Flax French Toast

I have this huge character flaw..a one track mind.  When I decide to do something, I literally can not do anything else.  That’s what happened today.   I have one thing on my mind and it has literally paralyzed every other aspect of my life, including blogging.  I like to share my blog posts in the morning, but as you can see, the one track mind won, and I completely forgot!

 

F Week starts with Flaxy French Toast! We have been eating French toast this way for years!  Adding flax to different foods your kids are already eating is a great way to increase the Omega 3’s in their diet, folate, fiber, and manganese.  And since my kids already loved French Toast, it was an easy add-in and we’ve been doing it as long as I can remember.   Today’s French Toast had a little different flavor than traditional.

Here is what we did:

  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 TBL ground Flax meal
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract.
  • 4 slices whole wheat bread

Mix eggs, flax meal, and almond extract in a shallow bowl.  Dip whole wheat bread into mixture and soak both sides of bread.  Remove from bowl and place on a griddle. Cook both sides until egg is no longer runny.

I love your menu planning and recipes. I just started blogging my family’s adventures in the kitchen – healthy with a bit of decadence. Look forward to reading and trying more of your recipes. Thanks for sharing.

we are going to make this this morning! Going to add a little bit of milk to it though! 🙂 Question: What do you use for syrup? Or topping for french toast?

Amy says:

Hi Brooke,
We like yogurt, berries, or this Juice syrup we make: http://blog.superhealthykids.com/2009/07/syrup-fruit-juice/
Good luck!
