I am a huge fan of Powercake's Blog (http://powercakes.net). One of the things I love about her is she always talks about "treat" meals rather than "cheat" meals so this is the perfect option for a big Sunday morning "treat" Power breakfast! Inspired by Kasey at Powercakes! Hope you like it!

Pumpkin Power Bread French Toast†


For the Power Bread...

Ingredients:

† † † † Dry
  • Vanilla Protein Powder, 1 cup (around 4 scoops)

  • Coconut flour, 1/4 cup

  • Baking soda, 1 tsp.

  • Baking Powder, 1 tsp.

  • Cinnamon, 1 tbs.

  • Cloves, 2 tsp.

  • Ginger, 2 tsp.

  • Raisins, 1/4 cup

  • Dash of Salt

† † † †Wet†
  • Vanilla, 2 tsp.

  • Eggs, 2 whole

  • Egg whites, 4

  • Pumpkin puree, 3/4 cup

Directions:†Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add in your wet ingredients. Blend the mix with a hand mixture for 2-3 minutes. Pour the batter into a loaf pan sprayed with olive oil. Bake for 30 minutes. Times may vary slightly. Let cool, slice, and enjoy, or....make your French Toast!

For the French Toast:†

Ingredients:
  • 1 egg white

  • Splash of unsweetened Almond Breeze (under †a tbs.)

  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla

  • Your pumpkin bread

Directions:†Once your loaf has cooled, slice the bread into thin slices (the thinner the slices, the better it will cook). Whisk together the egg, Almond Breeze, cinnamon, and vanilla in a shallow dish or plate. Spray a skillet with olive oil spray and turn to medium high heat. When the spray starts to melt a bit, dip your bread into the egg mixture to cover both sides and place on the skillet. Flip the bread when the pan starts to sizzle a bit. When the egg mixture starts to brown on both sides your French toast is done! Serve with banana slices and a drizzle of peanut flour thinned out with water.

@ 6:18am ET on December 19, 2012 Good bread recipe!When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it.

I know one of the best ways to eliminate gluten from your diet is to just eat things that naturally donít contain gluten. However, there are times when you just really want a piece of bread because you didnít find anything else. Nowadays some companies selling ready-made healthy gluten free food products that are actually natural.
