Peaches and Cream French Toast


Smile! It’s peach season. I always get excited for seasonal fruits and veggies! I was food shopping for some essentials and needless to say, the peaches spoke to me! They were so bright and beautiful, I immediately though: I will for sure make brunch happen with these peaches! So glad I did, especially incorporating it in a French toast dish.

This mixture is generally healthier and the filling as well. I played with some of the ingredients and cut the fat and sugar content by at least half, if not more and this the end result. ! Yes it’s carb loaded, but carbs are life! You need them to think, so here is a carb day recipe for you!

PEACHES AND CREAM FRENCH TOAST
WHAT
For the French Toast Mixture

  • 1 egg white, 2 egg whites
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar or honey
  • 1/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4-6 slices of brioche bread (or bread of choice

Healthier Cream Cheese Filling

  • 1/4-1/2 low fat Greek yogurt
  • 1-4-1/2 low fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp honey

Caramelized Peaches

  • 2 peaches, sliced (save a few fresh sliced for garnishing)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • Sprinkle of coconut sugar
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Cooking spray
  • *Optional: lemon juice (not used in this recipe)
  • Maple syrup for drizzling (highly recommended)


HOW

  1. Mix all French toast mixture ingredients together. Set brioche aside.
  2. Mix together cream cheese mixture. Allow to chill slightly in the fridge.
  3. Caramelize peaches! Spray a frying pan with coconut oil (or any oil). Add fresh sliced peaches along with honey and cinnamon and allow flavors to marry. After a few minutes you’ll achieve the caramelization desired with the honey. If you’re peaches are tart, feel free to sprinkle some sugar.
  4. Dip brioche into french toast mixture and fry them on frying pan prepared with some baking spray or coconut oil, about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown color is achieved and break is “cooked through”.
  5. Layer bread with cream cheese mixture and add caramelized peaches over it, further layering with as many stacks of bread you desire. Repeat the process until your eyes are satisfied.
  6. Once done, add fresh peaches over the top and drizzle with warm maple syrup. You’ll be so happy you did!

*If peaches are quite ripe and sweet, add a splash of lemon juice so the acidity can break through the sweetness.
