5 Minutes + 5 Ingredients = My New Favorite Breakfast!

"It tastes like pancakes and smells like French toast bread!  Can we eat this for breakfast every morning?!" -- combined quote from my two daughters :)


Quick and Healthy French Toast Quiche

1/2 c "eggs" (2 Tbsp ground flaxseeds, 6 Tbsp warm water, dash of turmeric for color, and then a dash of pepper so you get the most out of your turmeric!)
1/4 c almond milk
1-2 pieces toast, ripped in pieces (high quality bread)
1-1.5 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp chia seeds (for a surprisingly sort of sausage-y texture/taste...not that I've had sausage in the last couple of decades!)
1 tsp pure maple syrup (optional, if you want extra sweetness!)

Combine all ingredients and cook in microwave for ~2 min. Drizzle a splash of pure maple syrup for an authentic French toasty taste, and enjoy :)

NUTRITION NOTES
  • Maple syrup is better than refined sugar, but it's still sugar!  So just a splash!
  • For bread, I prefer a "sprouted grain" or homemade from our bread maker. Please at least use a 100% whole grain bread.


Makes 1-2 servings. Eat as single serving, or divide mixture in to bowls to cook, or cut in half after cooking to share.

PS- I had this for breakfast before a 10-mile race Sunday morning, and that time I was quite generous with the pure maple syrup! ...that's the time to get those sugary carbs :)
