Do you ever feel like you get into a breakfast rut? I sometimes do! I tend to eat the same 2 breakfasts during the week – either oatmeal or eggs with toast. So on the weekends, I like to change it up. Sometimes that means going out for brunch with friends, and other times it means coming up with new recipes at home.
I recently developed a delicious new breakfast recipe that is perfect for kicking off the weekend: Cardamom French Toast! It’s really simple too - just the kind of breakfast I love.
Cardamom French Toast
1/2 cup milk
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
2 slices of sourdough bread
Oil or butter for pan
Find a shallow dish that is large enough for the bread slice. Crack the egg into it.
Add the milk, cinnamon & cardamom. Whisk together.
Heat pan over medium heat. Make sure to prep with some oil or butter when hot so the toast doesn’t stick.
As the pan is heating, lay the first slice of bread in the egg-milk mixture. Flip it over so both sides get coated.
Put the coated slice into the hot pan and repeat with the other slice of bread. You may need to add more spices to the egg-milk mixture.
Cook each side until golden brown.
When cooked, serve on plate topped with sliced banana & maple syrup.
Enjoy & let me know how your version comes out!
Sourdough bread is low FODMAP. I like Bread Alone Bakery’s French or San Fran sourdough. You can also try spelt bread if you can’t find sourdough – it’s another low FODMAP bread. Neither of these are gluten-free though. If you need gluten-free bread, try Canyon Bakehouse breads. My favorite is the 7 Grain loaf.
If lactose bothers you, you can use lactose free milk (such as like Lactaid) or a non-dairy milk (like soy or almond milk).
Feel free to adjust the spice quantities to your taste preferences. I find I often add more spices for the 2nd slice of bread.
If you are sensitive to fructans, look for a banana that is more on the unripe side. It will be lower FODMAPs than a ripe one. You could also change up the fruit topping to whatever you enjoy most!
100% maple syrup is FODMAP-friendly!
