Pumpkin French Toast- It’s What’s For Breakfast

 

Today’s workout so far was a morning treadmill run.

I’m already done with the first season of Orange is the New Black so I had to go with the standard season two of Sex and the City. Three episodes were good for 10 miles.

It was a little rough getting going, but we’ve got big plans today so my motivation was getting through it to have a fabulous day with the boys.

Holy moly it was a sweaty one. I had to wipe sweat off the treadmill a couple times during the run. It was pretty gross.

Oh and iFit is having a giveaway on their Instagram account for a couple of the iFit Active bands.

My pace today was a little under 8 minutes per mile at 1.5 incline. I definitely wasn’t up for any speed work or anything.

 

I had a long day of teaching classes yesterday.

Naturally, I couldn’t wait to sit on the couch and chow down once I got home. Granted I didn’t get to do that until after 9:00 pm, but when I did it was with Bachelor in Paradise and some paleo mac and cheese since all the men were in bed.

I haven’t made my own big dessert concoctions for awhile, but last night was a different story.

Just in case you missed it Instagram, here it is.

There were so many things going on in one bowl. I made cold oats with Love Grown Foods Super Oats, a cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and a little Vega Sport vanilla protein powder. They had been sitting in the fridge since earlier in the day. I stirred in a cut up chocolate chip cookie dough Quest Bar and some Power O’s and let that sit for a bit in the fridge while I ate my dinner.

Then I added a Silky dark chocolate cup, a scoop of maple vanilla Arctic Zero and a little PB2 powder.

I ate that goodness up while watching the show. I couldn’t finish the show, but I COULD finish the dessert. Ha.

 

Okay, moving one to more food.

Let’s talk Pumpkin French Toast.

Finally, right?

I actually have not had this for breakfast for over three days now. That will change very soon. I’m running low on my pumpkin supply though so I better get on that.

 

Here’s how this French Toast goes down over here.

My go to French Toast ingredients are these two things (liquid egg whites and Silk unsweetened vanilla almond milk).

Lately the bread I’ve been loving to use is this Petit Pain Pauline whole wheat bread from Trader Joe’s.

They sell these mini loaves for $1.99 each.

Here’s how it all looks around here in my ginormous pan.

And here are my usual toppings. I can never decide on just one so I use them all (SunButter, coconut butter, peanut free NuttZo and organic maple syrup).

It usually looks a little like this with some molasses drizzled on there too.

And, that’s how it goes. And that’s more than enough pictures of darn French Toast.

Okay, we’re off. We’ve got a big adventure planned for today since summer is almost over. Ahhh……..

See you soon!

 

What’s you favorite kind of French Toast and/or favorite topping?

What are some of the last minute summer activities you’re doing before school starts?

    Mon dieux! That French toast looks magnifique! Merci beau coups for sharing the recipe! I’m a PB, maple syrup, and bananas guy for my French toast toppings. One can never go wrong with carbs on top of carbs and a soupçon of nut-butter.

    No major last minute summer plans for this little scientist- mostly just trying to squeeze out as much sunshine as I can before the Seattle rains return. I hope you guys have a super-duper fun adventure today!

    Yes! I was wondering how I could add Nittzo to all that goodness. And then I saw your pic. Awesome! We will have to try that soon!

    I love my french toast topped with peanut butter and bananas.

    The French toast looks really good! I made the chocolate cups u had on a few blogs back. I have made them twice, not realizing how fast I finished off the first batch. I love how chocolatly and tasty they are! I tried making second batch in the food processor to try and break down the cocunut flour but that didn’t work. I don’t mind the texture, but I was hoping to get them alittle smoother! Thanks for the recipe,I’ll have to try adding pumpkin to my French toast! There is a place where I live that makes gluten free cocunut bread. It’s amazing. You have to place an order for it 2.5 weeks in advance.

    I am definitely trying this french toast this weekend! It looks delicious :)

    I am usually a big fan of the traditional syrup or powdered sugar on my french toast. Fruit is also really good. Now I want all the toppings! :)

    We are going up to my boyfriend’s family’s lake house in Canada for some sun, boating and relaxing next weekend. I can’t wait!

    This week I made a big batch of French toast with the Trader Joe’s version of Ezekiel bread. I put vanilla protein powder and lots of cinnamon in with the egg mixture. Yum! I tend to eat it topping-less, probably because I eat breakfast in the car a lot.

    YUM! Your dessert concoction looks ah-mazing! So much good stuff in there. We’re going to need to recreate this here in our kitchen asap… :)
