-free can)
  • 1/2 cup organic unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 100% pure maple syrup
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Coconut oil

Directions:

Whisk together eggs, almond milk, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice in a mixing bowl.

Dip and coat both sides of bread with the mixture.

Add coconut oil to the skillet or griddle so bread won’t stick. (Add more oil as needed)

Over medium heat, cook on pan until golden brown. Flip and cook both sides.

Use pumpkin cookie cutter. (optional)

Top with organic 100% pure maple syrup, more pumpkin pie spice, and pumpkin seeds. Enjoy, and happy fall!
