Raisin-Blueberry Olive Oil French Toast

04 September, 2012



Whole grain bread round
2 eggs
Almond milk, unsweetened (enough to submerge bread)
Vanilla extract (about 1/4 tsp)
Medium or mild extra virgin olive oil such as Arbequina (about 1/4 cup)
Fresh blueberries (as much as you desire)
Raisins (as much as you desire!)
Maple Syrup (the more you add the sweeter it will be - we like to use about 2 tbsp)

Cut off 4 one-inch slices from bread round.  In a bowl combine eggs, almond milk, and a tiny splash (about ¼ tsp) of vanilla extract.

Dip slices of bread into egg mixture, leaving them submerged long enough to soak up some of the mixture. In a large pan, cook 2 slices at a time until lightly golden on both sides.

In another pan, combine about 2 tbsp maple syrup with 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil.  Add more depending on how much sauce you desire. Add raisins and blueberries, and simmer for 1-2 minutes.  Serve bread with sauce on top!  Makes four slices (2-4 servings)
