Peaches and “Cream” French Toast

There is nothing better than a decadent breakfast treat that nourishes your body. This stuffed french toast is a great way to incorporate protein and start your morning off right. A light topping of powdered sugar is all this french toast needs, but feel free to add your favorite topping.

Ingredients ½ of a (12-oz) package firm silken tofu

3 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cup frozen peaches, thawed, chopped

1/2 cup skim milk

2 eggs

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 loaf french bread, 2-inch slices, ends trimmed

2 tablespoons butter


Instructions In a blender, combine silken tofu, maple syrup, lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla, salt and 1/2 cup of the peaches. Blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl with the remaining peaches.

In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, eggs and cinnamon.

Slice a pocket in each slice of bread for the filling, about 2/3 the way deep. Spoon in the fruit cream into each slice of bread. Place on a baking sheet. When all slices are stuffed, dip each slice in the egg mixture long enough to coat entire slice.

Over medium heat, melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet. When melted, add the french toast and cook until browned, about 3 minutes each side.

Serve with a dusting of powdered sugar and peaches, if desired.
