Healthy Pancakes and French Toast

February is Hot Breakfast Month, and to celebrate, I wanted to help break the common misconception that hot breakfast meals are unhealthy.

It’s easy to whip up a healthy version of French toast or Pancakes for a sweet breakfast without the guilt. Carrington Farms and Viki’s Granola are comin’ in hot with their recipes for Gluten-Free Vanilla Flax French Toast and Maple Cranberry Granola Pancakes. Carrington Farm’s Flax Seeds help to lower cholesterol levels and support your digestive system, and Viki’s Granola is gluten-free and naturally sweetened with organic honey, dried cranberries, and a drizzle of pure maple syrup for the perfect touch of natural sweetness.

Whisk egg, milk, flax and vanilla together. Heat sprayed pan over medium heat. Place bread in egg mixture and coat both sides. Place bread in hot pan and cook for about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Serve with yogurt, fresh berries or syrup!
