Cinnamon Crunch French Toast Recipe

French toast is a well loved breakfast around our house.  It is a filling and delicious breakfast and so we make it a lot.  We have discovered a way to boost the nutrition without changing the flavor!  We added ground flax meal to our egg batter and created our Cinnamon Crunch French Toast.

We love Flax!  It’s so versatile, so healthy, so fabulous!  We just buy flax seeds and keep them in our freezer for whenever we need it.  It is super rich in omega 3’s (2 TBLS has 150% of your daily value).  Folate 15%, Fiber 20%, manganese 30%.  We put 1/2 cup of flax seeds in our blender and in 1 minute we had flax meal!

We added 3 tablespoons of the flax meal to our egg batter, along with some cinnamon and dunked our bread in it. Omega 3’s have a huge positive impact on your brain, especially for kids!   My kids love cinnamon and it was the perfect disguise for the flax meal.  You don’t know if you were looking at cinnamon or flax meal.

I heard that it’s best to simply mix flax seed to any beverage of your choice.
This way you get all of its wonder nutrients. You would not get all of its nutrients by cooking it.
Any thoughts on? I mix flax seed in my morning coffee and milk before bed.

We love our flax seeds around here too! Great addition in your french toast.
