A Cloudy Sunday Morning

What's better than waking up on a cloudy Sunday morning knowing that you have nowhere to be? I love it I love it I love it!  Last weekend I was feeling hungry and creative - sometimes this turns into a disaster, other times it turns into me thinking I am a genius. This time -  genius!

French toast - nut butter - cinnamon - coconut - maple syrup. Sounds good, right?

Nut Butter French Toast
Makes 4 slices

Cashews & Walnuts (any nut will do)
1/4 - 1/3 cup   
Coconut, unsweetened, shredded  
1 tsp 
1/4 tsp  
1/4 cup  
1/2 bean or 1 tsp 
Whole grain bread 
4 slices 
Maple Syrup 


1. Throw nuts, coconut, cinnamon, 
and vanilla into a food processor. Blend for a couple of minutes until it starts to turn into a butter or paste. The longer you process the smoother it will be. (FYI - this is how you make nut butter! So simple!) 

2. Add eggs and milk and process until blended (we don't want big chunks of nut butter in the batter). This should take 10 seconds or less. 

3. Pour into a dish and soak bread on both sides until saturated. 

4. Add some butter/margarine/oil on a heated pan and cook over medium heat until golden brown. 

5. Drizzle with maple syrup and top with banana slices. 

Note: If you prefer a sweeter french toast you can add some maple syrup, honey, or sugar into the food processor when you add the eggs and milk.

Wishing you a weekend of wonderful mornings,
