Healthy French Toast


French toast is often viewed as a decadent meal, but it can actually be a very nutritious breakfast option! This recipe doesn’t use any added sugar (except for the optional maple syrup for topping), and uses whole grain bread (excellent fiber!), eggs (protein!), ​​and fortified almond milk or alternative (calcium & vitamin D!). You can top it with sliced fruits or berries for a fiber boost, and an extra dollop of Greek yogurt for some extra protein. Healthy AND kid-friendly!!
