french toast

Fall is officially here which means we are close to the end of #betterbreakfast September inspired by Women’s Health Magazine! In case you missed my other posts in this series you can check them out here:

If you are all caught up, let’s dive into my next better breakfast recipes.

I was inspired by #ToastTuesday to come up with some healthy alternatives for having toast for breakfast. Here is what I came up with:

I came across these Multi-grain One Buns from Ozery Bakery when I was looking for the perfect base for my Toast Tuesday creations. They are nice and thin and have 7 grams of protein in them. I think they would also be great for burgers or sandwiches – its a much lighter option than a regular bun!

I made two variations of toast with these One Buns: avocado & poached egg toast and the classic french toast.

Ingredients for Avocado & Poached Egg Toast (1 serving)

one buns
1/2 avocado
1/2 tomato diced
1/4 white onion diced
2 eggs

How to make Avocado & Poached Egg Toast

Toast One Buns. Smash avocados with fork, mix with diced tomatoes and onions. Spread mixture over toasted buns. Poach your eggs (how to poach an egg here). Place the poached eggs on top of the avocado toast and enjoy!

Ingredients for French Toast

one bun
1-2 eggs
3 tablespoons almond milk
2 dashes of vanilla extract
pinch of cinnamon
fresh fruit – I used peaches and blueberries

How to make French Toast with Ozery One Buns

Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk with a fork until its a smooth consistency. Add in almond milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir until everything is mixed together. Next soak the one buns in the egg mixture (one slice at a time). Soak so that the entire slice has absorbed some of the mixture. You don’t want it to be soggy though.

Heat up frying pan. Once hot add either coconut oil or olive oil (I find the coconut oil gives it a sweeter taste but if you aren’t a fan, olive oil or grass fed butter works). Place the soaked buns into the frying pan and brown on both sides. Should take only a couple mins per side.

Serve on a plate with fresh fruit and a piping cup of coffee!
