A healthy breakfast can be a challenge if your house is anything like mine. This french toast is an easy and tasty solution. If you pre-grind your flax and sesame seed mixture and keep it in the freezer, then this breakfast will only take about 5 minutes to make. Flax seeds are a great source of Omega 3′s and sesame seeds are packed with calcium. If you use a good quality whole grain bread like Udi’s Gluten-Free Chia-Millet bread and top off the french toast with fresh berries and a touch of real maple syrup, then you are having a well rounded, nutritious and delicious breakfast, that will keep you, and your little ones, going until lunchtime.
- sesame seeds - 1/3 cup
- flax seeds - 1/3 cup
Flaxseeds aid in the proper elimination of toxins. They are a great source of fiber which help to bind and flush toxins from the intestinal track.
- natural organic sugar - 1/3 cup
- Udi's gluten-free chia millet bread - 3 pieces
- egg - 1
- fresh berries - 1 cup
- maple syrup - dollop
- sesame seed oil - 1 tablespoon
In a dry saucepan, toast the sesame and flax seeds until they begin to pop.
Put the seed mixture in a grinder or a blender. This mixture can be kept for up to 6 months in the freezer, so you can grind a large quantity and save it for future use.
Combine the seed mixture with the sugar.
Beat the egg in a shallow bowl wide enough to fit the the bread.
Soak the bread in the egg, then, coat it with the seeds and sugar.
In a hot pan, cook the french toast with 1 tablespoon of good quality oil for high heat. I use Sesame Oil. Cook until the bread has got a nice brown crust on both sides. It should take about 2 minutes per side.
Serve with berries and maple syrup.
