French toast with Silk Almond Milk and chia seeds

Do you make something special for breakfast on the weekends? Our weeks are so busy that it’s nice to sit down to some yummy comfort food.

Yesterday, I made healthy French toast with a twist — I added Silk Almond Milk and chia seeds.

I started with sprouted, organic bread, but you can use any bread you prefer. I like how this kind of bread adds to the nutty flavor and how healthy and hearty it is.

Adding chia seeds is a simple way to add Omega-3 and to feel fuller faster because they absorb 10 times their weight in water. And they add a fun, unexpected crunch to this French Toast. Surprise your kids with this!

If you want or have to avoid dairy, then any of the Silk milks are your friend — my favorite is Silk Almond Milk.

Silk is part of the Non-GMO Project, so you can be assured that the ingredients in Silk milks have not been gene manipulated. I avoid GMO food and drinks for health reasons and sustainability reasons, so seeing the Non-GMO Project logo is important to me.

And because I love the flavor of almonds, I added just a little bit of almond extract.

Here is the super-easy recipe for French toast with chia seeds:

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 or 4 slices of bread
  • 3 tsp Silk Almond Milk
  • 3 tsp of chia seeds
  • 3 drops of almond extract

That’s all! If you want to cut down on cholesterol, you could add egg whites instead.

Simply mix all of the ingredients together, coat the bread slices with the mixture, and brown them in a little bit of sunflower or coconut oil.

Three slices of this bread is enough for two to three people because it is so filling. Enjoy!

We had French toast this weekend too, though I’m sure ours was not quite as healthy. This looks delicious! Thanks for sharing the free coupons!
