My Trader Joe’s find this week….Cinnamon Bun Spread! So I knew right away French Toast would have you happen this weekend! I had some canned pumpkin in the fridge, so this delicious breakfast was an easy, delicious weekend treat.
1 serving: 2 slices gluten free bread (or your favorite bread) 1 egg 1 tsp Pumpkin puree 1 tsp Cinnamon 1 tsp Pumpkin pie spice 2 Tbsps almond milk (or your favorite milk) Toppings: Cinnamon Bun Spread Powdered Sugar (optional)
Combine egg, pumpkin, spices and milk. Soak bread in mixture. Pre-heat skillet to med-high heat. Melt butter or add oil or oil spray to prevent sticking. Place soaked bread in. Cook until golden brown (about 3 min) flip and cook other side.
Top with Cinnamon Bun Spread and Powdered sugar and enjoy.
Just in time for the weekend, my Leveled Up Pancakes. Super simple and super easy. All you need is your favorite pancake mix and a little magic. I think Pamela’s is the best gluten free pancake mix. Fluffy pancakes without the rice flour taste ( you know what I mean). I had some Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate chips on hand so I threw those in but these would still be delicious without. PB2 is powdered peanut butter and is amazing in smoothies and baking so definitely worth making a pantry staple. I had coffee creamer leftover from the holidays so it added some depth of flavor. You could always stick with unsweetened almond milk or whatever flavor creamer you enjoy. All you need is a little creativity and some simple substitutions to take a box mix to the next level. Added bonus, these are gluten-free and vegan, but taste like happy, yummy, Sunday Morning pancakes.
