Walnut-Cranberry French Toast
• 1 loaf of walnut-cranberry bread
• 1 tbsp of GoSun Cinnamon blend (cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, etc)
• 2 eggs
• 1/2 cup almond or coconut milk
• 1/2 cup of raw almonds or walnuts, chopped
• coconut or canola oil spray
• parchment paper or non-stick aluminum foil
Line the GoSun Sport or Grill tray with parchment paper or foil. If using the GoSun Grill, begin preheating to #3. Spray lightly with canola or coconut oil. Slice bread in 1 inch wide strips. In a bowl, whisk eggs and incorporate spice blend and milk. Beat until well mixed. Dip bread and coat well with egg mix. Layer the pan with bread and add chopped nuts on top. Insert in stove and cook for 25-30 minutes. If using a food thermometer, an internal temperature of 165°F indicates close to finished.
Pear, Apple, and Berry Compote
- 1 granny smith apple
- 1 pear, any kind
- 2 tsp GoSun Cinnamon blend
- 1 cup mixed berries (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries)
- 1 tsp coconut oil or unsalted butter
Thinly slice pears and apples, with skins. In a bowl, mix well with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ground cardamom to taste. If using Grill, pre-heat to 3 on the dial. Coat pan with coconut oil or butter, add apples and pears blend and insert in stove for 15 minutes. At this stage, incorporate berries to the pan atop the fruit blend, cook an additional 10 minutes.
Drizzle Grade A Amber Maple syrup or honey on french toast and serve with compote on the side.
(Bonus) Maple Flavored Whipped Cream
Whip 1 cup heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add 2 tablespoons maple syrup and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. Beat until stiff peaks form.
Note: This recipe makes for a less sweetened version of french toast. If more sweetness is desired, add honey or sugar to egg mixture. You can sprinkle confectioner’s sugar as well.
