Strawberry French Toast

Surprisingly, I am not too big on sweet breakfasts. I much prefer an omelet to stack of pancakes topped with syrup and whipped cream. I do have my days where I want something sweet, but most of the time, I'm more of an egg or bagel kind of girl.

I do, however, have a bit of a sweet spot for French toast. Perhaps maybe because it has that kind of cinnamon sweetness versus just straight up sugar. Either way, it's pretty tasty. I still generally won't get it as a meal if I go out to breakfast, but I may steal a few bites from someone who does.

Waking up this morning, I realized that I've put off food shopping for a couple days too long. The ingredients in my fridge have dwindled down, but I did have Ezekiel bread, eggs, and strawberries. So I decided I wanted to make a relatively healthy and not overly sweet French toast dish.

Here's what you'll need:

-2 pieces of Ezekiel bread (you can replace with other sprouted grain bread or whatever you prefer)
-2 eggs
-1/2 tsp flax seed
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-6 strawberries, sliced
-1 tbsp pure maple syrup

Instructions:

1) Whisk the eggs together in a bowl (a wider, flatter bowl is most ideal).
2) Add in the cinnamon and flax and continue to whisk.
3) Heat up a pan over medium high heat and coat with cooking spray.
4) Dip each piece of bread in the eggs, coating each with the egg mixture on both sides.
5) Cook both pieces of bread for about 2 minutes on each side until they're golden brown.
6) Remove the bread and place on a plate.
7) Add the sliced strawberries and drizzle with the maple syrup.
8) Enjoy!
