After a long night of sleeping, little bellies need a wholesome breakfast to get there bodies ready for a day full of play! In my house, we like to feed the “grumpy bug” (that lives inside little bellies) so she can feel happy and have a good day.
French Toasty Hearts & Stars
4 slices of whole grain bread (we like to use this wheat/gluten free millet bread for extra nutrition)
Small cookie cutters (hearts and stars are our favorites)
I tablespoon pure vanilla extract
Dash of cinnamon, to taste
Pinch of sea salt
Using cookie cutters, cut shapes out of bread. Set aside.
In a small bowl, crack the eggs and add vanilla, cinnamon and sea salt. Whisk to combine.
Dip cutouts into the bread and coat each side.
Add a pat of butter, coconut oil or other in a pan over medium heat. Cook on each side for several minutes until golden brown. Plate and serve with Fresh Berry Sauce (see below)!
Fresh Berry Sauce
1 cup strawberries, hulled and quartered
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 teaspoon coconut sugar or honey
Juice of 1 lemon
Add berries to a bowl with the sugar and let sit for about 15 minutes, this will help the juices come out of the berries. Add berries and fresh lemon juice to a blender and puree. Yes it’s that simple…and very delicious!
This sauce is also delicious swirled in plain yogurt, over pancakes, spread on toast, as a dip for bananas, etc.
