What do you do when you have a MAJOR craving for French toast but there isn’t a single slice of bread to speak of in your kitchen? Or maybe you DO have bread, but you’re just entirely too lazy to drag out the skillet and too impatient to wait
while drooling all over yourself for those little toasts to cook!
That’s cool…I gotcha covered! 😉
Remember when I mentioned a new oat recipe I wanted to share? Well, I’ve kid you not when I say that I’ve been working to perfect the ratios in this for months…but as of last week, I FINALLY got it and even though the words are not flowing as freely as I would like them too right now, I can’t wait any longer to share! So how about I just throw some adjectives your way?
The secret is in two ingredients…a WHOLE egg stirred in while cooking and the addition of butter extract…no exceptions! You can find butter extract/flavor in the baking section at most stores. I get this brand from Wal-Mart for only a couple of bucks. The strong flavor is incredible (a little goes a long way) and it is also one of my favorite ingredients to add to mug cakes and pancakes!
French Toast Oats
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 5-6 minutes
Keywords: stove top breakfast high protein high fiber #strangebutgood
Ingredients (Serves 1)
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon butter extract
- 1 large egg
- Toppings: sliced banana, hemp seeds, and maple syrup
1. Combine oats, milk, and extracts in a small pot and set over high heat.
2. Once boiling, crack egg into pot and stir vigorously with a whisk until smooth.
3. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 2-3 minutes or until oats have reached desired consistency.
4. Transfer to a bowl and top with fruit and/or nuts and don’t forget the pure maple syrup!
These are incredibly filling and totally cured my craving for French toast on multiple lazy day occasions. And while I’ve been adding eggs to oats for years now, I think pre-blogging me would have totally thought this to be the
weirdest strangest thing ever soooo…
After way too many weeks, I’m back and celebrating Friday with my Laura and my favorite bunch of foodies…where the eats are sometimes strange but ALWAYS good!
And yes, in case you didn’t notice, that IS my new scarf in the background! 😉
Am I the only one who grew up thinking flavored oatmeal was only possible if it came in a brown paper packet?
No offense Mom, but your “cafeteria lady porridge” was not what I had in mind!
What are your plans for the LAST weekend before Christmas?
I volunteered to work a shift on Saturday (cha-ching!), but before I go in, I’ll be celebrating Christmas early with my dad’s side of the family…and I’m getting together with the besties tonight! 😀
